If certain whisperings are to be believed, Big Boi is looking set to join Adz from 5ive, football pundit Ron Atkinson and Sophie Anderton on this year's Celebrity Big Brother.

His people refuse to confirm or deny the rumours at present, however it has been said the Outkast rapper will recieve £300,000 for his participation.

(Editor Kris: If true this is a very upsetting career move for someone who makes up half of one of the finest hip-hop partnerships in history, Outkast, who were a pivotal influence on the entire genre. A stark contrast to André 3000 who is currently filming the lead role in a Hendrix biopic. Hopefully they can get back in the studio soon.)

Big Boi's most recent release was in 2010. Watch the video to his completely brilliant track 'Shutterbug' below.
