Song Of The Day: 3/8/12 (#2. Big Boi) (Shutterbugg)

So if you know anything about me, even just from what you’ve learned about me from this very blog, since I started it 2 months ago, it’s what 2 rappers were/are coming next. First, my #2 favorite Rapper of all time is Big Boi from OutKast. The song of his that I chose to share for song of the day is “Shutterbugg” from his only true solo album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty”. Although “Chico Dusty” is his only true solo album, he has made 6 albums with OutKast one of which, the Grammy for Album of the Year winning “Speakerboxx” is technically a solo album. He has been rapping for about 20 years now and he has proven himself to be not only one of the most consistent, creative and experimental Rappers ever, but musical artist, in general, regardless of genre.  “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” is my most listened to album of the last 3 and a half years, according to the tracking of my music listens, last.fm has done in that time period. He is currently working on a follow up to “Chico Dusty” called “Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader”. The album is slated to come out this year, but keep your fingers crossed because Big Boi and his partner in rhyme Andre 3000 are notorious for pushing back or having their albums pushed back. “Chico Dusty” was slated to come out for about 3 years before it actually came out, due largely to alleged record label politics. I pray that this does not happen to “Daddy Fat Sax”. While we wait for the return of the Soul Funk Crusader enjoy “Shutterbugg”.
