Big Boi promises 'nothing but the funk'
Outkast's Big Boi promises his new album 'Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader' will be ''nothing but the funk''.

Outkast's Big Boi promises his new album will be "nothing but the funk".

The rapper has recently finished his second solo album, 'Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader', and claims it is his most groove filled effort to date, featuring guests including Janelle Monae, Jamie Foxx and Gucci Mane.

He told "It's absolutely nothing but the funk. It's 'Daddy Fat Saxxx: Triple X' so you know it's going to be nasty - get down dirty, gritty, nasty, grimy, sl***y funk. It's gonna be that sl*t funk.

"Long live the funk and nothing but the funk. It's all about the music, so I've just been in the studio trying to put my ideas down."

Big Boi - who makes up Outkast with Andre 3000 - also explained how he used his many contributors to make a "musical gumbo," a 'gumbo' being a stewed dish common in the southern US.

He added: "Making the whole album was organic. Basically, if I was recording, I'd use other artists as instruments, as ingredients to my stew - my funk gumbo.

"So if I'm working on a record, I might just hear something and be like, 'Wow, so-and-so might sound good on here,' and I'll reach out for them and they come on in."

'Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader' will be released later this year.
