A year after the release of his premier LP, Outkast member Big Boi has given a progress update on his latest LP, Daddy Fat Saxxx: Soul Funk Crusader. On Thursday night, the artist tweeted about his collaboration with Swedish indie-pop group Little Dragon.
“Just cut 2 MONSTER Jams with @LittleDragon for the New Daddy Fat Saxxx LP #weoutchea.”
Big Boi also tweeted a video of himself with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, available for viewing below. He says, “We are live in Stankonia studios… I wish I could let this bitch out tonight, but y’all have to wait. Daddy Fat Saxxx: Soul Funk Crusader, coming soon! We just made history.”
Between the latest Little Dragon collaborative effort and earlier work done alongside Modest Mouse, Big Boi’s latest effort has caught the attention of critics and fans alike.
“It’s going to be S-A-X-X-X triple unadulterated funk to the extremest level. Straight lyrical assassin, and the beats are going to be as hard hitting as always,” said Big Boi in an interview for Junior Online.“I’mma let everything else be a surprise, and just let it speak for itself.”
The album is rumored for release at the end of 2011, though after difficulties with his previous LP, Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty‘s release, no one is holding their breath for a solid release date just yet. For now, Big Boi, Modest Mouse, and Little Dragon fans alike can only wait for official word on the latest LP.
