Favourite moment: December 1st 2010 @
Opening act(s): Theophilus London @
Forget the fact he is one half of one of hip hop's greatest duo's (on a par with eric b n rakim or gangstarr) in his days of OutKast, Big Boi aka Antwan Patton aka Daddy Fat Sax aka Billy Ocean aka Sir Luscious Left Foot Son of Chico Dusty is a hip hop superstar in his own right.
Just one solo album after an already impressive career with his partner Andre 3000 and Atlanta, Georgia's favourite Rhymesayer is an established force to be reckoned with. The fact that his performance tonight lacked maybe the musical backing that you may have expected from one of rap's most creative minds in that just Khujo (of Goodie Mob fame) as wing man and Cutmaster Swift (an impressive dj) on the ones n twos, did nothing to deter a true fan of this ATLien from completely loving the show. This is credit to the charisma and slickness in his delivery on record as most were there to witness the fast paced witty social commentary he spits on classic cuts like Elevators, B.O.B, Mrs Jackson etc being replicated in a live setting.
Along with the above mentioned OutKast fan favourites, a few other verses from their back catalogue were covered. Maybe the highest compliment (aside from the fact that an OutKast tune cant be done in entirerity without Andre) is that the strongest parts of the set were joints off his solo album. Fo Yo Sorrows being an instant crowd pleaser with its bouncy tempo. The vibe seemed to fit perfect with Shutterbugg too, particularly considering the dance nature of Theophilus London (a thorughly enjoyable hip hop guy from the states supporting).
As with a fair few hip hop shows, sometimes feels like it was too short (no pun intended - the bay area mc being one of big boi's icons), but when you reel off the tracks he performed (even with some being a verse here and a verse there), you realise he covered a massive chunk of some of the finest in music in the last two decades - let alone rap/hip hop/r'n'b/urban - whatever label you want to put on it.
Big Boi is indeed a rarity - already a legend, but still young enough to seem very current/relevant/hungry/vibrant/energetic - you get the picture.
Would definitely be up for seeing him when/if he returns to these shores (hopefully with his partner in crime).
