from Sir Lucious Left Foot Billboard Bonus Tracks (Def Jam, 2010)

It’s rare that a studio outtakes post is necessary on the day of an albums release but Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Leftfoot, which drops today, has been marinating for close to three years in the Jive vaults and a lot of excess has been trimmed from the final release. Apart from the two blacked out Andre tracks, “Dubbz” feels like the only essential omission here. Backbone has an outstanding rap voice and more artists should be taking advantage of it. That poorly executed Mary J. song appears for comprehension’s sake alone. I also posted the Billboard bonus tracks because I had no idea that Billboard sold mp3s until I heard about there being Billboard-exclusive bonus tracks. “Theme Song” was originally leaked to the web last year as “Ringtone.” Buy the album wherever you can.

The double purple vinyl seems to have been pushed back to July 20th.

    Can one not ask questions via the current iteration of Tumblin’ Erb? I wanted to present you with the painfully confounding challenge of listing the top twenty DF-related albums. In order. Twenty, because the more obvious ten allows you to skate by just reeling off the first generation releases.

  2. Ben Laden Says:

    Really like the album, not much of a surprise but happy to have it!

  3. hl Says:

    Shine Blockas remix? Dope…never heard that…

  4. Syl Says:

    With or without additional southern rap greats, Shine Blockas is pure Pitchfork shill, a cash-in to the “Intl. Players Anthem” phenom. This album needed Royal Flush, perhaps the first pure rap song (i.e. devoid of crossover aspirations) that Outkast has created together since So Fresh, So Clean. Jive is incredible. No label has inflicted so much creative damage to rappers over such a long period of time.

  5. GG Says:

    Shine remix is ill!

  6. DR. NO Says:

    With or without additional southern rap greats, Shine Blockas is pure Pitchfork shill

    ^^^

    What the f*ck is a pitchfork? You show your own true colors with that kind of comment. ‘Shine Blockas’ still knocks.

  7. ri067953 Says:

    Man Syl, you are thinking way too much. I heard the whole album on Big Boi’s myspace and I think the album is dope. Not to mention, “Shine Blockas” always has me doing 100+ mph on the highway when its on rotation. Isn’t that what good southern hip hip is supposed to do???

  8. mike Says:

    picked up my copy today.. shit is dope.. ‘Twan keeps making some good ass music.. kudos to all involved and looking forward to see what mr. benjamin has up his sleeve as well.

  9. brad Says:

    Definitely buying this, but I’m waiting for the purple vinyl

  10. nothing to do with anything Says:

    Doesn’t Pitchfork decide what constitutes as Pitchfork-approved music? They started reviewing Gucci in what, late 2009? I’m not sure where the Pitchfork bait lies in any of the songs on this album or the ones you mentioned. Did the Clipse do anything THAT different (as in, different from what they were already doing) on “We Got It For Cheap” to make Pitchfork like it? I don’t think Berhianandnan ever wrote a review on 2005-era G-Unit material saying that the beats were good but it needs more coke talk and they simply chose to pick up the ball.

    I doubt that Big Boi, UGK, Gucci, etc. ever set in the studio and go, “Ok, today I’m going to record a song that will appeal to white people who found about rap after they started college.”

  11. Chaz Says:

    So, can we take that Big Boi interview at face-value and believe he and Dre are on good terms?

    Also any word on what the tracklisting was supposed to look like with the two Andre songs?

  12. Chris Cool Says:

    pitchfork likes anything kast related. they said b.o.b. was the best song of the decade.

    i thought dubbz was dope but from what i saw that song aint get positive feedback. backbone killed it tho.

  13. Soft Money Says:

    Shine Blockas is pure Pitchfork shill, a cash-in to the “Intl. Players Anthem” phenom.

    No. Having Joanna Newsom, Conor Oberst, and “Icelandic alt-pop singer Patty Crash” on your album is “pure Pitchfork shill”.

    Jive is incredible. No label has inflicted so much creative damage to rappers over such a long period of time.

    That’s probably accurate, though.

    “I doubt that Big Boi, UGK, Gucci, etc. ever set in the studio and go, “Ok, today I’m going to record a song that will appeal to white people who found about rap after they started college.”

    Well Bun does make songs with Kweli.

    But really stfu about pitchfork and enjoy “shine blockers” for what it is.

  15. Syl Says:

    Enjoying “Shine Blockas” for what it is is to enjoy it as an inferior reproduction of the formula that made “Intl Player’s Anthem” a crossover hit. It’s a shame it has become the album’s designated “standout.”

    “Shine Blockas” always has me doing 100+ mph on the highway when its on rotation. Isn’t that what good southern hip hip is supposed to do???

    No. Good southern hip-hop is supposed to make you want to drive at 10+ mph.

  16. scjoha Says:

    Now if only someone leaked the complete Jive archives (or at least the sessions for UGK’s Dirty Money). These fuckers must have a few gems there, probably without knowing or caring about it.
    What else is the internet good for?

  17. MF Says:

    Discussions about rap ‘n’ Pitchfork are so 2005/2006, man.

    I really wish Big had just got Sleepy in do all the hooks on this shit.

  18. MF Says:

    Instead, let’s look at a review by some British hack :

    http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4123/4758328231_e79e21181e.jpg

    It’s in the southern hip-hop tradition, but as a rapper he lacks Nelly’s winning way with a one-liner. Aside from the Jaunty Daddy Fat Sax, musically he’s no Bubba Sparxx.

  19. Hele Fitta Says:

    > I really wish Big had just got Sleepy in do all the hooks on this shit.

    I think Sam Chris does a GREAT job on his two tracks -oh, and noz I believe that’s him on the hook on “fo yo sorrows”, not george. Anyway, who is that dude? I would give his solo a chance based on his work on here.

  20. MAYNHOLUP! Says:

    anyone else not THAT happy wit dis album? only listened 3 times doe mayn i been bumpin LITO

  21. MAYNHOLUP! Says:

    noz no shots but your review barely talks about de record it juss reshashes shit i assume most cb readers alreddy kno. i get u wrote it for npr an people will enjy de backstory but in my mind dis albm musically isnt that thowed. de rapping is on point but theres far too little of it and alot of songs suffer from terrible unforgivable guest choruses (wussup vonnegut). i was juss hopin for a rap album where i wouldnt have to fast forward to de verses .

  22. Ramon Says:

    It’s alright. Borderline overrated but that’s because I can’t remove myself from all the eager college kids flocking to its Yankee Hotel Foxtrot success story…maybe because the thing is so adventurous and full of sonic wonderment and thus easier to connect to because the actual rapping is consistently buried?

    You said it Mayn: fuck a lot of the guest choruses.

    I also hate to say it, but the best single verse is Dre’s on “Lookin For Ya,” which is also the best song from the litter.

  23. Big Boi Explains Where Missing Tracks Should Go On “Leftfoot” Says:

    [...] He speaks further about it in the above CNN interview. So there you have it folks. But where to get the cuts? [...]

  24. jazzy Says:

    Looks like Big Boi got a great album

  25. ri067953 Says:

    “No. Good southern hip-hop is supposed to make you want to drive at 10+”

    hahahaha…Maybe if you live in Texas and drink that purple shit or if you driving a bucket.

  26. noz Says:

    “Enjoying “Shine Blockas” for what it is is to enjoy it as an inferior reproduction of the formula that made “Intl Player’s Anthem” a crossover hit. It’s a shame it has become the album’s designated “standout.””

    People were sampling soul records prior to “Players Anthem.”

  27. no nickname Says:

    hold up MF don’t suggest that the reviewer is ignorant because he is british, it’s just because he’s a moron.

  28. Nothing to do with anything Says:

    No. Good southern hip-hop is supposed to make you want to drive at 10+ mph

    ^^^

    Ever listen to Pastor Troy, Three 6 Mafia, Jeezy? The *other* half of Ugk or Ball and G’s discography? Do Shawty Redd, Mannie Fresh and Drumma Boy make 10 mph music? Fuckouttahere

  29. MLKshake Says:

    -cosign Mayn
    = would like to see CB review on the record.

  30. vish Says:

    my album of the year so far.

    plx review!

  31. noz Says:

    I like the album a lot you guys. I don’t think it’s a mindblowing masterpiece but it’s really fucking solid and I will listen to it all summer. It’s Big Boi rapping well over great production. Not sure what else you need from the review.

  32. OutKast/Dungeon Family – Do It All Together Now « Artificial Songs Says:

    [...] While waiting for a group effort: Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty is in stores now. The whole album can be streamed right now on Big’s Myspace. More goodies at CBRAP. [...]

  33. josiah Says:

    no kate bush on the album?

  34. nothing to do with anything Says:

    Is the same on “Daddy Fat Sax” the same one as “Best of Me”?

  35. nothing to do with anything Says:

    sample*

  36. joe tactical Says:

    this syl guy is a fucking idiot. if you pay attention to pitchfork at all you are a dumbass.

  37. EWOULDBLOCK Says:

    Backbone’s got one my favorite verses on the DF album, basically on the strength of his voice (“you better beLIEVE it!”). Weren’t you pondering a post on “Concrete Law” at some point? I’d like to read that.

  38. Urkel Moe Dee Says:

    “Theme Song” and the “Shine Blockas” remix are also on the “Deluxe” version of the CD, which also includes a DVD with five videos. It’s $11.99 at Best Buy until the 11th, after which it probably won’t be worth copping.

  39. LCR Says:

    Pardon my ignorance, why didn’t Dubbz make the album?

    Also wished Witchdoctor was on the album somewhere…

  40. Chris Cool Says:

    @nothing to do with anything

    daddy fat sax samples xplosion from stankonia.

  41. Cherise Mulrain Says:

    I like your blog!
    Check out this rapper from DC named 431 he’s bringing positive hip-hop with real lyrics back on the map and he’s only 18! His album Cloud 10 is about to drop on the 23rd here’s the video to his single “Mona Lisa”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5aPd5ePbko Please Support Real Hip-Hop!

  42. Saik Says:

    Noz thanks for the bonus trax. I’ve been rocking this CD for a few days now on auto-repeat, just waiting to buy the purple vinyl. Overall, I’d say it’s a solid 8.5/10. Not but one (Shine Blockas/z/ers/wtfever it is) club banger that will get a lot of radio play on mainstream top 40, but that’s A-OK with me. I would have liked Witchdoctor and Andre3k to be all over this record, but I can’t complain about a new Big Boi CD. Now if OutKast will just send us another CD within the next year or two, I’ll be OK!

  43. day Says:
