Big Boi Talks Working on a New Album, The State of Hip-Hop and Meeting Tupac in Reddit AMA Discussion

Big Boi is the latest artist to tackle Reddit’s Ask Me Anything discussion with fans, which is known for its typically candid and revealing nature. While naturally many hoped for some sort of news on Outkast, the rapper stuck to safer topics like his creative process, what artist he’d love to collaborate with but hasn’t yet, how he balances work and family, a really awesome story about the first time he met Tupac and his evolution as a rapper. Big Boi also revealed that he’s already hard at work on his third solo album, which he stated he definitely plans on experimenting more on. Take a look at some of his best responses below, as well as his new video for “Thom Pettie” above, and tour dates for his “Shoes For Running” tour with Killer Mike.
