In these turbulent times, Americans of all races, creeds, and views on the the actual funniness of NBC’s Community must all come together in unity and a willingness to really, really get down. (Whether it’s “getting down” to business or booty-droppin’ beats, it’s all the same.) And who better to lead us out of our collective desire to bitchslap one another than Big Boi? I mean, this is the man who cowrote “Ms. Jackson,” a dance floor uniter if ever there was one.
And so, today the news that Big Boi’s second solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, has a new release date and Hendrix-y lookin’ kinda artwork comes like a breath of fresh air after too long on a dancefloor where the DJ just can’t mix songs. (There’s a metaphor for our national state in there somewhere but hey, let’s not beat this dead American horse over the head or whatever.) Originally slated for a November 13 release, America will now receive the gift of Big Boi on December 11 via Purple Ribbon/Def Jam. Big Boi for president 2014?
