Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty (2010)

Big Boi is the other half of successful hip hop duo Outkast, also he's a producer, actor and he works with his own thing.

In this LP Big Boi is Sir Licious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.

This LP took years to finally get released, after legal dispute, a lot of producers and years on making (since 2007) finally the album debuted number 3 on Billboard and it has been one of the biggest hip hop records of the year, not only because of the anticipation and the fact that everything that Big Boi or Andre 3000 touch turns to gold, but because this guy really knows what he does when it comes to creating beats.

After listening to this LP I can say that Andre 3000 is as great or maybe less great than Big Boi, and this is his shout to declare his supremacy, if Outkast explored old funky 70's sounds, this LP moves a decade forward with an 80's synth-funk going on that is really refreshing.

Big Boi is using all the instruments and electronic stuff that everyone else is using, but he's not committed to the way things are, so he takes his own vision of the beats and how to use them, so this is a Big Boi version on what is today's trend, and this creates a new trend.

The collaborations here are impressive like any other heavy weight hip hop record, it has everything that anyone can expect and goes a little bit further not compromising with the traditional way of making a hip hop album and also not trying to complain about it. Pitchfork said "Sir Lucious Left Foot is an album blissfully free of both old-man hectoring and drug-rap nihilism", and it's fun to see this refreshing view of hip hop being popular.
