Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

Big Boi Confirms Future Of Outkast, Announces Sydney Show

One half of Outkast, Big Boi, is a few months into the life of his solo record, ‘Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son Of Chico Dusty’, when he made an early morning phone call to Undercover’s Tim Cashmere.

With the uncertainty as to the future of Outkast, it’s only best that we clear that up first.

“[Andre 3000 and I] cut a couple of songs that were supposed to be on the album [‘Sir Lucious Leftfoot’], one being ‘Royal Flush’ and another one being ‘Looking For You’ and due to labels, they weren’t able to make it on the record, but as a producer they couldn’t tell, so he still appeared as a producer and you know, that’s my partner so any input that he had is definitely welcome.

“The plan is after Dre drops his record, then we’re gonna do the Outkast record, so that’s the plan for now,” so fans can rest easy.

Boi isn’t one to sit back and relax though, he has already begun working on the next record.

“I keep recording. I started my tour about three months ago, the ‘Son Of Chico Dusty’ tour and in between times I’ve still been recording, so I’m still like six songs deep into it.”

“For the most part it’s about just recording and putting ideas down and then you just revisit them as you’re recording them. I’m switching around constantly, I don’t just work on one song, the whole time I am switching around songs.”

The new album already has a name too, ‘Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader’.

Before we get too far off into the future, we should mention that he is planning a one-off show in Sydney this coming November.

The show isn’t just to promote himself, but it’s also a part of a car show and hip hop concert put on to promote EA Sports new video game ‘Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit’.

The show will take place at the Hordern Pavilion on November 18. For ticketing information, head to
