Creative Geniuses Coming Together...
Big Boi—known for being one half of the almighty Outkast—is a rap god and a living legend. He and Andre 3000 put Atlanta and the South on the map during the East/West Coast rivalry during the 90s, and the two are often regarded as two of the greatest hip-hop artists of all time. Outkast’s work is timeless and has influenced innumerable hip-hop artists today. Following the release of Outkast's final LP “Idlewild,” Big has been working on his successful solo career and stretching his creative legs. During his work on his second LP, “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,” he collaborated with up-and-coming Phantogram on three tracks, and the chemistry was sublime. In fact, so much so that an entire EP was created. This is a manifestation of Big Boi and Phantogram’s limitless creativity, with an experimental flair that expresses a passion for the craft. The collaboration is replete with raw talent and showcases how genre-bending can work perfectly.
Love it already!
Just sampled "fell in the sun" and I love it already. I knew the mash up between these two would be epic. Counting down the days until full album release! Keep up the good work Sarah, Josh, and BB.
About Big Grams
Big Grams is a collaboration between Greenwich, New York indie electronic duo Phantogram (Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter) and rapper Big Boi (Antwan Patton) of Atlanta-based hip-hop duo OutKast, in which the artists allow themselves to venture out of their respective comfort zones and experiment with ideas they wouldn't have explored with their own projects. The two acts connected after Big Boi discovered Phantogram's music via an Internet pop-up ad; he posted about their music online, and the duo, who counted OutKast as one of their biggest influences, responded enthusiastically. They eventually met in person at a music festival in California, and Big Boi invited the duo to work with him. Phantogram contributed to three songs on Big Boi's second solo album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumours, in 2012. The three individuals remained close friends, and in 2014 Barthel announced that they were planning on releasing an EP together. In the summer of 2015, Big Boi and Phantogram officially branded their collaborative project Big Grams, and announced the release of a self-titled seven-song EP featuring guest appearances by Skrillex and Run the Jewels, preceded by first single "Fell into the Sun." ~ Paul Simpson
