Stream Big Boi's New Album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, a Week Early

Post title says it all, eh? If you didn't already get how geeked I am for Big Boi's album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, then feel free to peruse the backlogs of my ravings.




Or you could stream the album, due out July 6, in its' entirety right now and make the conclusion for yourself that yeah, dudeman's got all sorts of the rad going on over the course of this disc.


Head here to give a listen now. Then scroll a wee bit down for a new tune from the album. Hustle Blood sounds like Boi lassoed Sleigh Bells to whisper the intro...and lead you straight towards the boudoir. Only it's Jamie Foxx on the crooning and Lil Jon produced the track. Super sexy!


Pre-order Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty here.

Beastly Bits #103

This has been such a long week. Anyone else feeling the grind?


Thank the beastly heavens that it's Friday...don't know if I could have lasted one more workday in this hustle. What I can tolerate is the radness below. We ride!


Aussie entity, Triple J, chose their most loved artists. Do your faves make the cut? link


Arcade Fire's new album, The Suburbs, may be released with eight different covers. The Canadian group's third studio effort is due out on August 2. link


Fenech-Soler remixed Sunday Girl's cover of Laura Branigan's Self Control. It is both amazing and free for you to enjoy as well. Download it after I ramble on a bit more.


Read an interview with Big Boi. Love that dude so much. link


Today marks one year since the untimely passing of Michael Jackson. RIP forever.

Mick Boogie, Big Boi and Rick Ross - SouthernplayalisticMaybachMusic (free mixtape!)

What a mouthful. An awesome, fresh to death, masterful mouthful. Mick Boogie pairs up two heavy hitters on SouthernplayalisticMaybachMusic, his new (and free) mixtape with the Atlantian Big Boi and Miami's finest, Rick Ross. With both dudes dropping full-length EPs in the next few weeks, it's pretty much a no-brainer to mix these men up...a no-brainer, and a really stinking rad one at that.



The mixtape courses over 12 tracks, seeing each of the gentlemen spitters' offering up verses to one or the other's original tunes...and good ones too, like ATLiens, Shine Blockas and Player's Ball.


Grab the free mixtape here, read the track list, then jump after for a sweet slice that I find quite yummy.

2. Big Boi f/ Rick Ross - Return Of The G
3. Rick Ross f/ Big Boi - Super High

Big Boi - Shutterbug (new video!)

No matter what you call him (Daddy Fat Sacks, General Patton, Sir Lucious L. Leftfoot, The Son of Chico Dusty, Billy Ocean, Hot Tub Tony, Francis the Savannah Chitlin' Pimp), Big Boi is back and fresh to death in his new video for hot summa single, Shutterbug. Hard to believe he's only now putting out his debut solo album, Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, but hey, if radness takes this long to compile, we're spot on OK with it.



Highly anticipated and hotly-tipped, thanks to tracks like this and Fo Yo Sorrows, along with jumping on tunes with Janelle Monae and B.o.B., Big Boi's got us anxious to hear what he comes out with next.


Check out his puppetry, college red-cup kegger, head floating new video for Shutterbug below.


Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is out July 6 via Def Jam. (pre-order)

Janelle Monae - Tightrope (new video!)

Little known fact: Janelle Monae was probably somewhere between the 3rd to 7th artist I ever chose to feature back when I started the site. With a dose of Motown and a splash of other-worldly awesomeness, the Grammy-nominated singer has deservedly found herself a spot in Beastonia many a time before. And today, we roll on with our favorite ArchAndroid and her new video.



Monae's debut EPs, which came in the shape and titles of various Metropolis: Chases, were a mix of futuristic retro radness, with the ever-stylish gal donning the moniker of Cindi Mayweather, the album's protagonistic maven.


Now, with the May 18 release of her freshman full-length, fittingly dubbed The Arch Android, Janelle jumps back in time to hit us with an outerspacey ride of a wild time. She's collaborated with Big Boi on lead single, Tightrope, and she's just released the visuals to the dancey feel-good vibes of the album cut.


Watch her get tip-toe-ingly terrific in the video below.
