According to Boi, the long-awaited album is still being recorded.
"The album is done," says Big Boi. "Right now I'm just shooting videos. I'ma shoot a video for just about every song on the album. I shot like five videos so far, for the past three weeks. I've been editing those videos... it's coming man it's coming. I know everybody's been waiting and I'm anxious to give it to them. But it will be here soon. Trust me." (XXL Mag)

Big Boi recently killed rumors of his new album dropping on Def Jam Records.
"It's not even on Def Jam," Boi explained in an interview. "It's not even on Def Jam. I was in a little situation, the [journalist] jumped in the interview, we was in the midst of talks and then in the midst of that, some more things happened and we in a great situation right now. That'll be announced very soon. The album should be out I think -- in about 12 weeks maybe. So you know, it's coming real soon." (Maurice Garland)
Boi previously said his move to Def Jam was nearly complete in an interview last summer.
"The lawyers just have to finish their lawyering," Big explained, and added that he was happy to be working with LaFace co-founder and current Island Def Jam Chairman and CEO LA Reid again, since "he's been with us since the beginning." As Big put it, "I just gave you the scoop of the century, man." (EyeWeekly)
