REMIX: Frank Ocean – Pink Matter ft OutKast

In case you missed it on Friday, Frank Ocean managed to do what every hip-hop fan has been pining for: wrangle Big Boi and 3 Stacks on the same track. “Pink Matter” was already one of the standout cuts from my favorite album of the year, but Big’s slick wordplay only enhances the cut. Stream […]

New Big Boi – Shutterbug

The ink is still drying on Big Boi‘s newly signed Def Jam contract, but that didn’t stop him from dropping a brand new single.

Big Boi & Vonnegutt Preview "Sir Lucious Leftfoot"

I’ve liked everything I’ve heard so far off Big Boi‘s solo, Sir Lucious Leftfoot . “Royal Flush” was by far, one of the best hip-hop songs of last year and made OutKast fans pine further for a reunion.  I also like how on “Ringtone”, Big Boi opted for talk box, when everyone else is doing […]
