Big Boi’s ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’ Listening Experience
On the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 21, old Atlanta, new Atlanta, underground and mainstream, all came together at Stankonias Studios for Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors with the distinguished Sir Lucious Left Foot better known as Big Boi.
Big Boi’s friends, admirers, and Atlanta’s familiar faces rotated between rooms that streamed classic OutKast tunes until a voice summoned everyone to the main event area.
Slowly the crowd closed in on the blue lit stage set for Big Boi’s band, while Fort Knox’s voice bounced off the walls. The media’s camera flashes run rampant. Everyone’s either drinking, tweeting, or snapping pics with their people.
Among the tastemakers in attendance were Killer Mike, DJ Jelly, DJ Montay, HustleNFlo, Peniece LeGall SESAC, Rico Brooks, Tami Reed of talkingwithtami.com, Kodak boi, Robin Lori photography, Lil Bankhead, DJ Princess Cut, Tamiko Hope and DJ Cooley.
Big Boi rocked the stage with an energetic performance of “Apple of my Eye,” “CPU,” which appeared to be a crowd favorite, and “Mama Told Me,” which featured Kelly Rowland.
Then, Big Boi and his son, Cross, took a seat on stage as he shared nearly the rest of Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.
Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors will hit stores Dec. 11, 2012.
