Big Boi Performs Live For Billboard Tastemakers (Video)


Following a live rooftop performance of “Shutterbug” for Billboard’s Tastemakers series, Big Boi tells how he came to work with Scott Storch on the song and his thoughts on ‘Tangerine’, ‘Night Night’ and ‘Hustle Blood’ as his next possible singles from current album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, with a number of accompanying visuals still in the works (“There’s probably 7 or 8 more to go”).

The Savannah, Georgia emcee also describes “You Ain’t No DJ” collaborator Yelawolf as “real emcee,” adding, “I’m a fan of true lyricists and he’s definitely one of the great ones that’s coming up right now,” and is focused on grooming Hip Hop/Rock/Alternative band Vonnegutt (who hold down the chorus on “Follow Us”) for success, as well as his own Son Of Chico Dusty world tour, bringing the critical success of his new album to vivid life.

Head over to Billboard to watch Big Boi’s additional two performances of “General Patton” and “Daddy Fat Sax.”
