Big Boi, Sir Lucious Left Foot: Son of Chico Dusty
It’s a wonder Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Leftfoot made it to stores. Four years of untangling industry red tape has taken its toll, and its missing several early singles, including key tracks with his OutKast partner Andre 3000. What’s left of this long-delayed solo debut is very hit-or-miss. The 15-track, hour-plus album teems with guests – from Jamie Foxx and George Clinton to Janelle Monae and Yelawolf – but generates precious little synergy. However, it has enough highlights, including the futuristic funk of “Shutterbugg,” “Night Night” with B.o.B., and “Shine Blockas” with Gucci Mane, to make the wait seem worthwhile.
