Big Boi keeps it cool, even in the heat of Austin, Tex.

Posted By on Tue, Aug 14, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Last week, we got a sneak peek of Big Boi's forthcoming LP Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors thanks to footage of his Austin, Tex. surprise performance of "Mama Told Me" with Swedish electro-soul collaborators Little Dragon. This week, Big takes us behind-the-scenes of that performance as he lands in Austin, preps for the show at soundcheck, checks into the W, and rides around gettin it.

From the sound of the snippets playing in the background, the album's going to be more of Big's trademark funk, with a all-too-timely theme/title track. But the highlight comes around the two-minute mark when Big feigns receiving a phone call from Prez Obama and, being too busy with boss shit at the moment, responds with a "tell him I'ma call his ass back, ya feel me." Somebody give this man a reality show already.
