BIG BOI is packing heaters much deeper than SHUTTERBUGG

lucious leftfoot’s got his best foot forward darling lord have mercy how them flows stay so cold

♫ Big Boi – Shutterbugg (Ft. Cutty)

Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty has been years in the making, and highly anticipated for even longer. It’s finally out and there is not much to say here. This is it. This is how hip-hop is done. If you have ever enjoyed a jam by either half of Outkast, solo or together, then this is your album. Big Boi is dripping with flow as he tears through verse after of verse of solid lyrics, wrapping them in the funkiest, freshest beats you’ve heard all year. Guest stars abound, funny rhymes at every turn, the sketches are short and weet, and it’s danceability is unquestionable. I’ve already posted twice on tracks from this album so this will serve as a brief confirmation of what we all knew would happen. Big Boi may have taken his sweet ass time (label problems didn’t help) but the final product more than justifies every second of waiting.

♫ Big Boi – Shine Blockas [ft. Gucci Mane] (previously posted)

We already know how much I love “Shine Blockas,” and now “Daddy Fat Sax” and “Turns Me On” are climbing the ranks as album highlights. Damn, now that I have typed that it doesn’t feel right. The album is playing in the background and as one tracks flows to the next I am having a hard time pinpointing any low points in the mix. Even slow jam “Hustle Blood” featuring easy-target Jamie Foxx is smooth as fuck and heats up the room at least 3 degrees. Anyway, quit reading this baloney and get this album. Highly recommended for fans of music, hip-hop or not. (And don’t forget to grab this non-album gem featuring Andree 3000. Hells yeah.)
