Oct 24 , 2018 Doors: 7 p.m. Show: 7:30PM
The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome Big Boi for a special conversation on his illustrious career, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Artistic Director Scott Goldman. One of history's tightest and most clever rhyme mavericks, Big Boi's indelible influence courses throughout two generations of rap music. As one-half of OutKast, Big Boi has achieved seven GRAMMY Awards, sold over 25 million albums, and created a string of music's most influential work, including Aquemini, Stankonia, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below—which went RIAA Diamond and made the duo the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the GRAMMY for “Album of the Year.”
Big Boi's 2010 solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and received unanimous critical acclaim, with Pitchfork proclaiming it one of the "100 Best Albums of the Decade 'So Far'" and topping year-end lists from Time, Paste, Vibe, and more. His 2012 follow-up Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors enamored tastemakers and fans alike and boasted collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Killer Mike, Kid Cudi, and more. In 2015, Big Boi collaborated with Phantogram to create supergroup Big Grams. Their debut self-titled album was released to critical and fan acclaim.
Recently, the seven-time GRAMMY Award-winning, RIAA diamond-certified musician celebrated his third full-length solo album, BOOMIVERSE. The project includes hit track “All Night,” which was featured in Apple’s Animoji commercial, as well as “In The South” featuring Gucci Mane and Pimp C and singles “Mic Jack” featuring Adam Levine and “Kill Jill” featuring Killer Mike & Jeezy. Big Boi previously unveiled the slick and sexy video, “Chocolate” featuring Trozé, to wide fanfare from media outlets and fans worldwide.
