Big Boi Heads To Def Jam
The Outkast rapper speaks on his 'easy-going' transfer...
Big Boihas spoken out about his signing with Def Jam Records. The 35-year-old revealed that label boss L.A. Reid made the whole signing situation such an easy-going process.
Big Boi told Gyant Unplugged: "It was a lot of behind the scenes, label politics. A lot of people don't know, we started at LaFace Records with L.A. Reid, as of maybe three weeks ago Jive gave me the opportunity to take the album elsewhere, I called my big brother L.A. Reid, he said meet me in Miami the next day. We flew to Miami, played him the music, he said let's do it, deal is done.”
He added: "I'm not even concerned about nothing but me. People might say Def Jam doesn't have any hot artists, but he got the number one record with Ludacris last week.
"My album is a musical nuclear bomb. The Outkast album, I can't really say which label it'll be on because I really don't know which label it's gonna fall. I'm gonna put my solo album out first, Dre is working with his solo album right now."
