Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty review

Big Boi’s solo album proves to be simply faultless

It is now more than 15 years that millions of the genre fans associate the southern rap school with the name of Big Boi, known by the duo OutKast. His unique style, a pleasant voice timber and attention to details have made Big Boi not only oone of the best southern school representatives but also that of the rap on the whole. As the duo OutKast together with Andre 3000 they released four incredibly successful albums and in 2003 each of them recorded material separately. The result was the album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (the first part was Big Boi’s, the second one Andre 3000’s), then the 2006’s album Idlewild followed, after which the guys decided to record a solo album each, and then another work together. Although Big Boi started writing and recording new material three years ago his album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is released only this summer after several delays which have to do with his differences with his label. Nevertheless it was worth waiting for it – Big Boi’s album proves to be simply faultless.

Nothing spoils the success of Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

The conflict between Big Boi and the label Jive ended in the artist’s leaving it, though OutKast is still signed with the label. Therefore three singles with Andre 3000 initially recorded for Big Boi’s album have been excluded from Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Luckily there is a big choice of great tracks on the record, and the loss has not at all spoiled its success. The album opens with an impressive introduction Feel Me followed by a contagious number Daddy Fat Sax. The rapper is joined by Sleepy Brown and joi on Turns Me On – it is a very stylish, melodious and delicious composition whereas the first official single off the album Shutterbugg featuring Cutty is built on a deep bass beat and pleases with high notes on chorus. The track General Patton (Patton is Big Boi’s real surname) proves to be one of the most monumental on the album, it is built on a choir solemn singing and contagious tubes. One of the highlights is Tangerine featuring T.I. and Khujo goodie: sultry guitars and an amazing contemporary beat will leave nobody indifferent. Such tracks as Hustle Blood performed with Jamie Foxx and Be Still refined with Janelle Monae’s splendid vocals. The traditional song about not a very pious life is Night Night (featuring B.o.B and Joi), and Gucci Mane joins Big Boi on an optimistic number Shine Blockas in a major key (another version of this song also concludes the album). For dessert the rapper has left a melodious and very stylish track Back Up Plan and a danceable hip hop number Theme Song.

The irreproachable preciseness of true professionals

Charismatic and self-confident, Big Boi knows very well how to please hip-hop fans: his rhymes are witty and unexpected, and the themes are topical as always. Besides, he has also played the role of a producer more than once, he is well aware of all fashionable trends and can work productively both independently and as part of a team. Awesome samples and tunes, soft, harmonious arrangements are present in abundance on Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Everyone can find a song for one’s taste among the 16 full-length tracks but all of them are carried out with the irreproachable preciseness of true professionals. Despite the greater part of the compositions being performed with guest artists, it is always Big Boi that remains the central figure of this monumental act. Working on Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty has absorbed the artist so much and has lasted so long that he has already announced the preparation of a follow-up record, although it is still unknown when it is going to be released. Anyways, Big Boi has fulfilled his part of the contract perfectly well, now it is Andre 3000’s turn to do the same.
