Big Boi and Andre 3000 essentially invented the art of genre-bending back in the Outkast days, so it’s only fitting that the ATL legend would continue to push sonic boundaries on his new single Lines. For the beat long time production partners Organized Noize craft an eclectic beat that’s part rock, part Southern rider and all dope. With a beat like that Sir Lucious had to feel obligated to travel far and wide for his guest features, adding an opening verse from Harlem’s A$AP Rocky and vocals from indie rock’s Phantograms to his own always on point rhymes. With a single like this I think we can expect Big Boi to continue to ignore boundaries on his upcoming album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors, due out December 11.
