Added: 20 July 2011 | Read 531 times

One half of the legendary Outkast duo, Big Boi, has announced that he has completed 17 songs for his solo sophomore album Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader.

While speaking to Big Boi revealed that he could literally drop the project today if he wanted to but he would rather wait. “I’mma marinate on it because I’m on the road. I feel good about it, all the music’s sounding great,” he explained.

When asked about the sound and direction of the new album, Big Boi said, “S-A-X-X-X triple assassin, and the beats are going to be as hard hitting as always. I’mma let everything else be a surprise, and just let it speak for itself.”

When pressed for more information about who fans could expect to hear on the album, he would only confirm that singer Janelle Monae would be present.

"She’s somebody whose hand you don’t have to hold," Big Boi said. "She’s got a creative mind, she’s got a great spirit. She’s a good girl and I’m proud of her. She’s making me very proud."

Realistically, expect Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader, the follow-up to last years critically acclaimed Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty, to be released before the end of the year.

Big Boi can next be seen performing at the Golden Gate Park Outside Lands festival, which is taking place August 12th thru the 14th in San Francisco, CA. He will then be heading to Australia for several tour dates.

In related news, the other half of Outkast, Andre 3000, is said to be hard at work on his own solo album.

The Atlanta, GA duo should be getting back together in the studio shortly to begin work on a new Outkast album, which is rumored to be released sometime in 2012.

When Rolling Stone caught up with the STL rep after he got off stage with Taylor Swift, he clarified that that he isn’t exactly doing a full blown project of country music.

“It got kinda twisted,” said the “Country Grammar” rapper. “It’s not actually country, so to speak. I love country music. I respect country music so much that I would never think that I can sit down and just as easy do a country album. That’s not it. That’s just like some country artist saying, ‘Hell, I’m just gonna do a rap album.”
