Big Boi-Gossip ft. UGK and Big K.R.I.T.

It’s a Southern party for Big Boi’s first single from his next solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, as the Outkast member grabs newbie Big K.R.I.T along with Houston old heads Bun B and Pimp C (from beyond the grave).

Heavy bass and a simple vocal sample anchor the track, whilst a few additional hits of keys, synths and electronic samples interject themselves throughout for little injections of liveliness, and the result is a beat that feels very much new-school (very close to something The Cool Kids would produce) but with a heavy Southern swing thrown into the mix. The raps are strong from top to bottom, courtesy of a series of excellent flows from each artist, in addition to Big Boi’s wordplay, K.R.I.T.’s slick delivery, and Bun’s effortless presence. A solid single that’ll play well enough in the mainstream crowd, whilst satisfying the hip-hop heads.
