Daily Dose Pick: Big Boi

Three years in the making, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty is a debut solo album that makes Outkast’s less flamboyant half the one worth watching.

Label issues prevented Big Boi’s partner in rhyme, André 3000, from making any vocal appearances on the album, but they didn’t keep away other A-listers like T.I., B.o.B, George Clinton, and Janelle Monáe. Even with all that talent on board, though, Big Boi lives up to the moniker of album track “General Patton,” leading the pack and commanding every beat with authority, finesse, and charm.
