Big Boi is hard at work on his upcoming sophomore solo album Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader, which he plans on dropping at the end of the year. Speaking with Junior Online, the Outkast member explained that he’s 17 songs deep in the recording process, and could put out the album “tomorrow” if so chose.

“Oh man, it’s going to be S-A-X-X-X triple unadulterated funk to the extremest level,” he said. “Straight lyrical assassin, and the beats are going to be as hard hitting as always. I’mma let everything else be a surprise, and just let it speak for itself. I’m 17 songs into it now, everything is sounding phenomenal. I could put it out tomorrow if I wanted to, but I’mma marinate on it because I’m on the road. I feel good about it, all the music’s sounding great… I’m just really stayin’ busy out here killin’ it.” 

Sir Lucious Left Foot confirmed Janelle Monae’s appearance on the LP, and explained that he’s also working on her album at the moment.

“We’re working on her next album now, and I can tell you that she’ll be on the new Daddy Fat Sax album… You know, to be able to bring new talent to the game… man, that’s what it’s all about. I really take pride in artists that take pride in themselves, you know what I’m sayin’?” he continued. “She’s somebody whose hand you don’t have to hold. She’s got a creative mind, she’s got a great spirit. She’s a good girl and I’m proud of her. She’s making me very proud.”
