Big Boi’s Solo Album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” Quickly Deemed An Outkast To Sales

big boiBig Boi, Antwan André Patton, has released a solo album entitled “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” which has quickly become an outkast to sales.

Big Boi’s new Solo Project was released on July 6th 2010 and had less than average first week sales. His album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” pulled in a measly 60,000 copies sold during it’s first week on the stands.

With the release of “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty,” our fears that Outkast is no more has been made official. Big Boi has now treaded into the waters of Solo Rap Artist and from the looks of it they are clearly troubled waters.

Just for a quick comparison as to how bad 60,000 copies sold is let’s jump focus to Eminem. Eminem who has been a solo-artist for his entire rap-career recently released “Recovery” which sold roughly 710,000 copies during it’s first week. As you can see, Big Boi who is known for his duo with Andre 3000 in Outkast is not favoring so well as a solo artist.

Coming off of a less than stellar Outkast album entitled “Idlewild,” Big Boi has finally cut the cord with his long-time partner Andre 3000. Before rumors began to fly about the Outkast duo breaking up, they released a 2-disc album under the name of Outkast. Now this album entitled “Speakerboxx/The Love Below” consisted of two separate discs in which Big Boi and Andre 3000 worked as solo artists on.

While the record “Speakerboxx/The Love Below” has sold well over 15 million copies (making it the duo’s best selling album to date) and was released under the duo’s name “Outkast”, it was a sign that an inevitable parting of ways was in the making.

Maybe with the failure of his first solo album, Big Boi will rethink leaving Outkast and the dynamic rapping duo will make a comeback, stronger than ever.

If you find yourself still a fan of Big Boi, check out his new solo-album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” which is in stores now.

  1. Not only are your story, your grammar, & your facts completely wrong but I doubt you will even leave this up seeing that you subscribe to the most ignorant of reviewers who equate great art with sales. Let me inform you of a little fact. Since the first airing of Maury Povitch & Jerry Springer society has been on a collision course for HELL! Not that i’m even REMOTELY religious. Fuck all that! But you & the rest of the ignorant world are only attracted to the train wreck…the car crash…the hood rat ass losers of society who glorify IGNORANCE! Why is Big Boi’s album a slow burner? Because the vile, ridiculous, brainless piece of shit known as RECOVERY by Eminem is in the market place & most people can only afford one or 2 cd’s per month IF THAT! This idiot puts out an album that covers every single story the attention hungry little spoiled white boy has already cried about a million times and has another multi million selling project. Look…I am only hating on the hatefulness of the man…this nigga aint learned SHIT and wont use his gift to enlighten anyone because he is a pawn in a larger plan to keep fools like you ignorant. And its working. You buy right into it. When REAL reviewers have given Big a 90 rating GLOBALLY you sit here on your little portal & thumb your nose at Big Boi’s attempt to enrich people through his Hip Hop. You attempt to drag him down instead of celebrate him. There is no one else selling who sacrificed as much for Hip Hop. THEY ALL SELL OUT TO THE SHAKE YOUR ASS JIGGA NIGGA BLING BLING BULLSHIT! And thats not Hip Hop nigga! That’s just sellout ass ignorance…so stank you very much for your narrow minded review…maybe you & the rest of society is content going down the toilet with the rest of the turds but SOME of us will ALWAYS stay oh so fresh & so mother fuckin clean! Unzip your soul & throw it in the wash nigga…your shit is soiled…HEAVY! And you may wonder who I am…I am a co writer on Sir Lucious Left Foot & I say FUCK every reviewer with their eyes on sales. You’re not a SALES reviewer dumb ass…you’re an ALBUM reviewer. Take a class. I think they cover that on the first day.

  2. By the way…from an INSIDER not just talking out of his ass…Outkast is STILL together. They just want to release 2 projects that highlight their own PERSONAL expressions. Def Jam is a slow burn label who grow records organically & allow public opinion to carry the sales. And lastly…there is only 3 or 4 records this year selling even remotely CLOSE to Eminems numbers because the music industry has toppled from over 858 million sales in 1999 to under 399 million in 2009. The record industry is DYING as we know it. So any smart person would equate 62,000 sales of a record that Rolling Stone estimates has been illegally downloaded 450,000 times a day since its release as a success from an audience share standpoint.
