Big Boi ft. Big Rube - General Patton

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Big Boi
Producer:
J Beatz [for Boom Boom Room Productions]
Album:
Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

Growing up on the east coast, I’ve always enjoyed the dopely eclectic work Atlanta has been putting out for over a decade now (it’s hard to imagine another place where artists like Ludacris, Cee-Lo, and Outkast could come from). ATLien Big Boi resides on the edgier side of southern hip-hop, and General Patton is a prime example of why this veteran of the game commands such respect. J Beatz (from Boom Boom Room Productions) puts down a half military ceremony/half Empire Strikes Back, lightsaber duel production that Big Boi, and feature guest Big Rube, use to spit supremely fresh rhymes about about Jesus, their talent - “We killing everything that we attack, special forces of the rap game so you best take heed of that” - and even David Blaine (who knew?). While you won’t be hearing this heavy hitter on the radio (it’s not a single, just an album cut), it has me almost insanely anxious to hear Big Boi’s upcoming album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, due to invade our speakers like General Patton on July 6.
