Outkast’s Big Boi opens up about dog-breeding business

The Atlanta rapper has been running a successful dog-breeding and rescue business for nearly 20 years

Outkast member Big Boi has given an interview about his successful dog-breeding business.

The Atlanta rapper has run the business, which also rescues dogs, for nearly 20 years with his brother, James Patton. The business, Pitfall Kennels, operates on a 25-acre facility in the Georgia city, where they breed American Bullys, English Bulldogs and French Bulldogs.

A new film from Live Nation TV, as part of their Business As Usual series, goes behind the scenes at Pitfall with Big Boi and his brother James, where they show the documentary makers around the kennels. Watch the full clip below.


“These are the best, loyal, most family oriented dogs ever,” the rapper says. “We’re here to dispel the stigma that’s been put on them… When all’s said and done, I just want to sit back with my animals in the midst of the trees and the forest and just be peaceful.”

Big Boi’s Instagram feed is often filled with pictures of the puppies that he breeds. Take a look at a few shots below.
