PREVIEW: Big Boi’s MySpace
LISTEN: “Shutterbug” by Big Boi
Usually I completely ignore Pitchfork’s hot new tracks, because usually they’re really obscure, pseudo-trendy crap. That said, you can find a gem anywhere, and Big Boi’s “Shutterbug” has a great beat. Outkast was a great hip-hop tandem that added quirkiness to hip-hop, and Big Boi was the brass to Ande 3000‘s quirk. I love this track because the rhymes are grizzly, but it’s also got some nice auto-tune harmonies. I forgot about Big Boi for a while, but I’ll take notice the next time around.
