Big Boi Talks Dungeon Family Projects,

With an upcoming solo album, Big Boi says the Dungeon Family also plans to release four years worth of recorded material.

During a conference call with Best of Both Offices, recent Def Jam signee, Big Boi revealed that the nine-year wait since an official Dungeon Family compilation may be ending in 2010.

“The whole Dungeon Family thing is in full effect,” Big Boi offered. “The family is out here working in Dungeon East, Dre is working on his solo record, and I’ve been at Stankonia recording like a monster.  We’ve got so much music, and we’re gonna unleash it on the world starting this year. I just heard about 10 or 11 songs. My boy Ray [Murray] from Organized Noize just came through and played some stuff with Big Rube and Cool Breeze on it.”

In the meantime, Big Boi has been has been finishing his contribution to the Dungeon Family catalogue in the form of his solo album, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty. In addition to the single “Shutterbugg,” which Big Boi says Scott Storch “was sitting on for a couple years” especially for him, Big Boi plans to slightly update his formula to fit Hip Hop’s more digital approach.

“A month before the album, we’re gonna give y’all an in-depth look at how me made it,” Big Boi explained. “We might do them twice a week…one on Monday and another one Friday. That gives people a chance to see real, everyday life—from hitting the studio and making the album, to getting on this chitlin’ circuit and doing shows.”

Big Boi also fielded questions during the conference call, and took some time to explain why there have been so many delays in getting a firm release date for his project.

“LaFace got moved over to Jive with the whole merger four or five years ago,” he explained. “I had been over there jivin’ and having a lot of creative differences. What brought it all to a head is when they asked me to go in and make my own verse to Lil Wayne’s ‘Lollipop.’ At that point, I kinda knew that they didn’t understand what was going on.”

Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty is currently scheduled for a July 6, and will available in both a standard retail version with 14 songs as well as a deluxe version with 18 tracks. B.o.B, Andre 3000, Gucci Mane, T.I. and Jamie Foxx and others all have guest appearances.

    HELL YEAH OUTKAST IS GREATEST RAP GROUP EVER!!

  • Jerz300

    Outkast is the greatest Hip-Hop group of all time. Followed by Run-DMC and The Lunch Break.

    You know, Outkast/Goodie MoB is perhaps the only rap act(s) out of Atlanta that truly made sense to me. I mean, I'm from St. Louis and shit, but whenever i hear anything from the Dungeon Family, I get a true sense of what Atlanta rap is supposed to sound like (No disrespect to Tip, Jeezy, Luda, ect.). And furthermore, I can feel the Atlanta experience through their music even though I haven't spent one day there in my life. Now as far as Big Boi doin his joint, yeah, I'm anticipating it crazily like everyone else (given the circumstances of this bullshit rap scene today), But I'm particularly more in- terested in what 3 stacks is cookin' up, man. Nonetheless though, I can only hope for two things: (1) it blows my mind to bits and (2) IT DOESN'T GET PUSHED THE FUCK BACK!!! Ain't y'all tired of that shit???

    Dear Jeff Mullis this is my letter asking the Outkast be put in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, I was wondering all the accolads that they have why havent they been inducted in the Music Hall of Fame, the Group Outkast has been the very foundation of Urban Hip-Hop in Georgia. Thi is an online application asking that they be inducted, its is only fair. Sincerely Me

    why is outkast not mentioned more often as great artists?? the shit they put out is so damn creative/original (yet dope).. i may be missin something but hasnt outkast been holdin down the south for 15+ years??

    • Cam283

      Yeah what are you talking about? Everyone gives outkast props. Who has anything bad to say about them? They are talented.

    • stevep

      yea man i think they do though, im pretty sure they are universally recognized as the GOAT group (no disrespect to the WU!)or at least 99% of the time in the convo...for someone to be working at a label and seriously ask big boi to imitate a lil wayne record is fucking blasphemy!

  • moh112

    Cool Breeze! I loved his East Point's Greatest Hits album. Fuck that Calhouns shit they put out though.
