Outkast‘s Big Boi has debuted his new single, ‘Lines’, which is a collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky.
The track is taken from the hip-hop star’s forthcoming new album ‘Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours’, which is the follow-up to his solo debut, 2010’s ‘Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty’, and is now streaming via his official SoundCloud page.
‘Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours’ was originally scheduled to be released on November 13, but the release date has since been pushed back to December 1. Last month (October 3), Big Boi premiered the first single from the LP, a collaboration with Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.
Earlier this year, the rapper said he was eyeing up another big collaboration in the future after he revealed he was desperate to work with singer Kate Bush. Speaking about the possibility of an unlikely joint project with the ‘Hounds Of Love’ icon, he said: “I want her [Bush] to co-produce something with me. We’d produce a song and write it from scratch. I’d rather get her in a room and not have a plan and just let it come organically – it’s not like I’ve got a song and I’ll just be like, ‘I want you to sing this part right here’.”
In 2011, meanwhile, Big Boi avoided jail time for drug charges after he was reportedly arrested by customs and border patrol police dogs when he left a cruise ship and was found with ecstasy pills, MDMA and Viagra.
