Just in case you haven't been paying attention, the good Big Boi is prepping his sophomore album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. The ATL rap legend's new album isn't in stores until November 13th, but he's been performing in various spots to make sure people know at least one half of OutKast can still be readily found rocking a stage. Recently, the man born Antwan Patton hit the stage of the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco, California.
Big Boi was actually supposed to perform at Outside Lands last year, but there were some unforeseen circumstances that left his DJ owing him 80 stacks. 'My DJ Cutmaster Swiff, his computer...or whatever his equipment he has to play the music froze up. Mind you I gave this ni--a a budget to get three computers to have a back up and a back up to back up the back up. So he f-cked up about $80,000 cause we couldn't do the show. So, the ni--a paying it back, slowly but surely.'
It's all love with Swiff (who contends the show could have still gone on) and Daddy Fat Saxx, though. The latter does crack a joke about Swift eventually having to DJ for the "General Patton" rapper's kids, too.
Check out some photos of Big Boi handling his business in front of the crowd in the gallery and behind the scenes footage in the clip below.
Last Sunday, Team USA's Men's Basketball squad of elite NBA players took home the gold at the London Olympics by beating Spain. Besides earning shiny gold medals, the players were also laced with custom gold Beats By Dre headphones after their W. We saw LeBron James rocking his at afterparty that featured Swizz Beatz and Nas.
The custom heaphones are the Studio models and unfortunately you won't be able to ever find them in stores. The custom headphones were strictly made for Team USA so unless you were in London hooping with Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and the rest of team USA, you can only admire these from afar.
Nas' standout record on his incredible album, Life Is Good, is getting the visual treatment courtesy of Aristotle. The most talked about song, 'Bye Baby' which encapsulates the highs and lows of the marriage to his estranged wife, Kelis.
The song is produced by Salaam Remi and Noah '40' Shebib, and from what we can gather from these behind the scenes photos from BAM, this one looks like it will hit close to home.
This will be the fourth video off of Nas' album following 'The Don,' 'Nasty,' and 'Daughters.' Hit the jump and check out the behind the scenes photos for the video to 'Bye Baby.' Don't blow a good thing.
