Big Boi (of Outkast)
Antwan Andre Patton a.k.a BIG BOI is an American Hip-Hop artist and producer. He is also one half of the Hip-Hop Supergroup “OUTKAST” and one of the genre’s prominent solo performers. His upcoming solo album is Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty.
Big Boi transformed into his more mature self, Sir Lucious Left Foot, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2007 and began recording his first stand alone solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty, set to arrive July 6th on Def Jam Recordings. The day carried an extraordinary energy, similar to five years earlier on the same holiday, when Big Boi started working on OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, a milestone double album featuring solo CDs by Big Boi and his partner-in-rhyme Andre 3000, which went on to win three Grammys and become one of the best-selling hip hop albums in history, 11 times platinum in the U.S. and over 15 million worldwide.
