Big Boi redefines 'CPU' with Phantogram and Sade

Posted By on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Since 2010's release of Sir Luscious Left Foot, The Son of Chico Dusty, Big Boi's choice of collaborators has grown more and more intriguing; working with indie rock and pop bands like Modest Mouse, Little Dragon, and Wavves. As the world is buzzing about the long awaited OutKast reunion tour (40+ festival dates worldwide), Big Boi has re-released a track off of his 2012 solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, released on Purple Ribbon Records and Def Jam Recordings.
"CPU 2.0 (Dungeoneze Remix)" features production work from Phantogram mixed with Sade's "Nothing Can Come Between Us," along Big Boi's solo work and verses from throughout OutKast's discography. The original beat on "CPU," had a dark, menacing tone with Dungeon Family written all over it. The newer version is an earthy, funked-out, and more carefree tune.

Revolt TV recently reported that Andre 3000 and Big Boi are both working on solo material that could be released sometime in 2014 despite the Outkast tour this summer. Regardless, it's safe to say we'll be hearing a lot more from the ATLiens all year long.

In the meantime, watch the visual for Big Boi, Phantogram, and Sade doing "CPU 2.0" (Dungeoneze Rmx), produced by Trevor Kane and Big Boi's in-house digital team.
