In a Q&A with British GQ, Big Boi opened up about his latest ventures — his forthcoming third solo album, his foray into his own line of designer socks, as well as the status of the long awaited reunion of Outkast.
Your pink and green socks tonight were particularly special…
I’m the sock king! They’ve got a cape on the back – that’s how I flew here. I got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles. Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta Georgia, 30318 and get some!
How’s your second solo album coming along?
It’s coming good, I just put out two records from it – “She Said OK” with Theophilus London and “Gossip” with UGK and Big K.R.I.T. The fans are excited. On the new album I’ve got Kid Cudi and Little Dragon. I just did a cut with A$AP Rocky the other night too, so it’s action-packed.
In “Gossip”, Pimp C, who died in 2007, makes an appearance…
I had the verse for years. It was on another un-released record that I had from Organized Noize and it just matched up perfectly. I was already getting Bun B on there and just to put Pimp C on there made it turn out great.
Would you consider a Pimp C hologram á la Tupac?
I don’t know. We’re trying to figure it out right now how we’re going to do the video. We’re going to do something creative. That Tupac hologram was spooky… but dope.
Finally any more news on OutKast’s new project? You said Andre is releasing his solo album soon after yours?
He’s supposed to. You got to talk to him, that boy changes his mind so much I can’t even speak on that no more!
