Outkast's Big Boi Shares New Album 'Boomiverse' Ft. Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Killer Mike & More

Big Boi, one-half of the legendary duo Outkast, has just released his third solo album today. Boomiverse is his first album in five years since 2012's excellent Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. While that album brought indie collaborations and experimental production, his newest goes back to his Atlanta roots with a more traditional southern hip-hop style. 

He recruited tons of collaborators for the album, including Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Killer Mike, Jeezy and more. Most of the songs feature verses with aggressive delivery, which are juxtaposed by radio-friendly choruses. While Andre 3k is unfortunately nowhere on the album, Big Boi holds his own and continues to prove that he may be underrated but should not be overlooked. Enjoy!

Big Boi Links With Run The Jewels On Danger Mouse's New Single "Chase Me"

Big Boi Run The Jewels

Legendary hip-hop producer Danger Mouse has brought Run the Jewels back together with Outkast's Big Boi for a brand-new track. "Chase Me" will be featured on the soundtrack for Baby Driver, the upcoming film from the director of Shaun of the Dead, Edgar Wright.

Big Boi, Killer Mike, and El-P previously collaborated on Run the Jewels' "Banana Clipper" from the group's debut album, and this new song picks up right where they left off. Danger Mouse lays down a guitar-driven beat that sounds somewhere between his work with Gnarls Barkley and his production on A$AP Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP. El-P comes out of the gate with an urgent first verse showcasing his lyrical prowess before Killer Mike brings his signature flow and clever wordplay to the track after the chorus. Big Boi closes out the song and continues to prove why he is one of the best rappers in hip-hop after 23 years of doing this. 

The soundtrack to the movie will be released June 23rd on Danger Mouse's 30th Century Records, and you can see the new film starring Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx on June 28th. If this song is any indication of the quality of the movie, we'll be out seeing that opening day. Enjoy!

Listen To Big Boi's New Collab 'Kill Jill' With Killer Mike and Jeezy Off Upcoming Album

Big Boi Killer Mike

Big Boi announced a new album on Instagram yesterday, and has shared with us the first preview from his third solo album, entitled Boomiverse. The first of two singles, "Kill Jill," taps fellow Atlanta rappers Killer Mike and Jeezy for a hard-hitting southern banger.

While the song won't officially be released until tonight, the snippet reassures us that we'll get a reliable Jeezy chorus to go with Big Boi's baritone raps. The trap drums combined with a chopped-up vocal sample sounds like it will be the perfect soundtrack for these three lyrical rappers to shine on. Check out the Apple Music preview below, and look out for an update with the full track later tonight. Enjoy!
