Recently, we caught up with Big Boi (real name Antwan André Patton), after listening to his new album (Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors) @ DTLR’s listening session in Washington, DC. We asked him five simple questions. Check ’em out.
1. In one sentence, describe how a fan will feel after listening to the new album?
Big Boi: I just want them to enjoy the ride. It’s like an hour and 7 minutes worth of music, 17 songs on the deluxe. I’m having fun doing what I love doing and as long as they keep appreciating the music.I keep supplying it to them.
Big Boi: All of them really. Being in a group with a partner, sharing the writing responsibilities but writing all the songs yourself is challenging. I accepted the challenge and it turned out good.
Big Boi: That’s a hard one. Really nothing, because it’s not like these are people you see everyday so when I get asked a question, i answer it accordingly.
Big Boi: It has to be something added to it, like I would do something about my dogs something like that but not just people following me, trying to see how rich I am and where I live at…
Big Boi: She bad man. She look better than all these R &B singers, she looks better than all these hoes ….And everybody knows that, my wife is bad.
6. Favorite scripture or motto.
Big Boi: ‘Each one, teach one’. Fa sho.
