Big Boi: Sir Lucious Left Foot... The Son Of Chico Dusty
Buy! - (Def Jam)
As one-half of the Atlanta duo Outkast, Big Boi has made some of hip hop’s most celebrated records. He steps out on his own here for an album that deserves to be mentioned with Stankonia, Aquemini and ATLiens as a hip hop classic, balancing a wide-ranging musical adventurousness with his earthy street attitude while coloring the whole proceedings with Outkast’s playful P-Funk sensibility. The production is first-rate – modern, even forward-looking, but also gutbucket funky. While plenty of special guests also contribute, Big Boi rightfully remains the focus, with his twitchy, agile rap style and complex, densely packed rhyme schemes delivered with lots of irreverent, often lascivious humor. Sir Lucious Leftfoot is an inventive, fun and stone-cold funky hip hop masterpiece. 7/8/2010 - Don Yates
