Big Boi and Phantogram are getting together for a new album. The forthcoming collaborative album titled Big Grams will unite one of hip-hop’s most respected names with New York electronic rock duo Phantogram.
The release looks at the moment to be an EP, but Big Boi has hinted that the project might become a bigger, full-length effort. We will have some time to monitor developments, as Big Grams is not expected to hit shelves until after the release of Big Boi’s next solo album. The rapper explained “We’ve got songs which were already recorded when we were working on my last record. Phantogram comes down to Stankonia and we camp out for like a week and trade vibes. They go back to New York, then they come back down and we just keep the process going.”
Part of the megahit act OutKast, which recently reunited at Coachella, Big Boi has been keeping busy on the tour circuit. Phantogram have also been regulars at clubs, festivals and block parties. They recently released their 2014 summer tour schedule.
