Big Boi recently gave an update on his forthcoming solo LP and how Andre 3000 is chipping in:
There's no format, really, to follow once you start recording," Big said of constructing his solo LP Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. "To me, my album is like building a house. I work on all the songs at the same time. I might jump from song to song all throughout the time I'm makin' the album. I've always been like that. It just works out. Right now, we're just putting the sod in the front of the house. We almost done."
"[Andre 3000] has a couple beats for me, but right now he's in Japan working on his clothing line. So when he gets back, if time permits, we'll get on that," Big said of having more contributions from his partner on the album. "But we gonna record those songs anyway. He's done more than enough that's needed right now.
"For so many years, the press just really couldn't get a hold on what they wanted to say [about Outkast]," Big continued. " 'How are these boys makin' this good-ass music, and they still together after 15 years?' So they created some hype like, 'Outkast is breaking up.' Which is not the case. Now nobody's saying that. We done 'Royal Flush,' 'Da Art of Storytellin', Pt. 4.' [If] you kinda mastered your craft and got what you wanted, you can branch off and do different things. This is like breathing to us; [it's] what we do. So all the hype and 'Outkast is breaking up' â€” all that is silenced right now."
Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is due out later this summer.
