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.
Big Boi and friends held a FREE concert last week at the Yaarab Shrine Temple in Midtown. The event, hosted by KIN, was part of a new social media experiment where the power of social media (ie Twitter/Facebook) is used to relay information about ‘KIN Spot’ events.
Information about Big?s show was revealed one detail at a time over the past week, with the final location being shared just hours before the artists went on stage.? I shared a bit of the concert footage with you a few days ago:
Antwan “Big Boi” Patton shows off his ‘Shine Blockas’ on the new album cover for Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, which hits stores July 6th.
Speaking of Sir Lucious, he performed last night at a FREE (yup FREE!) concert held at the Yaarab Shrine Temple. Jay Electronica & Yellawolf warmed up the crowd, who were already pretty lit with all the FREE (yup FREE!) liquor.

Two of my favorite people, Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and Cory “Black Owned C-Bone” Andrews hit up Atlanta’s club Utopia last weekend dressed like they were in the frozen tundra.? Mario may have jumped on the PETA bandwagon with his “Ink not Mink” campaign but apparently, Big Boi, C-Bone and dem believe in “Ink PLUS Mink”. 😆
Big Boi’s “Shine Blocka’s” video also premiered via StraightFromTheA.com at midnight 2010. Click Here if you missed it.
BlackOwned C-Bone aka Corey Andrews was first introduced to the mainstream rap game through his appearance on the Dungeon Family “Even in Darkness” album on the curtains closing track, “DF 2nd Generation” alongside Killer Mike, Slimm Calhoun and many more.? C-Bone continued to gain exposure through his numerous platinum selling guest appearances such as Purple Ribbon’s “Kriptonite”, OutKast’s “Gangsta Shit”, Big Boi’s “Tomb of the Boom” Yung Joc’s “Dope Boy Magic” and many more.
In addition to his solo status, C-Bone is also a member of the rap group KonKrete alongside Lil Brotha (Big Boi’s younger brother) and Supa Nate. He also serves as Big Boi’s hype man (Click Here to see he & Big Boi in action LIVE) and is a member of Twan’s Purple Ribbon imprint.
Blackowned C-Bone is currently working on his upcoming mixtape titled “The Strong Pack” and two singles from the project: “Star Wars” and “When the Beat Drop” have been circulating the net. You know it’s a hot record, because Big Boi himself picked it out to be the next single!
