Big Boi pumps up social responsibility, OutKast in New York Times

Posted By on Mon, Sep 8, 2008 at 4:30 AM

The nation's economic funk has inspired a bit of uplifting funk from Big Boi.

He discussed his mission to balance bangin' beats and lyrics with social responsibility in the lead single, "Sumthin's Gotta Give" (featuring Mary J. Blige), from his solo album Sir Lucious Leftfoot ... Son of Chico Dusty, due in October.

Apparently, it echoes OutKast's legacy of inspiring grooves so much that Big had a hard time dropping the plural pronouns ("us," "we") when discussing his solo project:

“I keep saying ‘we,’ even though it’s a solo album. Me and Dre are like brothers, man. I’m putting this solo disc out, and then we’re going to come back with the next OutKast record.”
