Big Boi wrapping up solo album
Says 'Sir Luscious' is 'like a recession special'
"I'm shooting to finish the album by the end of August," Big Boi told Billboard.com.
The MC worked with his usual Organized Noise production crew as well as long-time collaborator, Mr. DJ. Big Boi's second single will be "The World is Too Big" featuring Mary J. Blige.
"This album is Big Boi to the extreme," Big Boi said. "It's like a recession special. I'm talking about what's going on in the world, with everything from rising gas prices to the election. It's just my insights on life up to this point."
Big Boi also shared that long-time Outkast video director, Bryan Barber, will helm the clip for "Royal Flush," which is slated to shoot soon. While Raekwon will be featured in the clip, Big Boi was unsure whether Andre 3000's schedule would allow him to join the video's cast.
Last month, Big Boi debuted his "Big" collaboration with the Atlanta Ballet at Georgia's Fox Theater. Now, the MC is in talks with AEG and Live Nation to take the show on an international tour.
