The legendary OG of Outkast lore drops off his new single from his upcoming album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. Though, not as mercurial as his always elusive comrade, 3 Stacks, Big Boi has always had a knack for delivering us something different. With a self admitted electro-funk oriented sound, “Lines” is a perfect mashup of hip-hop drums, rock solid rapping, and some wild instrumentation. Rocky starts the track off with his familiar double-time flow, while Big Boi finishes the collaboration with a Southern-twinged, sharp tongued message for his haters and detractors. After listening, most are probably thinking “How the hell did we not see a collab between these two coming?” Their verses and flows are eerily similar (obviously Sir Luscious paved the way for A$AP), and in the case of “Lines”, dope as hell. Powered by a hauntingly ill hook and bridge from Phantogram, this dope cut has us pretty damn pumped for Big Boi’s next release.
