Outkast is one of the more popular hip-hop duos in the industry, where Big Boi is one part of the group. That said, he landed himself in hot water recently after he used a racial slur while cussing out a gas station cashier.

A video posted on Instagram on November 24 captured OutKast rapper Big Boi engaging in a heated exchange with a gas station cashier, during which he seemed to use a racial slur.

In the clip, Big Boi is seen at the counter attempting to pay for his purchases, which include multiple beanies and a bouquet of roses. A disagreement ensues between the rapper and the cashier over the number of hats being purchased, prompting Big Boi to assert, “I don’t give a f***, I’m rich!”

Following this, he turns away from the cashier, who appears to be of Asian descent, and makes a derogatory and racist remark about the cashier, as he calls him Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid.


Mr. Miyagi, that n-gga got me f***** up

This incident is not the first instance of a rapper making anti-Asian remarks. In 2021, YG faced controversy when his song “Meet the Flockers” was removed from YouTube due to allegedly racist lyrics that targeted a Chinese neighborhood. Regardless, we hope Big Boi will eventually learn to become a better person.
