Big Boi Drops Animated Artwork for ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’

Big Boi Vicious Lies Dangerous Rumors
Def Jam

Big Boi‘s new album ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’ has an innovative animated album cover. The Outkast rapper just dropped the artwork and track listing for the record, which arrives on Dec. 11.

The cover features an illustration of Boi’s face on a purple background. His mouth opens and his eyes blink and peer from side to side. Given that most music is released digitally these days, this type of animated image might be the future of album artwork.

All but two of the 17 tracks on the deluxe edition feature guest artists. Kelly Rowland appears on ‘Mama Told Me,’ while Phantogram and A$AP Rocky guest on ‘Lines.’ Ludacris, T.I., Kid Cudi and B.o.B also make cameos on the record.

One artist you won’t hear on ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’ is Andre 3000. Last week, Big Boi called out his former Outkast partner, saying that Andre was more concerned with filming razor commercials than getting together in the studio. Big Boi explained, “He could’ve been on any song he wanted to. I gave the motherf—–r about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy. He said he had to do some Gillette s—. No, for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.”

Big Boi later took back his comments and claimed he was joking. The track listing is impressive even without Andre. Check it out below.
