Big Boi was spotted chillin with Minnie Mouse during his vacay at Disney World. You betta watch your back Twan, I heard Mickey is a jealous mofo! 😆 It seems as though Big Boi is getting some much needed R&R before hitting the promo track for the release of his highly anticipated solo project, “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty”. The first single from the upcoming album, Royal Flush, was released March 2008 and the second single is “Sumthin’s Gotta Give” featuring Mary J. Blige.
I think this is the cutest photo ever! A-town meets Magic Kingdom…Love it! Mad props to Freshalina for the heads up on the pic!
I spotted this video a while ago but totally forgot to post it but I’m sure you Dungeon Family fans will appreciate this video footage captured during their Vibe cover shoot in Piedmont Park last month.?? I’m prone to believe the consensus that a Dungeon Family reunion is the only thing that could save this town.
The Dungeon Family. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Anybody who has been here since the mid-90s can tell you that even moreso than Dallas and Jermaine and only second to LaFace, the DF made Atlanta cool, so only they can reinstitute the groove and save the city. If that fails, expect me to speak to you from New York or Los Angeles in 2010. ~ via TheUnderwriter’s “Why Atlanta is Dying Off”
There’s way too much infiltration going on and we need to bring it back full circle. Back to OUR sound….go straight NATIVE on they “A”zz. *sigh* In the meantime, we’ll all just burn out our “A”pods listening to classics like Outkast’s Southernplaylisticadillacmuzik, Goodie Mob’s Soul Food and Witchdoctor’s A S.W.A.T. Spiritual Healing.
My boo Twan…aka Big Boi has made some major moves recently. From Jive to Def Jam but always…. “Straight From The A!”? I wish him nothing but the best!
On the phone Thursday night from a recording studio in Atlanta, Big Boi of Southern hip-hop legends OutKast confirmed that he will be leaving Jive and signing to Def Jam, who will be releasing his long-delayed solo album, Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. ?The lawyers just have to finish their lawyering,? Big explained, and added that he was happy to be working with LaFace co-founder and current Island Def Jam Chairman and CEO LA Reid again, since ?he?s been with us since the beginning.? As Big put it, ?I just gave you the scoop of the century, man.
Purple Ribbon Entertainment will still be distributed by Virgin Records but his upcoming solo project, tentatively titled Sir Luschious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, will be a Def Jam release.? It’s still unknown as to if Andre 3000 will follow suit and leave Jive, and Big Boi has always mantained that Outkast is still intact. It’s my understanding that both after he and Dre’s solo projects are complete, the Outkast project begins. But I guess we’ll just have to take his word for it and wait and see.
I was in Big Boi heaven Saturday night as he, C-Bone, Khujo Goodie and a few other Dungeon Family members all converged on The W Hotel in midtown for 790 The Zone’s Stewpendous Awards Post-Party, Sponsored by Crown Royal. I was posted front and center as it all went down and grabbed a bit of video coverage for you fellow Outkast stans.? We all know I’m not a videographer, but I did my best while holding my drink in one hand and doing my two step to the beat.
Now, y’all can take this anyway you wanna, but I could totally care less if not nann one of you watch these videos! On the real….I’m having my own lil concert over and over again with this footage…
he Stewpendous Awards Post-Party, Sponsored By Crown Royal was the place to be Saturday night (July 11), when well-known personalities in sports, entertainment and media like Boris Kodjoe, Mr. Collipark, Lamman Rucker and Angie Stone and more all came out to lend their support to The 2 Live Stews and the 790 The Zone Foundation.? Guests were treated to a special live performance by Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum recording artist Big Boi and danced the night away to the sounds of legendary DJ Kid Capri.
My sister in the spirit Crunktastically Fresh sent me over a slew of A-town pics yesterday while we were shootin the sh*t on Twitter.
Fresh knows how much I loves me some Twan and threw in Jane Fonda and Dallas Austin for the low low. This pic was captured a few years ago during Jane’s Atlanta premiere of Monster in law.
Some of y’all may be surprised to see Jane, a classic/cultured icon, throwing “gang signs” (as my mom calls it) but she totally reps the “A”…hell she dayum near got HALF of it in her divorce settlement from Ted!? She owns this b*tch!
That’s how we get y’all. We send Big Boi over to schmooze…Dallas for the close and then “BAM!”? You’re throwing “A” signs everytime you see a camera! Love it…Feel it…Embrace it! Yeessssss 🙂
