"Me and 'Dre were on the conference call [recently]," Big Boi said to MTV News. "Hes working on his album; my album is done. We're gonna wait until the top of the year January or February to put it out. Then 'Dre is gonna come hit y'all, and [then] we're gonna do the Outkast album. So y'all gonna get three records from the 'Kast next year."
Big Boi's solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: Son of Chico Dusty, was originally slated for a fourth quarter release. The lead single "Something's Gotta Give," [click to listen] featuring Mary J. Blige, spent six weeks on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Arista never publicly stated a reason for the album's delay, and the single peaked at the number 83 spot, before completely disappearing from the charts two weeks ago.
