INTERVIEW: Big Boi's (@BigBoi) 25 Favorite Albums?

Big Boi's 25 Favorite Albums 

 

Big Boi is one cool dude. There's no denying that. When he came in the game as one-half of legendary rap group Outkast in the early '90s, we all took notice of his style. There was something slick about him that went beyond the brilliance of his bars. Maybe it was his precise pronunciation, or the slight tilt of his brim. Regardless, he was just that cat. Straight up and down.

Almost two decades later, Big Boi is now killing it as a solo artist, most recently with the release of his second official solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. And just as he did on his last solo effort, and throughout the untouchable Outkast catalog, he displays his wide range of musical influences song after song.

We got on the horn with Daddy Fat Sacks right before the holidays to find out exactly what jams he listens to in order to inspire such an eclectic sound. He broke down his 25 favorite albums for us, which includes LPs by his top two artists of all time, Kate Bush and Bob Marley, hip-hop joints by everyone from 2 Live Crew to Mobb Deep, a fair share of rock and soul, and a healthy sprinkling of his own personal flavor, too.

This is not your average, run-of-the-mill list of faves, but that was to be expected. Dig it.
