Big Boi vs. Black Keys Mash-Up “The Brothers of Chico Dusty”

Big Boi & the Black Keys Mash-Up

While researching the new poll for your favorite album of 2010, I ran across this gem. This is an epic set of 8 songs that mash up Big Boi and the Black Keys. The quality of this set is reminiscent of DJ Danger Mouse’s Grey Album, which mashed up Jay-Z and the Beatles.

This set, which uses vocals from Big Boi’s “Sir Lucious Left Foot – The Son of Chico Dusty” was released by an unknown DJ named “Wick-It”. I don’t know about ya’ll, but I listened to Big Boi’s CD so much when it came out I can’t listen to it much anymore, I played it out… But this mash-up sounds fresh. It revitalizes the CD. Enjoy, and happy New Years!

Big Boi Rap Quotes

Yoooo! Here are some Big Boi quotes for all ya’ll. There aren’t too many quotes floating around out there for Big Boi, you’d think there’d be more? Some bonuses for ya’ll (since OutKast is one of my favorite groups out there):

Big Boi - Mixtape for Dummies

A pretty nifty mixtape with some old and nu skool Big Boi tracks on it:
Big Boi’s Mixtape for Dummies (137 megs)

The first ~20 tracks are classic Big Boi tracks, while a few of the later tracks sound like tracks that didn’t make the cut on Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty (read: unreleased Big Boi tracks).

And here’s the video for “Follow Us” with Vonnegutt:

One of my buddies, let’s call him Montizzle, lives in Savannah (SEA PORT!) and was at the club when they filmed the video. He found out about it through the buzz in Savannah about Big Boi’s new album and also since he frequents The Jinx (where it was filmed) every Thursday night to dance. He thought they would be filming the video earlier in the night, but when he got to the club around ten, they were getting set up for the video. They held everyone outside until Big Boi got there at 11ish. The scene was a lot of Savannah SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) kids, wasn’t too much of a Hip-Hop vibe there. When Big Boi and Vonnegutt had both arrived, they started playing the song… then again… then again ’til they got all the footage they needed for the video. When Montizzle heard the beat drop, he knew the album would be hot. The SCAD kids were even bouncing up and down for a Big Boi song!

Big Boi’s playing in the ATL with STS9 and the Disco Biscuits!

I’m there!

STS9 and The DISCO BISCUITS are nothing short of overwhelmingly stoked to announce what is sure to be the dirty south’s biggest weekend of the summer this coming August. STS9 and THE DISCO BISCUITS team up, with a supporting cast to be announced in the coming months, to perform at the famed VERIZON WIRELESS AMPHITHEATRE in Alpheretta, GA on SATURDAY AUGUST 28th.
Fri Aug 27 2010 and Sat Aug 28th

The lineup is Sound Tribe Sector 9, Big Boi, Mos Def, the Disco Biscuits, Big Gigantic and John Hughes.

You can only buy 2 and 3 day passes for the concerts, there are no one-day options. I can’t figure out what the difference between the 2 and 3 day passes is? The show’s only for a Friday and Saturday… hmmm… this will require more investigation.
