Video: Big Boi Interview w/ DJBooth.net

DJBooth.net catches up with Antwon at Rock The Bells Chicago.

In the sixth of eight exclusive video interviews shot behind the scenes at ’09’s Rock the Bells opener, DJ Z goes backstage with Big Boi to discuss his feelings on being the only Southern artist on the festival lineup, when fans can expect a new Outkast album, and the jewelry he was rocking onstage.

Big Boi’s long-awaited solo debut, Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, is tentatively set to drop in September (via a brand new record label).

    so how long do we have to wait for joe budden to release a diss song, then follow up with a vlog sayin sorry. I think he went at the wrong nigga, he musta been under the impression his celebrity is > that Wu. The internet has a strange way of skewing ones self perception.

    he ain’t gonna drop shit… cause if he goes at Deck, he’ll lose alot of revenu for the group and he knows it, cause slaughterhouse fans are Wu-Tang enthusiast, and they’ll cut his ass off quick (nh) if he crosses the line… you saw the crowd go bucc when Deck said fuck joe budden, Ws were thrown up quick

  24. Ghost Writer Says:

    I’m cool with Budden and I’ma fan of his music but he gotta stfu some times….stop bitching about being better than every rapper….why go out of your way on camera to say “your list is wrong and you’re stupid” there’s no gain with a fucking list…who gives a fuck…let the music do the talking….

  25. sleep AKA I'M 2 COOL 4 U DUDES 2 RIDICULE Says:

    …waits for Budden’s Girl?/Tribe to rescue ranger.

    –Ok amp

  27. cOLD Says:

    basically by joey googling himself, his attitudes are developed by watching himself on the tube, but thats not his real self, and it fuels his attitude by watching his own behavior. His whole life has become the internet… and he’s lost contact with the real world. He has a son that needs raising, not public scorn and humiliation.

  28. Aram "Mr. Coke is a Popular Drug" aka Alfable Alpaca aka Congenial Complexion Says:

    Day n Night gets played on alternative stations/clubs

    therefore as far as popularity its > Best I ever had

    it took u 4 yrs to figure this out

  42. Darth Cipher Says:

    if you in a car full a niggas, and you play Best I Ever Had, i might think you’re suspect… if someone starts mouthing the lyrics, i might think they’re gay… if someone is full blown singing the song along with Drake, i’m kicking them out the car… with that being said, i don’t have one car mix cd with Best I ever Had on it… for good reason, as for Day N Nite, different story

    ^should have went with A KiD Named…

  45. KzA Says:

    crazycrazycrazy

    If your gonna compare Drake and CuDi, its bullshit to compare Drake’s R&B to CuDi’s rap.

    So in this discussion, we are speaking of Drake the rapper. Drake the rapper that is on Ransom, Congratulations, Presentation, Juice, Where to Now, Comeback Season, Closer, etc.

    CuDi has a very odd rap style but does make for real entertaining music. However, if I have to smoke 5 blunts just to enjoy some shit, its a BIT too damn spacey.

    Drake the rapper > CuDi the rapper

    Dead Serious, Let the bars speak for themselves. Half of CuDi’s shit is like spoken word…

  46. sleep AKA I'M 2 COOL 4 U DUDES 2 RIDICULE Says:

    has game ever had a song where he didnt name drop? i have his first 2 albums and he name drop on every song

  47. Ghost Writer Says:

    but Ill cop Man On The Moon (album) b4 i cop Thank Me Later

    ^this is one of the dumbest things i’ve seen posted here…so much so, that you should win some kind of award for it.

  52. see-you-and-set-it beef Says:

    if u copped the alife everybody hi jawnts, did you pop off the alife hang-tag

    i feel like if i leave it on, i get a little mid-90s shwag going. like when we used to cop the bulls chapaminship ((c) sexy-t) caps with the snap-back and we left the hologram tag on there. shit’s just fun

    but then on the other hand am i too grown to leave a hangtag on the shit. fyi a nicca 29 years old.

    the hangtag is a little red jawn on a little chain that say ALIFE on it

    Drake the rapper > CuDi the rapper

    ^no one is really disputing this, overall CuDi makes better music.

  54. Troyvul Says:

    Day N Nite played itself out of my books, it was cute at first then annoying. Still when I hear Best I ever had, I’ll bop my head..that beat is infectious

    Drake> Cudi…Hands Down

  55. KzA Says:

    Make yourself a damn tape of all of Drakes straight rapping songs if you can’t deal with the R&B. and if you say he can’t put together some serious bars, then go listen to Mr Solo Dolo and stare at the stars

    You got the wrong tape….I’ma Cudi fan but that mixtape is whack….you gotta listen to A Kid Name Cudi…..and it’s not lyrical so don’t expect to hear Jay Elec type of music…it’s more a zone out kinda vibe
