Okay, I'm a music snob. One of my all time favorite albums of any genre is Outkast's ATLiens. Timeless. Magical. Image: http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRhbFaOvLv7x9pPtOrBPjshhLnORauTMn8CprA1ojZ-548j1KIGew
I miss Big Boi and Andre 3k rappin together. They need to reunite somewhere in the Egyptian desert sands not far from Mokattam Hills, smoke a fatty, and put pen to paper.
However, Big Boi just dropped a new solo album. I was very hesitant to even listen to it. But an ethereal voice summoned me.
Blown away! Big Boi far exceeded my expectations. Especially considering I've hated rap for about a decade and I've been on a very hipster electronic pop binge lately.
He found a way to collaborate with electronic masters Phantogram and Little Dragon. Listen to this killer song: Big Boi - Lines
If you like it, check out the rest of his album. Very Outkast-ish but with a sonic electronic dreamscape sound. Very un-rap. Very cool. Image: http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT2Umf_0RuOI67YyrHMYzrMgnvcxjC1yJbDjmgTCJ0Gs6Daw7h6qQ
