While I was sleeping, my boo Twan hit up Atlanta morning show Good Day Atlanta to discuss his newly released project, Sir Lucious Leftfoot:Son of Chico Dusty (in stores NOW!) and also to speak about something even more important…. the kids!
Big Boi’s Big Kidz Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing socially conscious youth. It is his hope to create culturally enlightening experiences for kids who normally wouldn’t have those opportunities.
Their vision is to positively affect literacy, mathematics, public speaking, and artistic inclination through use of humanities.
On July 17th, Big will host a celebrity art event — Art of Life/Canvas for Kidz — to raise funds for Big Kidz Foundation. Participants will have the opportunity to bid on art from several of Big Boi’s celebrity friends, including Idris Elba, T.I., Ludacris, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, The Atlanta Housewives and many more.
I’ll be there front row center laughing my “A”zz off. I can’t wait to see what Tip painted! Seriously it should be a fun time for all.

My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and his boo, Sherlita, were spotted in New York celebrating the release of his highly anticipated album, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty.
Mr. & Mrs Sir Lucious make such a cute couple!
Big’s album dropped Tuesday (July 6th) and he’s been on the grind every since. Hitting up the likes of The George Lopez Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, 106 & Park and even CNN, where he discussed leaking “Looking For Ya,” the song he did with Andre 3000 that Jive blocked from his album. Continue Reading…
Big Boi’s highly anticipated album, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty, hit stores today and he launched a new video for “General Patton,” one of the hottest tracks off the album.
Just FYI…if you purchase the DELUXE digital version of Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty on iTunes, you’ll get all of Big’s Sir Lucious videos for your collection. I was shocked to find I had “Shutterbugg,” “Follow Us,” AND “General Patton” already on my dayum iPod after my purchase!
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton aka “Dick Fury” aka Sir Lucious Leftfoot aka my Baby Daddy just dropped a mixtape for all you “dummies” out there who must be reminded of his lyrical greatness.
In case you haven’t noticed, General Patton isn’t just a local yocal… my boo is loved worldwide! DJ X-Rated & DJ Esco have compiled some of Big’s best verses to bring you “Mixtape for Dummies: A Guide to Global Greatness.”
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton got BET awards weekend started in LA during Def Jam’s Pre-BET Awards celebration. Twan, ripped the stage performing “Follow Us” with Vonnegutt and Scott Stortch, followed by Shutterbugg where he was joined on stage by BlackOwned C-Bone.
Sir Lucious Leftfoot covers the recent issue of Ozone Magazine. In the issue, Big Boi discusses his upcoming release and why he’s still fighting for the integrity of his music:
The people are not picking the music, it’s the suits now picking the music for the people to listen to. There’s not a lot of respect for it. It’s all about the dollar, so they want what sells the fastest. With music being such a fast burn nowadays, there’s a new song today and a new song tomorrow and another one on Wednesday.
My thing is, my focus is to make timeless classics and not conform into what’s going on now.
You tell’em boo!
