The Brothers of Chico Dusty: Big Boi x The Black Keys Mash-Up

By | 17 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=156631"> Two of the year's best albums - Big Boi's Sir Luscious... and The Black Keys' Brothers - mashed and thrown together? As twisted as the idea sounds, turntabilist <a href="http://www.myspace.com/instigatormusic">Wick-It's</a> ballsy concoction yields pretty surprising results as Antwan Patton sounds like a lost Keys' band member.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/big-boi-talks-sir-lucious-leftfoot-videos-and-jamie-foxx"> Picture By Charlie McCullers As you probably know by now, the road to Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty was of the blistering variety. The kind of trail that literally takes years to endure on the trek and will have you feet ready to crumble from the wear-n-tear. Over two years ago, we reported on <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2008/04/sir-lucious-left-foot-leads-the-way">Big Boi's arrival</a> in the most unlikely circuits: the ballet.

“Hustle Blood” – Review Of Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

By | 55 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/big-boi-feat-vonnegutt-follow-us-video"> Even though Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty marks the first time Big Boi has released an album under his own moniker, the supposed debutant comes into this project with nothing left to prove. He’s already been crowned Hip-Hop royalty as one half of the greatest duo in the movement’s history. The ease that comes with assumed greatness shows. Freed from any burden of proof, Daddy Fat Sacks delivers a collection of well-crafted, rump-shaking Hip-Hop jams that honor his legacy as a Southern original. Many of the best tracks have been in people’s headphones for months, as so often happens in these days of record label stratagem and Rapidshare (witness “<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/big-boi-feat-gucci-mane-shine-blockas-video">Shine Blockas</a>” place on many Best of 2009 lists.

The King Henry Skit

By | 10 Comments

<a href="http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/648a377863/big-boi-presents-king-henry"> Sir Lucious'... "King Henry" skit may be one of the funniest album breaks that I've heard in a while and Henry and Keisha speaking in Georgia dialect = comedic gold that I always end up rewinding when I hear it. In fact, it almost ranks up there with alongside other Outkast skits like "<a href="http://s0.ilike.com/play#Outkast:Flim+Flam+%28Interlude%29:23682:s28399988.8115316.1783986.0.2.168%2Cstd_78fd77b3eed2439b8d923ce281a609cf">Flim Flam</a>.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/listen-to-big-bois-sir-lucious-left-foot-album-on-myspace"> As soon as I turned the ignition yesterday morning, "Follow Us" came blaring through the speakers but I didn't even bother to turn it down. In fact, I let it replay three times before reaching my destination. Perfect timing for the video to drop, at least for moi. As an aside, Purple Ribbon's <a href="http://www.myspace.com/vonnegutt">Vonnegutt</a> just got added to the bill for when <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/tss-will-be-in-chicago-andwere-bringin-yelawolf-with-us">we (and YelaWolf)</a> come to the Chi in a couple of weeks.
