Big Boi

One half of history’s most famous rap duo, Big Boi sat idly for years while OutKast partner Andre 3000 stayed in the spotlight by way of acting forays and clothing lines. But Big’s first solo album, the awkwardly titled Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, is a deliriously fun statement of purpose that should stop fans from begging for new OutKast. There’s nothing overly artsy—just a flurry of quick punch lines, efficient arrangements and stereo-rattling beats. Highlights: a rock-fused Vonnegutt collaboration (“Follow Us”) a Janelle Monae-assisted ballad (“Be Still”) and a Scott Storch-produced throwback jam (“Shutterbugg”). Long delayed but now fully realized, Sir Lucious confirms Big’s genius, with OutKast or otherwise.
