Exploring his wildest ambitions
2012 | Label: Def Jam Records

“If ya’ll don’t know me by now, ya’ll ain’t never gonna know me,” Big Boi sighs at the opening of his bold new album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Dude’s got a point: While most everyone remains fixated on when, and if, the Atlanta MC will ever reunite with his erstwhile, Gillette razor-hawking Outkast partner, Andre 3000, Big Boi continues to quietly prove himself one of the game’s fiercest and most inventive artists on his… read more »

When I first saw the tracklist for this album I got excited for it, it's rare you find a good hip hop album with such an eclectic group of artists, but after listening to it I found it disappointing. Shoes for Running is a good song and my favorite track, but mostly because of Wavves. Mama Told Me and Lines are 2 other good songs, but other than on She Hates Me Big Boi doesn't lyrically deliver. I thought the collab with Phantogram would lead to something better. Phantogram's modern, psych pop sound like in As Far As I Can See or When I'm Small with hip-hop/rap would be a very interesting sound, but instead Sarah Barthel is mostly used for female vocals, she can sing, but not her best strength. I don't get the intro/outro. Ascending and Descending just don't fit into the album, not that they're songs, your first impulsive is to hit skip. Using Little Dragon as only background sound is barely anything special. Missed the mark, interesting concept, some good songs, but noting exciting.

seriously good

Seriously good. The best thing he's done since Speakerboxx, for sure. So far, Apple Of My Eye, CPU and Shoes For Running are standing out, but the whole thing is great.

Jukebox Jury: Big Boi

By Christina Lee, Contributor

Inside his own Stankonia Studios on November 27, Big Boi sat on a stool onstage, nodding furiously to "Descending" – the ambient conclusion to second solo album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Suddenly, one of his band members picked up and started playing his electric guitar. A drum beat started, then another joined in. Big Boi jumped up from his stool, grabbed the microphone and launched into his verse off Stankonia's explosive "B.O.B." As he entered… more »

What You Talkin’ About Willis?: The Art And Madness of Gemini and Wesley Willis

By Robert Phoenix, Contributor

There is something inherently schizo about the Gemini. A quick scan of Gemini artists proves at least two stereotypes correct: one, that they often have multiple personas, and two, they generally need others to extract and then enact those personas. Consider Andre 3000, who is always whipping up some new self via fashion, or Prince, who's first a man, then a symbol, then man again, and whose attention span is almost - but not quite… more »
