The hustle never stops, and although the odds of getting another Outkast album are looking slimmer and slimmer as the years go by, the powerful rap duo continue to push forward in separate endeavors: Andre 3000, the film star and his hip hop cohort Big Boi the HNIS [head n*gga in socks].

That's right. In a recent interview, the Atlanta rapper revealed that he intends to take over the lucrative sock game, with plans to drop his very own line of designer socks.

Outkast rapper Big Boi has launched his own line of socks, on sale exclusively in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. The rapper, who is due to release his new solo album later in the year, spoke to GQ about his decision to release his own line of socks, saying: "I'm the sock king! They've got a cape on the back - that's how I flew here."(GigiWise)

If you remember a few years back, he and Dre had a clothing line named Aquemini. While the brand lasted less than a few years, perhaps by zoning in on with particular article of clothing, in this case socks, Big Boi will rise to the top. Hey. Stranger things have happened.

"I got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles. Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta, Georgia, 30318 and get some!" Big Boi's new album, titled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours, will be released in November and is the follow up to his 2010 album 'Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty'.(GigiWise)

SOHH Watcha Think: Is this gonna turn out well for Big Boi, or should he give Andre another call and see what's really good on a new Outkast LP?
