Pitchfork Media is reporting that Big Boi’s latest solo album is coming along quite happily. Considering how well Spearboxx/Love Below sold, I can only imagine that this album will probably go at least platinum soon after release. Here’s a quick peek at what the Pitchfork article says:
“”It’s like a recession special. I’m talking about what’s going on in the world, with everything from rising gas prices to the election. It’s just my insights on life up to this point.” The album will feature production with from longtime ‘Kast collaborators Mr. DJ and Organized Noise. Wooo!”
For those of you who’ve been paying attention, Mr. DJ has also just agreed to produce most of the new Common album.
Big Boi is doing his best to make this album more relevant, trying to talk about more politically important issues and all of that. He says he’s really trying to talk to the public, but I guess we’ll see!
All we can find is a really, really, raw cut of a single off the new album (tentatively titled “Sir Luscious Left Foot”). The single is called Royal Flush, featuring Raekwon.[audio:http://cache09-music02.myspacecdn.com/68/std_422565accd160e360f5a23795ce6e47c.mp3]
