Listeners can judge Big Boi without juxtaposing his album next to Andre 3000's. It's the audio equivalent of seeing Scottie thrive in the triangle offense while Jordan was chasing fly balls in the minors and realizing just how good Pip was on his own.

It’s hard to find an artist in any genre of music who has been in the game for 16 years and has sold over 15 million albums being doubted. But in some respects, that was the position Outkast's Big Boi found himself in during 2009, when plans to release his solo album stalled for the second consecutive year. Andre and Big Boi's combined track record speaks for itself. But if you subtract Speakerboxxx/The Love Below from the equation, Big Boi and André's respective solo resumés only consist of a handful of acting roles, a few compilations and the polarizing Idlewild soundtrack.

In the seven years since Speakerboxxx/The Love Below dropped and subsequently sold over 11 million copies, the two men who some claim have become Hip Hop’s greatest duo have sold pitbulls, clothes and a few movie tickets—almost everything except for another proper Outkast album.

We likely won’t see another group offering until 2011, but Big Boi gladly picks up where Speakerboxxx left off, vacillating between a shit-talking B-boy, social commentary spitting vet and a ladies man with a wandering eye. Tracks such as “Turns Me On” and “Tangerine” could easily have been substituted for 2003’s “The Way You Move,” which is certainly not a bad thing. The Dungeon Family’s trademark, thick 808-driven basslines are complemented by live instrumentation and vocalists who accent the songs without pandering to Top 40 radio, showing that Big Boi has managed to pull of the difficult task of finding a winning formula without becoming formulaic.

Obviously aware of his legacy and still more than willing to compete and collaborate with his peers, Big avoids the pitfall so many emcees fall into of compartmentalizing any of the album’s topics into one song. With 2008’s “Somethin’s Gotta Give” essentially serving as a mulligan, there’s no one “club song” or heavy-handed “this is me being socially conscious” offering. On “Follow Us,” he runs the gamut of all the album’s topics in less than eight bars, saying, “I know some of y’all done wrote a nigga off/ Like the leases on these cars and these homes you think is bought / Stay then / With so many bosses why are they still layin’ niggas off their job / Nigga for real / Go on give a nigga a gig then / Help a brother get up out this pigpen / But nobody wants to keep it pimpin’ or a hundred and ten / So with this pen / I illustrate from within...”

Aside from showcasing his underrated, nimble flow, Sir Lucious Leftfoot’s best quality is the way in which guests are seamlessly added in without overshadowing Big Boi. Hearing the underrated half of Outkast next to newcomers like B.o.B and Yelawolf is a reminder of his ear for finding emerging talent. After all, Big Boi has been instrumental in the careers of artists like Killer Mike, Janelle Monae, Slimm Calhoun and Vonnegutt. While a glance at the liner notes will tell you all but three tracks have guest features, the reality is that Big more or less holds things down himself on half of the album by relegating guests to choruses.


Given his success at melding the modern Rap aesthetic with the blueprint laid by the O.G.’s such as Too Short, UGK and 2 Live Crew he namechecks, Sir Lucious Leftfoot is essentially a successful exercise in contradiction. He does everything the unimaginative rappers he takes to task do—making songs about chasing ass, custom ringtones (“Theme Song”) and even has the much-maligned Gucci Mane on his album (“Shine Blockas”). The difference is that Big Boi sounds great by putting a new spin on all of the above, so why nitpick? This time around listeners can judge Big Boi without juxtaposing his album right next to Andre 3000’s. It’s the audio equivalent of seeing Scottie Pippen thrive in the triangle offense while Michael Jordan was chasing flyballs in the minor leagues and realizing just how good Pip was on his own. Big Boi flying solo isn’t as good as an Outkast album, but it serves as a great appetizer until the next one comes along. Moreover, when 2011 arrives, we’ll likely look back at this as one of the year’s best offerings.

    • Truth!

  • MightyMike27

    Good album, not as great as everyone's making it seem but I guess everyone just expected it to suck. Like I did... But it's not that bad, gotta love Big Boi's flow

  • THE REAL#1STAN

    Googoo24 is still a faggot

  • nyy6

    This album should not get less than a 4/5 from anybody. Its impossible to rate it less. Even helen keller would feels this

  • Aaron

    i love the way outkast is doin it just like wu tang clan does each member releases a solo album then do a group album but as for this album in particular its borderline flawless he has a mainstream feel but old school lyrics congratulations and thank you big boi for best rap album no best album of the year so far

  • Mattweezy

    An incredibly fresh album with no real flaws...speakerboxx?? Wats that after hearing this!

  • 2dope

    i agree wit steve1 eminem is my favorite but this album is album of the year so far..

  • Jonan

    I'm really enjoying this album, Big Boi did a great job. Beat-wise it's amazing and Big Boi flows over them so well. 2010 Hip Hop has had some really good releases: Sir Lucious, Distant Relatives, How I Got Over, Revolutions Per Minute, Recovery, In Search Of Stoney Jackson and even albums such The Adventures of Bobby Ray and Wu-Massacre.

  • Steve1

    I bought this album and i must say its pretty damn good. On another note Em's a great artist and so are the members of outkast You people need to grow the fuck up and respect the man's music. This album is better then Recovery because of the will to push limits and go against the grain. I bought every em album ever made and i can say this without bias. Em is an amazing lyricist and has been one of the best Emcees out forever but this album is better hands down. People have been underrating Big Boi for awhile. I press play on this CD and find myself keeping songs on repeat. Everyone else hating can "eat a bag a baby dicks" - Nuff Said

    • FerociousLionsOrg

      its tough to compare Em's to this, its so different. Em has his own style and Recovery was straight fire. This on the other hand is so insane with the different types of style which is also fire. I do however like this slightly over Recovery cause of the unique sound.

    • Mattweezy

      Yea this is the 2nd best album only to NAS & DAMIAN

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      look at this motha fucka talkn bout baby dicks...you fuckin low life pedophile

  • ..........lllllllllll

    pretty good album but wont go platinum or anything but the album is great sad that it wont get recognize like the roots or other albums like nas and Marley's

  • ATL Finest

    Jus Got tha album frm beginning to end fire its the album of the year so far...

    • vil johnson

      Enough already bout dope hoes n fux da police Big Boi album iz dat deal. I will give it 4 of 5 stars. It covers hip hop, pop, and r&b. It also provide comic relief, yall go out and get da album, its real "GROWN FOLKS MUZIK."

  • dmfslimm

  • Rickoo

    Great album, just great!

  • JOE6PACKNC336GBORO

    CD hot from start to finish well worth the money hustle blood should be the next single

  • QBKinG

    Big Boi shows that he can do it without Andre 3000...Album of the year candidate for sure!!

  • Shad Roc

    just imagine what the 3000 solo album n the nxt outkast album will sound like if this is this good

  • kennyken

    it gets greater as it gets later! those are the best albums; the ones that start off light-hearted and nice and then as they get farther into it, the album deepens and darkens right before your eyes. great album.

  • DF4LIFE

    Being from North Florida, I have grown up on Outkast. All the dissing of this group is unheard of. They are one of the greatest groups in Hip Hop EVER!!! And its funny I read a comment about the horrible albums that they made in the 2000s.....Speakerboxx/The Love Below won a Grammy for Album of the Year!!!!! Which means even white folks who think Hip Hop is noise thought that album was the greatest work produced that year......What other rapper or rap group can say that? None. So like Big Boi said " Paperboy, you cant destroy what we have built, pick on someone your own size, fuck around and get killed." They started this Southern Movement and they keep the south relevant in the mainstream everytime they drop and album!

  • GOOGO024

    I love bananas in my ass

  • Googoo24

    LOL! The Real#1Stan is prepubescent wet dreamer who has been trolling this page for 13 days now, because Big Boi got rated half a point higher (HALF A POINT! LOL!) His life is none existent. In fact, I got his shit stained drawers in such bunch, that he is now responding to me personally. On a fucking HipHopdx comment section! In fact, I got him riding my dick like a seasoned rodeo star. He calls people "faggots", but, like the dumb-ass that he is, he named himself after a loser who masturbated to the thought of being with Eminem. Eminem's dick is so far up this guys ass, they found remnants of broken condoms in his fucking stomach. He already has a year supply of petroleum jelly. However, If you want a good laugh, go read the user comments in the recovery review. I bet he left the seat he was sitting in soaking after each glowing review he wrote about the album. "MASTERPIECE," "5/5" and "MY BABY DADDY MAKES GOOD MUSIC!" are a few examples of his enduring love.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      get a job wet back

    • AZMEXICANO

    • Googoo24

      Crying? I'm euphoric! I succeeded in my goals! Oh, and that should be "You're" a faggot. Those remedial classes obviously didn't help, much, eh?

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      Your a FAGGOT. keep cryin like the bitch you are...its making me laugh HAHAHAHAHA

    • Googoo24

      Which is worse Stan? You going to every article to bash this user name (which isn't even my real account) or me making a curt paragraph to solidify your weak ego? LMAO!

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      Keep crying bitch HAHAHAHA

    • Googoo24

      In fact, he mentions my name in every recent news posting. Go read the new reviews to get an example. It's good to see that I made an impact on the poor bugger.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      for you to cry and make a comment that long about me..tells me im gettin to your head. MU HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH keep it comin FAGGOT

  • THE REAL#1STAN

    GOOGOO24 is a faggot, he takes bananas to his ass.

  • Tdotfromdabronx

    Mediocre if you ask me I thought Big Boi would come much harder *pause on the album kind of disappointed...

  • snooks864

    This is a small list of albums I've bought in the past year. Eminem - Recovery Ghost Rae and Meth The Roots Nas and Damien Marley Talib Kweli and D.J. Hi - Tec This Big Boi album is by far the best of the year. And all this time I thought Andre 3000 was the more creative of the two.

  • LamarMaticc

    I'm really dissapointed with this album. I wouldn't even had listened to it, but since everybody seems to love it so much I did. Average.

  • kingdhee

    Easily the best album to come out so far this year...way better than Recovery which doesn't compare in my opinion...can't wait till the next Outkast album drops!!! Best albums so far this year: 1. Sir Lucious Left Foot The Son of Chico Dusty - Big Boi 2. Dopeman Music - Scarface 3. Distant Relatives - Nas and Damian Marley 4. Recovery - Eminem 5. Plies - Goon Affiliated ((((((JUST PLAYING LMAO!!!))))

    • yoooooood

      1. Sir Lucious Left Foot The Son of Chico Dusty - Big Boi 2. Distant Relatives - Nas and Damian Marley 3. The Roots - How I Got Over 4. Recovery - Eminem (haven't heard the scarface joint)

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      you obviously dont know shit

  • Harold

    Incredible album with superlative production. Though the subject matter could, to some extent, be more diverse, who cares when the music sounds this good? IMHO, one of the best albums released this year.

  • Googoo24

    What a piece of incredible shit!

  • THE REAL#1STAN

    what a pile of shit

    • hater's hater

      you guys are all gay.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      your whore of a mother smells like fuckin beer and socks. Give that hairy bitch a bath.

    • Googoo24

      Why would the person being insulted think the insults being hurled at them are funny, idiot!? At least my mother doesn't walk around with "HipHopDX" tatted on her back with words "My best clients" written underneath that shit. I heard she even had Jake Paine's name tatted on her left titty.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      Your mom fucked everyone here on HipHopDX except you. Thats why ur crying like a fuckin baby everyday. Your jokes are lame as fuck by the way

    • Googoo24

      I'd rather have rice sized than microscopic, dumb ass! LMAO! And what's this about interrupting you? You were there for less than a minute. I heard you came before your pants were even down; talking about you spilled drink on your shorts. And who cares if my mother's pussy smells like beer and socks, you're the one fucking her (or not), fool! I bet you paid for that shit too! LOL!

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      is that what your crusty old slutty mother told you? Well she just said that so you dont feel insecure about your rice sized dick...anyways, thanks for not interrupting us tonight like I asked. Her pussy smelled like beer and socks but it didnt stop me

    • Googoo24

      Feed her what? Kibbles & Bits? She told me about the microscopic thing you call a wee wee. Said she had to use the Hubble telescope to see that shit. Said the condom you used was so small they don't even sale that shit at the store. Those shits are made to order. And again with this "faggot" shit, dude your name is STAN. I remember that shit you wrote: "I love you Slim, we coulda been together, think about it." LMAO!

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      At least your cool with me fuckin your mother, I appreciate that. Not that I needed your bitch ass permission anyway. I'd still feed it to her no matter what. Just dont interrupt us this time with your faggot boyfriend. Go do that shit in your own room, leave your mother and I alone.

    • Googoo24

      "your mothers?" Dude, as far as I can tell, I only have one mother. LOL. And of course you're into freaky shit like that! That's the only pussy you who can hope obtain; better make the best of it. From cum crust on your lower lip to wrinkly pussy. You, sir are a winner!

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      your mothers over 60? Nice, Im into freaky shit like that...fuckin ur mothers 60 year old wrinkly pussy sounds fun. You'll have fun watchin too i'll pass by soon bitch

    • Googoo24

      that should read "can't conceptualize," I don't want to boost your -10000 self-esteem level.

    • Googoo24

      Dude, I bet you can even conceptualize the idea of receiving pussy. I mean look at ya, your user name is based off a character who wanted to have a relationship with eminem; translation=homo. I mean seriously, what kinda fucking loser trolls on Hiphopdx user comments for half a damn month? And my mother is over 60, so I guess you like wrinkly pussy; since that's the best you can get. I mean damn, you're sucking Em's dick so hard, I bet your pre-order for Recovery came with complementary knee-pads.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      I'll get real personal with ya mamas vagina...not this shitty Big Boi album

    • Googoo24

      Personal!? That's bit of an understatement! Dude has been bashing this album for about half-a-month now! It's pretty hilarious.

    • Harold

      Seems like something personal to me.....if your previous comments are any indication. it seems you got beef with this album being rated higher than Recovery. Like I said, forget I asked.

    • THE REAL#1STAN

      lyrics, production, ZERO replay value...its just overall really weak.

    • Harold

      Seriously, forget I asked.......

    • Harold

      Wow....You seriously hate this album? What for?

  • MrLxZ

    very good album, very surprised by how good it was

  • c//gaddic

    How the fuck you cocksuckers be comparing Eminem to Big boi and Outkast? That's an insult to the rap genre!!! Em easily shits on outkast technically with way better lyricism and story-telling skills OUtkast is a great talented group because of thier fusing and experiementing with so many different genres of music and making it hip-hop Aquemini is a hip-hop classic but seriously bar for bar, wordplay for wordplay, rhyme schemes for rhyme schemes is it anywhere near Reasonable Doubt or Illmatic or even MMLp? Big Boi is just another rapper with good lyrics If it wasn't for his and andre's immense musical blending skills and quality experimentation they wouldn't be that good Dungeon family has always been about catchy feel-good music Their difference from other popish rappers is that it's consistent, wholly orginal fucking creative and fucking dope!!! This lp isn't any different kudos to BBoi This is better than Recovery musically and consistently But tell me a track on this or a verse lyrically anywhere near "On fire"/"Cold wind blows"!!!

    • kingdhee

      I won't waste my time arguing my point I'll just say this Em can't fuck with Andre 3000...no1 in the rap game can!!!!

    • C-Mo Money

      hold the fuck up, Eminem and OutKast are both in the top of all time. So sayin whos betta is just opinions. Andre 3000 n big boi rhyme pretty quickly so it aint as easy to digest their lyrics as Em but they r just as lyrical (if not more since the switch up their rap topics n shit)

    • Googoo24

      Opinions dude, everyone has them. It's your belief that Eminem is the better rapper; I have my own interpretation of what defines a good rapper. Personally, I'd go with the person who seems to put out good music consistently.

    • haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammy

      I feel you Why are we comparing whos best ? Thats some white-boy shit....... Im tired of all that shit.........this was a great album. Respect any black men gettin money. Ems cool too

    i love the intro to this album . there are a few good grooves on here . finally some decent hip hop from a mainstream artist .

  • black caesar 513

    Recovery was nice...but about 5 tracks you could skip...the production on their could of been better,but this album is Fire, best album since cuban linx II. just as sharp as em lyrically, this album also has bangers unlike eminem, i love eminem to death but his album was a 4/5 tops. This is a 5/5 str8 classic P.S. still waiting on those saigon and jcole records to drop

  • AZMEXICANO

    If you haven't purchased this album yet then you are missing out on the best cd of the summer so far. If you don't like Outkast, great beats, smooth lyrics and love any garbage that Nas puts out, like that nut jocker Nas Esco, then you probably wont like it.

    • ernutis

      Azmexixano You are fuckin bitch, and stop postin your idiot meaningless comments about greatest Mc's. You dont know shit about HH music, so better stay away from posting your 'hater mentality' garbage.

    • Mylie

      Distant Relatives and Sir Lucious are defo the albums i'll be bumping years from now.

    • blunted.in.nc

      no need to hate on nasty nas man, both can spit and proved they can drop good albums in 2010, i agree SLLC is the BEST cd of summer i want to say album of the year but theres so much left to come out this year that i cant be sure, but def the dopest album of 2010 so far, and no im not also a "nas nut jocker", his last solo album was garbage but he came back with DR an album that actually had a true meaning and purpose behind it (as opposed to "untitled" or whatever you wanna call it...) and the money from that went to great purpose.... either way big boi and nas are two of the most talented MC's to ever do it, no reason you cant like both

  • The Ooh Child

    This album was a huge surprise for me. I was expecting a solid album, but Big Boi came pretty damn close to dropping a classic. He definitely solidified himself as an official hip hop heavyweight with this release, as opposed to simply being viewed as the lesser half of Outkast. In my eyes, he can fuck with just about anybody. 9 out of 10 album

  • BONKEIRA

    One of the best lyricists in the south. I've been bumpin' outkast since southernplayalistic, and i saw big boi live at rock the bells last year. That's why i hate most down south shit because i grew up listening to outkast, scarface and goodie mobb, and the homos now-a-days don't even compare. No one can touch this dude. I'll admit this joint's a little more pop but he's still on top of his game.

  • Amirinho

    Good Album... Some Crazy Hits... But tha Rest is Mediocre

  • BAM12393

    This is the perfect summer banger for sure! Windows down, system up.

  • rainer654

    this album got amaing hooks and thats what makes the album sound bigger.. just listen to Shutterbag,Back up plan,Follow us,Fo yo sorrows and even Gucci mane on Shine blockas..... amazing hooks.nice work

  • Nas Esco

    I don't see the big deal about this album..everyone giving it five stars like it was enter the 36 chambers,illmatic,only built for cuban linx,ready to die,all eyez on me or sum shit..it's ok but not all that great like people claiming it to be..why do people overate outkast so much?? there not all that..all there albums released in the 2000's were wack and overated as fuck..they bore me

    • muzikCALI

      OverRated??TRIPPIN..NAS dropped a classic first LP. OutKast dropped one too with SouthernPlayalistic. Then NAS put out mostly BS until DistantRelatives. OutKast has remained creative AND releavent in the game since they broke out without selling out or puttin up some Garbage tracks. EM has always been great but Recovery isnt nearly as good as SIR LUCIOUS..

    • b-dizzle

      @ Nas Esco!! i can tell by ur name ur all up on Nas' Nuts!! ".why do people overate outkast so much?? there not all that..all there albums released in the 2000's were wack" 2000- Stankonia 4X Platinum 2003- Speakerboxx/Love Below? 11x Platinum 16 Million Rec. Sold Between these albums alone say They're Great!!! ITS GOOD MUSIC!! Give em the Props they Deserve!!!!

    • AZMEXICANO

      Get off of Nas nuts. This album was better than the Roots, Distant Relatives, and the Recovery. Real talk son.

    • nice...

      oh and to the nas fan, no wonder you can't appreciate the album cuz you hugged up nas' nuts real hard

    • nice...

      the comment bout no substance

    • nice...

      that last comment literally put my jaw on the ground. wow

    • Quon

      Subliminal(SA) & NAS ESCO smh at this homos hating on Kast are you serious? Big Boi and Outkast is all about substance and having a good time. real hip hop = real life stop being a ignorant bitch and listen to the album and learn.

    • Subliminal(SA)

      I agree. This is overrated. I think Big Boi makes bullshit music with no substance.

    • blunted.in.nc

      PLEASE stop trying to compare albums that came out more than a decade ago to albums coming out in 2010. nothing that comes out now can be expected to compare to any of the great albums of the 90's, it was a different time period. how about you rate this album according to what else is being put out in THIS time period??? SLLF definitely deserves 5 stars in 2010, maybe not in 1993 but guess what? its not 1993, learn how to appreciate an album that exceeds expectations and leads the pack of its own era. p.s. googoo24 is completely right about your credibility

    • Googoo24

      Overrate Outkast!? With that statement, you have lost all credibility.

    • sublimenirvana

      how you gonna dismiss stankonia like that?

  • AZMEXICANO

    This album sounds very nice. I can't wait to pick it up. Been down with Outkast and Big Boi since before most you cats been playing with your Ninja Turtles. Real hip hop.

  • sublimenirvana

    perfect album for the summer, plus how can you hate on big boi?

  • hello young world

    Outstanding album!!!!!

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    An incredible album. This album is on another level from a sonic perspective. Nothing else sounds like it.

  • Stu

    Come on people. It's not like folks only like one artist solely. Can't sum1 be a fan of more than one artist?? I think Recovery was a good album and i got my copy first week but dangg.. this album is ridiculous. First of all, the beats are on point. I feel Recovery could have been better if eminem selected better banging beats but considering the idea of the Recovery concept, Em wasn't trying to bring out a banging album. This album on the other hand is BANGING. Big Boi's flow is on point. As a biased Eminem fan, i'd say Recovery=Sir Lucious Left Foot.. Listen to whichever depending on the mood. Em had Almost Famous, No Love, Cold wind Blows etc.. Good stuff imo The SLLF cd esp Tangerine & Hustle blood tracks are on repeat right now BTW (obviously because the cd was more recently purchased )

  • Vega

    Let's keep it real... the 1st 3 Em albums were pretty hard, but everything after that has sucked. And keeping it even realer... Both Big Boi and Andre 3000 are better rappers, period. They have CONSISTENTLY put out MUCH better music than Eminem ever has.

    • AZMEXICANO

      I agree with Vega. STU there is a reason you play it more in the car. It has much better beats and uptempo tracks. Nothing against Recovery. But imo it was a 4 and this is a 5.

    • Stu

      Uhhmm.. We As Americans, Toy Soldiers, Mocking Bird, Love you more, Mosh.. These were great great songs off Em's Encore Album. Relapse had 3/4 songs i like. Recovery is a really good album. Mind you, the title is exactly what the CD is about and if you are judging a song as trash because it doesn't have a beat you can dance to, then boi, you know little about music.. On the Other hand Sir Lucious' Left foot is a solid banging album. I got this as well as the Recovery cd and play whichever depending on the mood. But I swear I've been bumping SLLF in the car a bit more than recovery these past few days

  • blunted.in.nc

    @em is the best #1 "thats cuz he is the best. Name one rapper with better flow, lyrics, storytellin. Man fuck Big Boi he ain't shit without Andre. But Em is so good he's literally untouchable on the mic" NAS. anyone who loves eminems music( myself included) has to know that infinite was em's best album hands down. where do you think the main influence from that album came from? illmatic of course, the best album of all time from the most talented emcee of all time(note i didnt say the best, that goes to Rakim cause this coversation would be nonexestint without the God MC). em killed recovery lyrically but he doesnt say shit that means anything anymore, just random babbling like 90 percent of "rap stars' these days(wayne, drake, ross, jeezy, etc.). all very talented rappers who i listen to a lot, but rap is just not on the same level as it used to be. its about selling records and making money now, listen to nas's 1991 demo tape, thats real hip hop for the sake of making music not to sell records like recovery. recovery was a very good album by 2010 standards though ill give you that, but big boi's album is a great album by any standards. and in my opinion big boi is that much better now that he's out of 3 stacks shadow, hes got alot more confidence and swagger to him now. and a much more precise and clean flow than em does currently. of course this is all my personal opinion, you asked

    • Stu

      lol.. ur very right.. in everything u wrote (including the last line) It was Eminem's Slim Shady persona that made pple like me enjoy his work. Plus the occasional songs like Till i Collapse & Loose yourself.. but this recovery had none of that slim shady stuff.. Just emotional rantings. Em probably intended this album to be this "sober music" given the title and choice of beats. SLLF on the other hand.. well u've said it all.. I'd score recovery a 4 and SLLF a 4.5.. A song like Till i Collapse is a perfect example of how a dope beat & hook can make a great song even better. This is where SLLF excels.. Speaking of Gucci.. that shine blockas song was dope..

    • blunted.in.nc

      thanks for keepin me in check for real, i did buy recovery though and listened to it a few times all the way through so your wrong about that. but last night when i wrote that i was trippin(literally on mushrooms) and "random blabbling" was not a good word choice ill admit that. what i meant was that on most of the album,(not including cold wind blows, 25 to life, going thru changes, and some others) i personally do not like his lyrical approach to things. i meant hes not clever and funny anymore, its not random babbling, its themed ranting if you like that better. i can understand thats his inspiration now, but me personallly, i love the em that came out with funny cleer lyrics that seemed to slap you in the face when you heard them. his old music would make me laugh out loud, still does actually. this isnt what i personally prefer from em, thats all. its a great album though.... and if you want to call SLLF themed babbling then ill respect that but its not random babbling, it doesnt make either album worse, no need for you to get defensive, i was just pointing out that these mainstream rappers are not on the same level of in depth meaning as some older rappers, just my opinion but nothing on either album can stand up to illmatic, so answering his original question, there are many rappers who deserve the GOAT spot above em, soley because theyre real heartfelt rap paved the way for em to take shits on the game with his funny inventive style. all im saying is i miss that alot in an em album... for 2010 standards i think both albums are total gems and we should feel lucky to have them in our cd players. but i give SLLF a 4.5 and em 4.25 if i could, thats on 2010 standards which as we all know arent very high, but these two albums have definitely been a huge step for the future of hip hop, im really glad theyre doing well because it def raises the bar for a few years to come, and hip hop needed that. i feel alot better about 2010 to 2015 now with these two albums and hopefully a few more reaally good ones are coming out later this year. i think people are going to look back on 2010 as the year that hip hop found itself again and started to rise from the ashes of "gucci mane, soulja boy, and other embarrasments to rap. maybe we can call it the silver era, because its not going to duplicate the golden era but i really hope(starting with these albums and the roots) that hip hop is about to enter theyre next best era. who knows this may sound like "random babbbling"(haha irony) to some of you but I can dream cant I?

    • Stu

      Emm.. Agreed with everything you said except.. "but he doesnt say shit that means anything anymore, just random babbling".. Uhm.. Going thru Changes, Talkin 2 Myself, 25 to Life, Almost Famous random babbling??? Yes for tracks like Cold wind blows, So Bad, Won't Back Down, but random babbling on the others i just mentioned?? SMH.. And you were doing so well with ur post.. SLLF is a great album (beats on point thru-out) but it is even more random babbling than Recovery.. And even you know this.. But since you probably didn't listen to Recovery u wouldn't know..

  • Get it correct

    u white kids killing me with this em shit. The slim shady lp was great but just because ya'll run out and buy all his crappy records after that lp don't make him the greatest and his last two album r just awful until you fully understand rap music and the hiphop culture try refraining from posting such rubbish.

  • kush nap

    yo big boi took it ALL the way back on this. he on that southernplayalistic shit on here. every producer borught heat. kast know how to pick beats, and they make a track a record. this nigga boi needs no help dropping classics. incredible album. tip to tip flames. its pretty amazing how dope this nigga still is. kast forever fresh. big boi showin everyone its a 2 man party, he rippin like he was trynna get signed here. beats, hooks, verses, banger. 5 mics 5 stars easy purchase. album of the fuckin year, great year for hip hop.

  • ChessRapNucca

    The 2nd best album of the year....only Nas & Damian did it bigger. This album is more fun, and fresh. I dont think OUtkast new album will be this good...cause this is a near classic mane...i think i give it like 95/100 at least

  • BIGDUKE

    THIS IS THE BEST ALBUM I'VE HEARD IN A LONG WHILE, DADDY FAT SACKZ, TURNS ME ON, SHUTTER BUGG, GENERAL PATTON (BEST SONG ON ALBUM), TANGERINE, YOU AINT NO DJ (BANGER BY 3000), BE STILL, FO YO SORROWS, NIGHT NIGHT, SHINE BLOCKAS, AND BACK-UP PLAN ARE THE BEST TRACK ON THE ALBUM THE REST ARE OK. BIG BOI DELIVERS DAMN NEAR A CLASSIC. GENERAL PATTON IS THE BEST SONG I'VE HEARD IN LIKE FIVE YEARS.

  • Malder

    This album is good southern hiphop.. His songs are creative unlike a lot of southern rappers, Big Boi got a serious flow unlike a lot of southern rappers, and he aint just talking about the traphouse and rims unlike a lot of southern rappers.. Im proud that this album is Bangin cause i been ridin with Outkast since Southerplayalisticadillacmusic!! Crumblin Herb was my SHIT!!! Much Respect to Big Boi.. C'mon 3 Stacks give us that new Kast album soon.. RESPECT!!

  • hello young world

    Lyrics and beats dope...So refreshing from all the bullshit on the radio lately...NOW CAN WE GET AN OUTKAST ALBUM!?!?!? I'd give this hoe six stars if I could...love Boi's delivery!!

  • Noqwar

    For all the talk about how great Andre is, Speakerboxxx was much better than the Love Below. Big Boi has been the backbone to all the Outkast records, spitting almost 2 verses for every one of Andre's all the way back to Stankonia. Unquestioned that they're the best hip hop duo ever. Who else even compares? Eric B. and Rakim? Gangstarr? EPMD? While these other guys dropped great stuff, Outkast changed the way everyone, rock fans, rap fans, listened to music. I can't wait to pick this album up.

    • heflys

      Obviously you. So amusing. Here's my “rant” again (since it was removed). Anyway, here's what I've gathered: You're either, one, a self-conscious douch who relies on review sites to validate his taste in music. If a site contradicts your opinion, you turn hostile and embark on a crusade to discredit said site through persistent commenting; thus reflecting your self-conscious tendencies. Or, more than likely, you're a troll who needs to satisfy some perverted “fetish” by antagonizing other users. Even more amusing is the fact that you're bitching about an Eminem review score on a site that actually rated it pretty highly, so much so that you're trashing another album. For example, the 2.8 of 10 Pitchfork gave your beloved Recovery. Honestly? I could really give a fuck. Anyway, have a nice day, sir.

    • THEREAL#1STAN

      Who gives a fuck about you and your bitch ass rant. Go cry on ur moms small tittie

    • heflys

      LOL a dude called #1STAN is calling me a "faggot" sooooo funny. Anyway, here's what I've gathered: You're either, one, a self-conscious douch who relies on review sites to validate his taste in music. If a site contradicts your opinion, you turn hostile and embark on a crusade to discredit said site through persistent commenting (like they give a shit); thus reflecting your self-conscious tendencies. Or, more than likely, you're a troll who needs to satisfy some perverted “fetish” by antagonizing other users. Even more hilarious is your anger over Eminem receiving a 4 out of 5, when this site gave it one of the better scores. Example: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14380-recovery/ Honestly? I could really give a fuck. Anyway, have a nice day, sir.

    I had to post just because I seen one too many people trying to trash Big Boi, nothing he does is wack, EVER, he can spit with anyone and better than most! So all you corny 'don't know talent and quality music half booty Stans' need to just keep listenin to Soulja Boy and do the Dougie & shut the hell up!

  • mwl1119

    This CD gets a five based on its many uses. Great coaster, good frisbee, awesome mirror....... The music on the disc is trash. The beats are unique but very repetitive.

  • omg

    this song is sick man ! x

  • JACKIN ON YO HOE

    it seems black people waited for somebody kinda good to drop so they can call it a classic and hype it up all bigger than it actually is, all becuz of that recovery by the whiteboy

  • EssentialMC

    Big Boi came hard i've been waiting for some new outkast crack to chill too. This will do. This CD is almost a classic but i think its missing that special something that makes a classic. No classic songs that can support a classic album but its still 5 stars easily one the best CDs of the yera it might evenbe alblum of the year. To all the peole who support Eminem Recovery had some weak tracks/beats I thought he needed Dre to get his weight up. It was still an incredible CD. Big Boi's CD had every single beat on point and Big Bois lyrics were ridiculous. I would rate Big Boi's CD higher though neither were classics. If you really didn't like BIg Boi's CD its streaming on myspace listen again and then make his decision. I havent heard the Roots new CD but Im gonna cop it soon. This year is like a hip hop heads wet dream.

    This shit is dope....funky ass shit...something to ride too.What's really great and ironic about OUTKAST/BIG BOI...I know the south catches alot hell from the hip hop community..myself included..I feel that alot of their contributions to hip hop are trite..ill conceived and overall a insult to the aestethic and culture of hip hop..Not to mention very suspect artist...lyrically. BUT oukast seem to keep it south at the same time,not coming off as corny or phony..They make music that is not characterized by region,coast..content or sound...These guy's are living legends...Big Boi showed his ass.

  • Gunn Starr

    Cannot front at all, I love outkast and I think Big Boi always holds the collective down where 3000 doesn't. I Love what i have heard so far of this album

  • Dosage

    You cannot compare the Kast not even 3000 or Big Boi seperately to any faction. (i.e. I hear Em and so forth). These guys created their own style and CONSISTENTLY put out good music. True artists. IMO

  • Gods_Son23

    This has gotta be the most loved hip hop album on the internet since I don't know when.... I enjoy it but even the best tracks like Shutterbug, Daddy Fat Saz, and so on, are very good, but not classics, and then you've got maybe 4 tracks to skip. Good, maybe 3.5/5, but I wouldn't quite believe the hype.

    • Gods_Son23

    The Least That I Could Say That This Album Is A Masterpiece The Production I"ve Heard In A Long Time Plus Big Boi Holdin It Down On The Mic.....Definitely Coppin This

  • Dab

    Oh boy 2010 has been a hell of a year for me. This year I bought: Distant Relatives Revolutions Per Minute The ArchAndroid Recovery How I Got Over A Badly Broken Code (some Dessa chich thanks HHDX for introducing me to her and Doomtree) I haven't bought that many albums in one year in a long while. And with the 2nd half of 2010 I hyped for Kanye and Lupe's new albums. And I'm pretty sure I'm missing a bunch of rappers. Jay Elec? Blu? J. Cole? Skyzoo? Anyway on to the album. This album is fantasic. I was a little worried because I haven't heard Big Boi in YEARS and that song he had with Mary J. was kind of lame. But luckily he brought his A game even without Andre 3000. This is one of those creative albums that I can see myself playing for years (like the rest of Outkast discovery)

    Come on HHDX, Recovery deserved 5 star classic, and Relapse deserved at least 4.5 and THIS gets 4.5 stars? I admit I didn't hear the album but there is NO WAY IN HELL its better then Recovery. Recovery was the best album in the last 5 years. Man fuck this site

    • BAM12393

      @ EM IS THE BEST #1 "Name one rapper with better flow, lyrics, storytellin." Have you ever heard of Nas, The Roots, Phroahe Monch, Reflection Eternal.....? Yes, these rappers are still relevant; 3/4 dropped an album this year.

    Without a doubt one of the top cds that will drop this year or the next few years for that matter. Check out the 2nd verse on "The Train Pt. 2" and he be killin that boy Ricky Ross (and no not the real Rick Ross). Personally I'm not a fan of Ross and I don't play/listen to his music but I don't hate on the fat cat either. For the most part I just ignore his ass but Lupe Fiasco got his ass on B.O.B. album on the track "Past My Shades" and now Big Boi gets in on him. I'm sure there has been some others besides the obvious records by 50 but Big Boi & Lupe get in that ass and I bet it puts a funny ass look on his face once he hears it for himself. As for the rest of the CD, it's bananas. Love the production, Big Boi is an incredible MC, and just a dope album. A must have in 2010! Albums getting the most rotation in my CD player from 2010, in no particular order: *Recovery (Eminem) Some of the beats are weak but it's a lyrical monster which makes up for it and puts the record in constant rotation at the moment *Sir Lucious Left Foot The Son of Chico Dusty (Big Boi) Only been listening to it the past two days but without a doubt this CD goes hard, lyrically and the beats make this an instant contender for best album of the year *100 Proof (Statik Selektah) Statik has been droppin some heat recently and becoming more and more consistent in my opinion which gives me a healthy dose of good hip hop *Soldier of Love (Sade) Silky Smooth and just the thing I need after a long day. I put this in on a late night drive back from Chicago. Puts me in chill mode while watching them white lines pass me by one after another *The Adventures of Bobby Ray (B.O.B.) Far from a classic album and to me it's more of a Pop record yet I still find myself coming back to check out handful of songs *Revolutions Per Minutes (Reflection Eternal) In the Red & Ballad Of The Black Gold are worth the purchase alone but the entire CD is phat like hand bone. There is a few others but truth be told there isn't much thats dropped so far this year that I'm really blown away by. I'm always looking every week for some sleepers to pop but recently it feels like it's harder and harder to get some good shit. Sad really, but I'm hoping the 2nd half of the year has a few more solid releases. And they wonder why kids don't be wasting their money on CD's. Most the shit that comes out has a few gems and the rest is garbage. Personally I think the he internet has allowed people to save that hard earned money and spend it on other shit thats actually worth it. Only a few albums are solid top to bottom and I think it's a good thing cause it forces artists to step their game up and start putting in work. Otherwise they will continue to join the majority of the artists who collect dust on the shelves of Best Buy.

    Good review. I was surprised they were so far off on the Drake review. It will bite them in the ass when the album sets in and hindsight is 20/20. I'd say, all of the albums are quality Recovery, How I Got Over, Thank Me Later and Left Foot. People need to calm down and just enjoy all the good quality records and if they absolutely need to hate on something, stick to the Waka Flockas, Flo-Rida's and 50. Good art can just be good art. There are classic albums out right now that can co-exist. They all get spins

    • googoo24

      Ahhh.......You can have an opinion, but HipHopDX can't? Isn't that a bit hypocritical?

    • theteachya

      damn violate a person cause they have an opinion, i think TML was great & hiphopdx was way off on there rating, Chico Dusty is a great album to my once agian hiphopdx is way off on there rating, they look like a fanboy...IMO!!!!

    • CW@TTE

      That Jew???....You ignorant goof. Come with something constructive or don't come at all. I wrote a review for Distant Relatives. It got spins too, but I trust it won't be remembered like TML. Truth Hurts....Get the fuck outta here

    • nice...

      @ CW@TTE "Don't hate the hype"? nigga you crazy, right about now it's no love for hype. hype dissapoints. and thank me later was bullshit. wont lie i listen to 2 joints off that on the regular tho.

    • Quon

      who gives a fukk what Complex says? they are media whores who don't have a clue how to rate good music anymore.TML is boring and shallow album far from album of the year. if you had a mind of your own and actually sat down and listened to Distant Relatives, Recovery, Sir Lucious Left Foot you will see that jew Drake is an overhyped and overrated at this point. truth hurts

    • CW@TTE

      Just got rated best album of the year by Complex. TSS gave it 4.5. Sorry Royce but you have been passed by. The album will stand the test of time. I promise you that...or were you so quick to dismiss ATLiens after CadilacMuzik. Think back. Don't hate the hype...or did you hate So Far Gone too?

    • Royce

      thank me later was garbage stfu

  • Matt513

    This CD is trash. Nowhere close to dethroning The Pursuit of Nappyness from my CD player.

    • Matt513

      I have listened to it enough. The only tracks I can stand are Daddy Fat Sax, Shutterbug, and Shine Blockas (both of them). Once I wore those songs out it was bag to Nappy Roots which is a CD 50x better than this.

    • lonestar_playa

      dis album ain't near trash brah! u need 2 give dis anotha spin!

  • BRUTUS

    Big BOI! Keep doing Yo' Thang My nigga. Funk All tha' Haters. Solo or Duo...., OUTKAST 4 Life...., Seriously, BRUTUS WHITE!

  • GetMoney007

    I am suprised @ the # of ppl hating on this album and Big Boi. Finally a rapper from ATL is dropping soming that is lyrical.... I'm so sick of Gucci and Wacka Flacka "repping" Atlanta.This is going 2 be one of the best albums of the year.

    • SutterKane

      Why are U surprised??..........This is the internet, people hate on everything thats succesful online

    • Anon1

      Maybe they're not hating. Maybe they just have a low opinion of the album. I don't know if they have a hateful stance towards the album though. I personally like the album but just cause someone doesn't like it doesn't mean they are a Gucci (who is on the album!) or Waka fan. I don't know why if you don't like one thing you automatically like the other.

  • iBar

    Wonder who inspired Eminem's positivity on Recovery? Yours truly! iBar! Come to my page and listen to "!". www.myspace.com/ibaronline

  • chris cool

    album bangs front to back. beats and lyrics on point.

  • JonesDeini

    Trilly though, folk, this joint right here is slick front to back. Great album, easily surpassed my expectations (which were very high). This album is mosdef one of the best I've heard in quite some time.

  • capital Z

    BLACK THOUGHT is the greatest MC of all-time.

  • capital Z

    Hip Hop fans across America need to wake up and realize that the best album this year, so far, is HOW I GOT OVER by THE ROOTS!

    • Rawkus22

      Top Albums of 2010 1. The Roots - How I Got Over 2. Eminem - Recovery 3. Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot - The Son of Chico Dusty

  • KillaKing

    Eminem >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> big boi but, Big Boi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any ATL rapper might be the ONLY good ATL rapper..

    Eminem >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> big boi but, Big Boi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any ATL rapper might be the ONLY good ATL rapper..

  • younglazy

    Big Boi goes super tough, people need to stop comparing to eminem and drake, yall must be foolin yourself if you think those guys compare. just wish there was a 3 stacks verse on it. classic shit, coppin on tuesday for sure

  • drzaius007

    This is a classic album, really, it is, a front to back banger. If you dont think so, kill urself, for real. Ppl saying it's just cuz he's OutKast (the best rap group off all time) that ppl are giving this album such high ratings....well yeah....OutKast makes classic albums, hence, why this is a classic album and should win album of the year

  • andrewsassmic

    I think this album is going to be fucking SICK!

  • kjohnson

    Been waiting for this.. It was worth the wait.

  • yoboy305

    wow i see most of you niggas no nothing about real music this is hands down the best shit to drop this year i mean first off both members of outkast can outshine and out rhyme more then have the rappers out there and yes that means your favorite lame ass nyc battle rapper too

  • Drum Machine

    nice to hear someone trying to be different.

  • ts5000

    this album won't even sell 80,000 copies

  • ts5000

    the only reason this album is gettin rated so high cause hes from outkast

  • ts5000

    this album isn't no 4.5. hiphopdx needs to a rater or somethin people r overratin this album its only a 3.0./3.5

    • Micah!

      Did you just say 3/3.5 thats thats the same as 4.5/5 fuckin idiot. the album is tight to me, wont be leving the ipod

    • drzaius007

      fuck outta here, so every review site is wrong with the 4.5/5, its def 5/5 ppl just to scared to give it a classic

  • sun_god7

    One of the best albums to come out in 2010. Best South album since Paper Trail.

  • tha bizness

    Not one bad song on this album. Wasn't expecting much after "For Yo' Sorrows" leaked almost 7 months ago..but it goes well with the overall sound of the album. Btw, why are all these people comparing Big Boi to Eminem??? They are NOTHING alike except that they are both MC's and do some production. Take each individual for who they are...don't try to lump together MC's from entirely different backrounds and have wayyy different ideas about the way hip-hop should sound like...these guys are both good and are doing what they do best.

  • rbg warrior

    Is every album rated on here from this point out will be compared to eminem? GTFOH!!!! four cds that way colder the than cracka's (yeah i said it, if yall gonna use nigga, im gonna use cracka) shit (like shaka barashango said, "hate is good for the soul, it helps cleanse!): distant relatives revolutions per minute rbg gangsta grillz (yeah, the mixtape) how i got over FUCKA!!!

    • IgnorantMuthafukaz

      for real tho, the best thing u can call us is a piece of food,, get the fuck outta here u monkey

    • make it or take it

      lol too bad cracka ain't offensive. yeah, make fun of white people for the time they owned people and massive plots of land... man that must have sucked.

  • 2dope

    i love eminem infact hes my favorite rapper ever but i gotta give it to big boi this came out of absofreakinlutely nowhere and it is so far the best album of the year the production is off the chains and big boi style and flow is supermagnificent anyone who doubts is a coward byfar

  • D.D.410wutup

    Good ass year for hip hop. And there's still more!

  • THEREAL#1STAN

    Eminem is a beast compared to this shit. Go get Rocovery!!

    • Twinblades

      Big boi>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Em

    • wtf

      you must smoke a lot of weed if you think that tasteless garbage recovery is better this work of art get off eminem lap big boi album is not only one of the best hip hop albums is one of the best album this year!!!!!

    • c red

      i agree recovery way better and em is better in general but this album is a strong 3 not a 1

    • THEREAL#1STAN

      Fuck off homo

    • drzaius007

      so u give a classic album 1 star, EM is good, but Big's album is 10x better, fucker

  • #1stan

    eminem would lyrically rape and torture this dude

    • yeswow

      you prolly never even listened to outkast or big boi

    • kjohnson

      T-T, god forbid he isn't rapping about rims, cars, hoes and selling drugs. Shut it.

    • T-T

      haha you eminem stans crack me up you guys dont know what true hip-hop is you think crying about how hard your life is ,and how much you hate your family ,and how your going to change ,and how you wanna kill and rape people is hip hop then you need to educate yourself on what hip hop is lol big boi a lengend and he would beat eminem sorry eminem had only one classic which is infinite

  • melyy

    very nice..he is so underrated.

  • billybucks

    Big Boi is a legend in this game. For all you youngsters that are comparing this album to a Drake or Lil Wayne album do yourself a favor and educate yourself. Go back to Sothernplayalisticcadillacmusic and work your way up to the present. If you're still comparing artist with 2 or 3 hits under their belts to Big Boi and his accomplishments then you need a lobotomy.

    • BO-BO214 UGK 4 LIFE

      wow.. i am a huge outkast fan but no one even mentioned wayne until u did. u sound like a hater... and fuck eminem he will only reach legendary status in the minds of white people. UGK and Outkast for life

    • YungSuny

      Shut the fuck up. You sound like a nostalgic dick thirsty middle aged man.

    • dcollin4444

      Yessir, couldn't agree more

  • Mylie

    Big Boi STILL cooler then a polar bears toenails Legends. one of the best albums to come out this year.

    • Davis25

      All you fools on Em's tip, go ask Em if this album is classic and he will tell you it is too! Damn, its like these guys cant buy more than one record a year so they have to diss every other album but Em's!

  • Stylz D

    Album is a classic...can't wait for that cd in my box come Tuesday...big boi & kast define creativity in a game that isn't

  • dcollin4444

    I'll be honest, I'm not a huge Big Boi fan nor am I a huge Three Stacks fan, but when they come together, I'm all about it so I wasn't expecting much out of the ATLien's debut. But then I listened to it and I was wrong. Shit is really fucking good. I'd give it a 4.5, but right now, its my album of the year for 2010. Cop it on Tuesdsay, folks!

  • kush nap

    Garbage! Drake murders this fool

    • billybucks

      You're kind of an idiot for even comparing the two. Big Boi is a fuckin LEGEND. He has at least 5 classic albums. Drake is god damned rookie. Show some fuckin respect. You must be about 16 years old.

    • L-DuB

      Gotta agree with dcollin4444

    • dcollin4444

      Lol! Yeah...Drake's album is better than this one. Just like Flo Rida was better than Raekwon's OB4CL2 or Vanilla Ice's debut was better than Dr. Dre's The Chronic. I love it when 12 year olds get their own screen name and act like they know what they talking about...funny shit

  • OG T-BONE

    5 OUTTA 5!!!!!!! STARS,MICS,X’S IT DON’T MATTER!!!!! This Whole Cd is straight Fire!!! Production,Lyrics,Flow,Content all around the best CD in years It has soul,Funk,Bangers,Guitars. I think this is what we all were expecting from B.o.B not hat poppy shit he pulled on Bobby Ray. This is modern new age south Hip Hop done right! Outkast is top 10 off alltime!! Easily…….. 16 years going strong!!! Recovery is good, Way better than weak ass Relapse but I think Boi came harder and more original with out commercial mainstream shoving it down our throats… Sir Lucious Album of year so far….. But we got Lupe,Kanye and Detox still on the way!

  • Love4thereal

    I'm supportin' this 1 hard as hell Coppin' the record Tuesday P.S. That record w/Janelle Monae is the shit

  • HIP HOP'S ADVOCATE

    I'M FEELING THIS ALBUM 100%

  • Blakenotdrake

    Feeling this track bigboi doing it big

  • REDNMEF

    Isn't it funny that Drake was supposed to drop one of the greatest debuts of all time? Looking back, and having his album be one-uped by countless others (Big Boi, Em, Reflection Eternal, Z-ro, Nas & Damien Marley, the Roots, just to name a few of the bigger ones), isn't it funny the way we as a hip hop community crown someone without ample proof of how they really are? Yea So Far Gone was a really great mixtape, but Thank me Later was a major letdown. Not saying it was a trash album, but it just did not live up to the great expectations we had. Maybe Drake will even drop a classic one day, but until then we need to look at him as an example of giving someone too many props too early.

  • Piltch

    Cannot wait for this album to drop. Between this, nas & damien marley, The Roots, and the dead prez mixtape, I'm gonna be bumping all summer.

  • South Carolina

    dopeness! classic outkast ish... album of the summer!! perhaps of the year!!! big boi held his own for sho!!!! i'll be coppin it!! Peace

  • c/gaddic

    This album doesn't deserve a near classic rating 4.5? Get the fuck outta here and you guys have Stankonia at rating 4!!! By the way OMAR BURGESS it is 25 million records not fucking 15 MILLION ! Outkast is by far the best duo in history both critically and definitely commercially!!! IF THIS LP GOT A 4.5 RATING THREE STACKS BETTER HAVE 5 FUCKIN MICS!!!

    • KEDORDU

      WHAT DOES THIS ARTICLE HAVE TO DO WITH ANDRE 3000 . HES NOT IN IT ? HES IN OUTKAST . U HAD TO MENTION HIS NAME . WELL FUCK U IF U DONT LIKE IT. BIG BOI AND DUNGEON FAM ARE THE ORIGINATORS OF THE SOUTH . SO EVERYONE FROM PRODUCERS TO RAPPERS ARE WAITING ON THIS ALBUM . ITS WHAT I EXPECTED AND IT CERTAINLY DESERVES A 4.5

    • OG T-BONE

      You dont know shit!! Album is fire Start to Finish!

  • Jonan

    A solid album with great beats and Big Boi delivering his best, without a few more listens this will be even greater than what it is for me right now. I'm loving that Daddy Fat Sax track

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    Great album

    Only problem is that this album is pretty feature-heavy, and I think it could do without a certain feature or two Top 5 albums of the year so far (in order of release date): 1. Nas & Damian Marley - Distant Relatives 2. Reflection Eternal - Revolutions Per Minute 3. Eminem - Recovery 4. The Roots - How I Got Over 5. Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot Look out for these albums at the grammys
