Big Boi - 'Higher Res' (feat. Jai Paul & Little Dragon) [Listen]
Let's be honest, as much as a Big Boi album without the fluff is appealing (he's one half of Outkast for christ's sake), we're all pretty hyped to hear the many collaborations that appear on his forthcoming album, Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors.
Unfortunately his collaboration with mystery man Jai Paul and Little Dragon, which has been hyped up the wazoo in recent weeks, falls flat. Perhaps the 'proper' version will have less of a 'drowned at sea' feel to it, but I guess we'll find out on December 11th.
Big Boi has also unveiled he'll be working on his next solo LP while on the road with Outkast: "You’ll definitely get a couple of songs before the end of the year. "Whether the project is done or not just depends on how wild this road gets." [read more]
