Big Boi feat. Gucci Mane-"Shine Blockas"
About to start calling this album Lucious LEAKfoot. But nah for real, here's another jam from Big Boi's upcoming solo album. He hosted a listening session for the album this past Sunday. I took some pics for Ozone that you can see HERE. It was a laid back affair, no VIP's, no velvet ropes, just soul food and stiff drinks. Everybody there was cool and genuine fans of the music. Which brings me into the next statement...I hardly saw any DJs or radio folks there.
Shouts out to the ones that were there, didn't know (they only did two days of promo) or just couldn't make it. But the rest of ya'll are really tripping. Especially the DJ's and radio folks who haven't shown this project any type of support what so ever. Like the homie DJ Mars was saying on Twitter yesterday, the lack of support people are giving Big Boi is pretty foul. Big Boi has been holding it down for us, ya'll and the Outkast brand period for the last 3 to 6 years and ya'll still waiting on Dre to comeback...as if Big Boi had absolutely nothing to do with the group's successes over the last 16 years.

But yeah, check out the song if you haven't already, shit is jammin. The version I heard a while back had Project Pat on it, but I guess something didn't work out at the end of the day, because his verse has been replaced by an extra verse from Big.
