OutKast's Big Boi - he's the fifty to André 3000's other fifty - is working on a solo album. His partner in rap - and acting - is to work on the record's production.
Boi - real name Antwan André Patton - expects the record to 'drop' in 2007. Of it he comments:
"You're going to get something from every genre, every funk, beat, loop, horn, whistle. We got it all on the record. I got maybe 35 beats already done for it now so I'm just diving in and trying to carve out the pie with the vocals."
What? You can carve with your voice? Any neater than my mum does with a knife? You should come round ours for a roast, Boi.
