Antwan André Patton, better known by his stage name Big Boi, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, and actor, best known for being a member of hip-hop duo Outkast alongside André 3000. Big Boi has appeared on tracks by Missy Elliott (“All N My Grill”), Trick Daddy (“In da Wind”), Jay-Z (“Poppin’ Tags”), Killer Mike (“ADIDAS”), Beyoncé (“Hip Hop Star”), Brooke Valentine (“Girl ght”), Sleepy Brown (“Margarita”), and Fantasia (“Hood Boy”).
As a solo artist, the MC had a hit in 2005 with “Kryptonite (I’m on It),” one of the year’s best rap singles; it was the lead single from the officially released showcase for his Purple Ribbon label, the eclectic Got Purp?, Volume 2, which featured the likes of Killer Mike and Sleepy Brown, as well as protégé Janelle Monae.
Also involved in films (Star, ATL, OutKast’s Idlewild, Who’s Your Caddy?) and even the stage (he worked with the Atlanta Ballet in 2008), Big Boi prepped his first solo album, the loose and rollicking Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, which was released on DefJam in July 2010.
It debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, issued in December 2012, was just as packed with guest appearances but extended far beyond the realm of rap to involve the likes of Little Dragon, Wavves, and Phantogram, which paved the path for a side project, Big Grams.
Boomiverse, his third studio album, was released in June 2017.
