Biography

Savannah, Georgia (1991 – present)

Antwan André Patton (born February 1, 1975 in Savannah, Georgia), better known by his stage name Big Boi, is an American Grammy Award winning rapper, producer, actor and half of the critically and commercially successful hip hop duo OutKast. Big Boi met André 3000 while attending high school in the 1980s and the two eventually joined forces as OutKast and signed with LaFace Records. After six successful albums as a duo they both decided to work on solo projects, and Big Boi’s debut solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty was released July 6, 2010 and his second solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, was released on November 13, 2012. The Mama Told Me Songfacts reports that his sophomore set’s title is a dedication of sorts to his recently deceased grandmother.

He can be identified by his rapid delivery and intricate rhymes, a style which has become more distinct since the album ATLiens.

In addition to his OutKast and Dungeon Family work, Big Boi has featured in other artists’ songs. His most notable guest appearances were on the 1999 Missy Elliott hit, “All N My Grill,” the Youngbloodz’ “85 South,” and Trick Daddy’s 2001 single “In Da Wind.”

After four increasingly successful albums as a duo since 1991, André 3000 decided to make a solo album as a side project.

    Sir Lucious Left Foot...The Son Of Chico Dusty shocked me a lot since I found the love below to be the better album by a long shot.

    Don't believe the "Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors".

    Vicious Lies is definitely a grower.. Didn't really feel it at first, but I'm pretty much in love with it now. Higher Res is still terrible though.

    OMG Little Dragon, Kid Cudi Phantogram, Killer Mike, A$AP Rocky, Big K.R.I.T., Theophilus London and mainly Wavves, all in just one album, is so fucking epic. Goodbye P.O.S., El-p, Sadistik and Kendrick Lamar, i find a new favorite rapper.

    a bit disapointed by the new album. I was one of the persons that was in fact waiting for a Sir Luscious Left Foot v2 kind of album. It's just hasn't been a memorable listen, maybe it'll grow on me.
