Three generations of Atlanta rappers in Big Boi, Killer Mike and Pill are recording an album together according to Maurice Garland. In a post on his website he said, “I was hanging at Stankonia tonight chopping it up with these three. After a night of Black n Milds, rum, vodka and good music…they told me they were working on a new album together. None of these cats have gave me false info before so take this as the stone cold truth. They said they have about a months worth of material ready to go so stay tuned.”
Big Boi and Mike Bigga are no stranger to one another. It was Outkast who introduced Mike to the world back in 2000 on “Snappin’ & Trappin’.” Daddy Fat Sax then went on to sign Killa Kill From The ‘Ville to his Purple Ribbon imprint. Since then, they have fallen out and reconciled. Mike has two other releases slated for 2011 as well, his highly anticipated Pl3dge and recently announced collaboration with Independent heavyweight emcee/producer El-P.
This past week Pill was the latest artist signed to Rick Ross’ growing Maybach Music. Last year 1140: The Overdose was among the most acclaimed mixtapes of the year, even garnering praise from the other half of Outkast, Andre 3000. The tape featured Killer Mike on the Emile produced cut “Westsiders.”
