Big Boi is one of the most established rappers right now, as he made a name for himself being part of the southern hip hop duo Outkast alongside André 3000. He has worked hard to get where he is and fans are certainly aware of that fact. It seems his hard work has paid off.
While speaking to Mark Ronson on The FADER Uncovered podcast, the Outkast legend revealed that his collaboration with English singer Kate Bush is finally done. For him, this was a long time coming and something he wanted for a long time.
Big Boi stated that for him to collaborate with the legendary Kate Bush is a dream come true. On top of that, he guarantees fans that they will most definitely love the collaboration.
“I have a monster hit with Kate Bush that I’m just holding,. It’s a dream come true and the people are going to f****** love it. It’s f****** incredible.”
Big Boi also went on to tell Mark Ronson that the possibility for a collaboration started to take shape backstage at one of Kate Bush’s shows. It ended with them exchanging numbers.
“About a year or so pass, and I told her I was coming back, I just said, ‘Hey, when can we do a song?’” he said. “Just send her a text every now and then. I talked to her on the phone, “Hello. Hello. So lovely.” And so I came back and she’s like, “Let’s go to dinner.” So we went and she took me to dinner to this cool little pub place where I had almond cognac. And we was both throwing them back. It was the coolest experience.
So my manager, being the great, great manager he is, he reached out to her manager a couple years ago and was like, ‘Hey, we need to make this happen.’ And I just so happened to have the right song that is f****** phenomenal, and sent it to her.
And it had the words on there and she just had to sing the words. And then I wrote my verse and my boy Go Dreamer wrote her parts and wrote the hook. And it is incredible. It’s incredible.”
We will have to wait and see when Big Boi will drop his collaboration with Kate Bush as fans are certainly eagerly waiting to see how it will turn out to be.
