Seven-time Grammy Award-winning artist Big Boi is returning to New Zealand for two headline performances in March 2018.
The Atlanta-born rapper, producer, songwriter - and one half of Outkast - will play the Studio in Auckland on Friday, March 16 and Meow in Wellington on Saturday, March 17.
One of music’s greatest rhyme mavericks, Big Boi’s indelible influence remains unwavered across two generations of rap music. He released his third full-length solo album, BOOMIVERSE earlier this year, containing the singles ‘In The South’ with Gucci Mane & Pimp C, ‘Mic Jack’ feat. Adam Levine, ‘Kill Jill’ feat. Killer Mike & Jeezy, and ‘Chocolate’ feat. Trozé resonates with media and fans worldwide.
Big Bois first 2010 solo record, SIR LUCIOUS LEFT FOOT: THE SON OF CHICO DUSTY peaked at #3 on the US charts and received unanimous critical acclaim with Pitchfork proclaiming it one of the "100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far"; and topping year-end lists from the likes of Time Magazine and Paste. His 2012 follow-up VICIOUS LIES AND DANGEROUS RUMOURS enamoured tastemakers and fans alike and featured collaborations with A$AP Rocky, Killer Mike, Kid Cudi, and more. In 2015, Big Boi collaborated with Phantogram to create supergroup Big Grams, releasing a widely acclaimed self-titled debut album.
As one-half of Outkast, Big Boi released a string of music’s most influential works, including AQUEMINI, STANKONIA, SOUTHERNPLAYALISTICADILLACMUZIK and SPEAKERBOXXX/THE LOVE BELOW - the latter making the duo the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the Grammy for ‘Album of the Year’.
Don’t miss one of hip-hop’s greatest phenomenons up close and personal this March.
