This mixtape of mashups Big Boi and The Black Keys sounds like the songs were supposed to be like this. Check it out.

Click here to listen to and download the mixtape courtesy of  The boundaries continue to be pushed in hip-hop in 2010.

It’s a shame Big Boi’s album didn’t get the type of attention it deserved. It was up to Outkast standards. Check out the video for The Train, Pt. 2.

Sir Lucious Left Foot…The Son of Chico Dusty is in stores now.  And here’s how Big Boi gets down live (Follow Us ft Vonnegutt):


Big Boi just dropped his remix to Tangerine and he added Bun B, TI (11 more months homie…) and Rick Ross. Check it out.

Is 2010 the best Summer ever for hip-hop? These releases from Eminem, Drake, The Roots, Big Boi and Rick Ross are making a strong argument.

Can you come up with a better slate of Summer releases of rap albums than these:

Recovery – Eminem

Single:  Not Afraid

Standout track (1 of many): 25 to Life

Thank Me Later – Drake

Single:  Drizzy hit several markets, dropping Find Your Love for the ladies and Over for the clubs.

Standout track:  Too many to pick, but Fancy is about to BLOW UP!

Sir Luscious Left Foot…The Son of Chico Dusty – Big Boi

Single:  Shutterbugg

Standout track:  Turns Me On (ft. Andre 3000 and Sleepy Brown)

How I Got Over The Roots

Single:  Dear God 2.0 (arguably the weakest track on the album)

Standout track: Doin’ It Again ft. John Legend

Teflon Don – Rick Ross

Single:  Super High ft. Ne-Yo

Standout track (again 1 of many):  Free Mason ft. Jay-Z

Still to Come:  Some heavy hitters are lined up to drop later in the Summer.  Jeezy is killing it with Lose My Mind and EVERYBODY is saying the Kanye album is a classic.  It’s unclear whether T.I. will deliver.

TM 103 (Game Over) – Jeezy

Good Ass Job – Kanye West

King Uncaged – T.I.

Follow Us is the latest Big Boi track to leak from his upcoming album Sir Lucious Left Foot…The Son of Chico Dusty

Lookin’ 4 Ya – Big Boi ft. Andre 3000 and Sleepy Brown

Big Boi = Dope.  Andre 3000 = Dope.  Outkast?  Priceless.  Big Boi and Andre bring some more space funk while Sleepy Brown smooths it out.  Damn.  I miss Outkast, but I’m not mad at Big Boi…Click here for the download (thank you NahRight)
