In a recent interview with MTV, Big Boi explained the nature of that Modest Mouse collaboration we mentioned below. Here is his explanation, sounds like a great way to make a record. Get the rest of the story at Stereogum.
[Modest Mouse frontman] Isaac [Brock] and I were talking about our lives, different backgrounds, how he grew up, talking about music, different songs. He gave me backstories on different songs they did, like ‘Wild Pack of Family Dogs,’ gave me stories on that. It was a real chill atmosphere, so it was basically just kicking it around the studio, just chopping it up. We was in here doing 14-hour days. …It was all day long. We’d jam, we’d talk, we’d jam some more. It was a real cool experience.
