hip_hop_reviews Review:
Big Boi-Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors

Release date: December 11, 2012

With Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi continued to try to venture off into experimental hip hop. Unfortunately it just doesn't sound that good here. Big Boi seems to have focused more on making his music different than enjoyable here.

The lyrics are good here, but they aren't up to par with Big Boi's usual skill level. There are a few songs on here that are on a high level lyrically ("The Thickets", "Shoes For Running"), but for the most part they're pretty weak and forgettable. Big Boi doesn't really have any specific topic throughout the album, which isn't really a problem, but when the album is this inconsistent, it can be a bit of a problem.

However, the lyrics aren't the main issue, the main issue is the music. The music here just isn't enjoyable for the most part, because as I mentioned earlier, it's primary goal is to sound trippy as opposed to sounding good. There are some great beats here, but most of the beats are average at best. Not to mention that some of these choruses are weak ("Objectum Sexuality"). There are a few standouts however. "The Thickets" is fantastic, and has a great chorus from Sleepy Brown. This song doesn't really have any specific subject matter, but it is great regardless. There are also some duds too, specifically "Raspberries". With "Raspberries", I quickly discovered that Big Boi is an atrocious singer. Literally the whole song is made up of singing, and it's just bad singing.

On the whole, this is a decent album, but it has a lot of flaws with it. The lyrics are weaker than usual, and the beats are weak as well. This is a somewhat enjoyable album, but don't have your expectations too high.

stretch_corleone Also gotta give a Happy Born Day salute to Big Boi, one-half of mega-successful and diverse ATL hip hop duo OutKast, who turns 40 today. Much like his partner-in-rhyme André 3000, Big Boi is a uniquely dexterous, inventive and compelling lyricist that often doesn't get the recognition he deserves. In addition to seven platinum and multi-platinum-selling OutKast albums, Big Boi has put out two critically acclaimed solo albums and has appeared on releases from Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Sean "Diddy" Combs, The Game, Raheem DeVaughn and even Earth, Wind & Fire! I'm hoping and praying that there will finally be an OutKast reunion album released sometime this year. 4mon
