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.

outkast southernplayalisticadillacmuzik album cover

On this day, back in 1994, Outkast's debut album, Southernplayalisitcadillacmuzik came out. To celebrate, we're cutting the price of the album in half until tomorrow night.

To get the discount, just visit the Official Outkast Online Store and enter the promo code 'SOUTHERN50' at checkout.

This is the album that started this whole movement. Go buy another copy for yourself (cuz you know your copy is CHEWED UP by now) or better yet, buy a copy and use it to deputize a new fan. Give it to your kids, your grandkids, your grandma, your co-workers, your momma, your dad, the police, the dude at the corner store, your doctor, your priest, your rabbi. Doesn't matter. We're all kings today.

This solidified ya'll for me. I loved the song "Players Ball", but to make an entire album that jams is what made me a true Outkast fan and not just a fan of Outkast's songs. The Intro was one of my favorite's, I always sing it--You may die. I like Jezzebel too.

Impose Magazine Asks What Are You Getting Your Mom for 420

Check out this video featuring Big Boi (and a ton of other artists) talking about what they got their moms for 4/20...whatever that is.

Big Boi Be Still Screen Shot

The video for "Be Still" just premiered, and its just as surreal and amazing as the track itself. Check it out over at Big Boi's site now!

I totally agree, outkast has also gotta bring out an album we dont want another dr Dre story.

Looks like Big Boi will be making an appearance in Morgan Spurlock's upcoming documentary "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold". The doc looks to be about product placement in films - and it will be entirely funded by product placement.

Most likely, Morgan will be talking to Big about his partnership with Crown Royal Black, but more importantly, we'll get to hear him weigh in on the lines between corporate interests and "Art". Check out the trailer. Daddy Fat Saxxx appears at around 1:55.

Big Boi Live at SXSW

At an exclusive SXSW Foursquare event, Big did an interview where among many other things, he announced a group album comprised of him, Mike Bigga (ex-Killer Mike) and Pill, of "Trap Goin' Ham" fame, (seriously, have you seen the video for that track?) the group doesn't have a name yet, but the name is secondary to all that talent.

Check out Big Boi's interview from SXSW right here.

Id love to see some of their massive back catalog of vinyl releases made available.
