Chase Tatum was found dead 6 days ago of an accidental drug overdose. Tatum, pictured above in a promo pic from the film Who’s Your Caddy along with Faizon Love, Big Boi and Finesse Mitchell, formerly worked as a road manager and personal assistant for OutKast. Tatum was also well known as a professional wrestler, which apparently is where he developed the back problems which lead to his addiction to pain-killers. Tatum was 34.
Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father said the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.
“He was in the process of getting his life back together,” Roy Tatum said Monday. “He was confident he was going to turn things around, to live a normal life again without those painkillers.” (Source)
I get a tingling sensation everytime I see Big Boi (peep my header)…but I couldn’t drive straight when I heard this new song on the radio yesterday! Big Boi and Dre reunite (along with Raekwon) for “Royal Flush,” which is the first single from Big Boi’s upcoming solo joint. This song is soooo hott! This ish rite hurr…this ish rite hurr…is what we’ve been missing!
While Dre is out making movies, the other half of Outkast is collaborating with the Atlanta Ballet. The A’s own Big Boi has joined forces with the Atlanta Ballet for the world premiere of “Big”. He will also be joined by other artists from Purple Ribbon Entertainment. There are 6 planned performances which will be held at the Fox Theatre April 10th – 13th.
One question though….can Big Boi dance? I’m going just so I can find out!
Good music never gets old! This is now one of my favorite videos and you already know Outkast, Goodie Mob and the entire Dungeon Family are my favorite ATLiens. The song “In Due Time” is from Soul Food: Soundtrack – Music From The “Soul Food” Motion Picture but the video has nothing at all to do with the movie. It was filmed in Savannah, Georgia (Big Boi’s “hometown”) and I’m still laughing at the cameos…C-Bone, Erykah Badu, Goodie Mob…!
…and Andre 3000 with that dayum “Bling, Bling, Bling, Bling, Bling” proves it…no debate necessary! Them dudes is crazy as hell…but that’s why we love them so much!
