I find it hard to believe that the drum beat for Matt & Kim’s “Cameras” wasn’t made for Big Boi’s “Shutterbug” vocals in the first place. This works a little too well (plus shutterbug, cameras..nice). The track was remixed by producer Ruwanga Samath (Ru) for the Greatest Movie Ever Sold soundtrack. Premiere (+ mashup pic) [...]
The only way to get this year’s playlist up later than I did last year was to do it on NYE. Luckily, I kept a running list through-out 2010 that ended up with about 100 songs on it (too many!), and had to ax a lot of favorites. So, if the below 60 song playlist [...]

After 4 years of doing year end Top 10 Album lists, I’ve finally realized how insufficient it is in accurately showcasing my favorites from the year. it’s been a pleasure not having to slim my list down to only 10 records, because that is dumb. 21 seemed like a nice round number that complimented the [...]

Keeping these two apart really is a crime. “Lookin’ For Ya” originally appeared earlier this summer as one of the phenomenal non-album tracks that Big Boi recorded with Andre 3000 for Son of Chico Dusty that Jive blocked from seeing daylight. But not really, because internet (major labels, meet internet). Revised version of the track [...]
Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty, lyrical Darth Vader.
Big Boi pops his Pitchfork cherry in the above performance of “Shutterbug” (Best of 2010 1/2 pingback) live from last weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago’s Union Park. More festival videos including LCD Soundsystem, Liars, and Here We Go Magic at P4K TV.
I’m well aware that the halfway mark of a year occurs at the end of June. However, it’s only July 23. Calm down! I don’t usually do my Best Songs of the Year in this format (I prefer less stressful, unnumbered playlists), but I felt compelled on my flight to NY last week to put [...]

Ever since Big Boi’s Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty saw daylight last week (finally), I’ve been singing “shake it like a tambourine” all over my apartment, at the supermarket, to inanimate objects. I’ve been singing it while brushing my teeth, doing the dishes, updating my Twitter, at the beach, at In-N-Out, [...]
Big Boi once promised a young Jedi that his new album was coming ‘very soon’ (am I still talking about that? Yes). ‘Very soon’ has quickly turned into very soon (July 6), but you can stream Big Boi’s long-awaited Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty right now on his Myspace. I will [...]
Above, “General Patton”, the latest leak from Big Boi’s upcoming, Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty. Pretty sure this caused the Earthquake last night. July 6.
