OutKast's Big Boi has said he is already putting together a follow-up album to his forthcoming Sir Luscious Left Foot solo project.
According to Boi, his admiration for the art of hip-hop and making new music has fueled the next project.
"Yeah...I just like to keep recording, man. In the meanwhile, while we try to piece together the 'Kast record and see which records we're gonna use for the 'Kast album, I just been steadily recording records. For this album right here I recorded maybe 30-something, almost 40 records... I'm piecing together the next album too, the follow-up to Lucious Left Foot...Lucious Left Foot, Andre 3000, then the 'Kast record, and then we'll see what's gonna happen after that...Hey man, gotta keep recording. It's all about spreading the love and really saturating the Funk into the system. That's what we specialize in." (Hip Hop DX)
The rapper recently talked about his new music video for his single "Shutterbug."
"It's basically a cut that's all about capturing the moment, whether it be your kid's first steps or you got a Polaroid and you with your lady somewhere," Big Boi explained to MTV News from the Atlanta set of the song's video. "It's about capturing the moment and getting them good times. When you look at certain photos, it takes you back to the moment, and that's what it's about. It's a funky, get-down, slap-your-sister-in-the-mouth jam." (MTV)
He also explained how Scott Storch came to be a part of the song.
"I flew down to Miami for a meeting with Scott Storch," said Big Boi. "Scott said that he had a beat for me that he was sitting on for a few years. He played it, it was bananas. I brought it back to Atlanta, put all that funk on it; bringing my keyboard players in, my guitar players in and then commenced to lyrical destruction. I wanted this song the capture the good times of getting back to emceeing, real lyrical content and having fun. That's what we do and what we specialize in. The music has always been funk, bass, that Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. We're bringing it back to the essence." (All Hip Hop)
His Sir Luscious Left Foot album will reportedly feature multiple Andre 3000 collaborations.
"It's already done," Boi said referring to new Andre 3000 collaborations. "We got three songs on the record, I ain't played that yet, I got to save something to hold it. Dre actually produced a record and we got a record that was produced by Boi-1da and it's me and Stacks, two verses a piece, back to back, just a lyrical manslaughter. Like, who better than the Kast n*gga? Nobody." (DJ Delz TV)
