Check out this new pic Twan dropped from his TWITTER page yesterday. He and George Clinton kickin it on the video shoot for “For Yo Sorrows.
The song was first leaked right here on SFTA and can still be downloaded for your listening pleasure. Big Boi’s highly anticipated and much delayed, “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty” drops March 23rd.
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton recently announced that his Big Kidz Foundation, an Atlanta youth organization aimed at “positively affecting literacy, mathematics, public speaking, and artistic inclination through use of humanities,” plans to open a new chapter in Savannah, Georgia.
It is my hope that the children in these undeserved communities officially become part of the national conversation that we have been left out of for years. The efforts within this program will not only stress education, but will stress exposure to culture.
Big visited Savannah High School last week while he was in the city filming a few new videos. He spoke with the students there and shared memories of his childhood:
I was born in Savannah and grew up here, I remember growing up and not knowing there were a lot of things for our youth and ever since then I’ve been speaking to them and I think that Big Kidz will get them prepared as well.”
I’m so proud of Twan! Always doing good in the hood!! Big Boi’s long-awaited solo album ‘Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty’ will be in stores on March 23.
