In a recent interview with SPIN Magazine, Big Boi spoke about working on ATLiens with Andre 3000 plus reminisced on much more. He also mention a joint EP on the way with southern rapper Killer Mike. Take a look at some of what he had to say below.
SPIN: The Cadillac is like the official car brand of OutKast — it’s in the title of your first album, you’ve got “Two Dope Boyz (In A Cadillac)” on ATLiens. How many have you owned over your life?
Big Boi: So I’ve had two Cadillacs, but then I got into Chevy. So I have a 1960, ’61, ’62, ’63, ’64, ’65 Impalas. Killer Mike swindled me out of my 1960 mint-green Impala, and I sold him a Red ’63 Impala. We’d be on the bus in some kind of way after everybody got a drink and [he’d] be like, “Lemme buy that car from you.” Then he’d give me the money on the bus, and when we’d get home, the car would be gone. So he got me two times, but he won’t get me again! Then he sent me all the pictures of the new paint job and the motor and s**t; I don’t wanna see that s**t.
SPIN: Have you been working with him at all lately?
Big Boi: Boy, absolutely! Wait until you hear this new s**t. Killer Mike is busy as hell. I mean, he’ll come straight from the airport and go into the studio and bust on two or three records and come back again the next day. We’re just trying to put as many ideas out there as possible. And me and Killer Mike, we’re gonna put out a little EP after I put out my next solo record or something like that. We’ve been entertaining the idea for a long time and finally got enough songs to where we just said the other night that we’re gonna do it. You getting a scoop there.
