Dirty Laces was chosen to sit in on a conference call with Big Boi from Outkast. The call not only had Big Boi on the line but major DJ’s from the East Coast such as DJ Money Bags and DJ Nawte. Keep reading to see what we learned about this hip hop legend!
Since the ‘90s, Big Boi is able to proclaim himself today as one of the most successful rappers throughout the history of hip-hop. If you don’t think so yourself, then you obviously need to get out from under the rock you’ve been living and start realizing how he has changed the game since he’s been in it. With Outkast, Andre and Big Boi dominated the music industry and won six Grammy Awards as well as selling over 25 million copies of just eight album releases.
When he went solo, Big Boi was featured on tracks such as Trick Daddy – In Da House, Jay-Z – Poppin’ Tags, and Beyonce’ – Hip Hop Star proving that he was still among the best artists in the industry. Even with his success, his new album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” didn’t fall short from all the expectations. Dedicated to his father, who recently passed away at the start of the album, Big Boi gained great acclaim from many critics, claiming that the album contained inventive sound and varied musical style and when asked how he remains to be one of the top hip hop artists even today he claims, “Stay original, keep reinventing yourself, stand out from the crowd, and keep it real, funky, and exciting for the fans.” Big Boi hopes to influence young artists to hopefully reach the level that he’s at today and push people to get out of their comfort zone and stay hungry for success.
