all the ladies say HOOOO

I'm bringing this blog out of hibernation solely to record the following prediction -- Big Boi's Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty will be the album of the summer, if not the year. It comes out on July 6th and it will definitely be the biggest rap album since The Carter III (at least amongst the, um, Pitchfork set).

Check out "Fo Yo Sorrows," which features totally schizophrenic and amazing guest appearances from George Clinton AND Too $hort, plus some dude with way too long dreads.

Maybe even better is "Shine Blockas," which starts out with Big Boi freestyling in a Georgia Wal Mart while buying footies and video games. A currently incarcerated Gucci Mane only makes an appearance in the video in the form of several black and white jpegs.

Both videos are gorgeously shot -- in a rap-video-in-HD kind of way.
