Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve [Big Boi]

This is your Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one "chill" track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I'm here to make a delivery. Chill…

Today's delivery is brought to you by Big Boi. What can you say about Big Boi that hasn't already been said and how can you not deny his skills. One thing I can say is that most people, including myself, have written Big Boi off in comparison to Andre 3000  and that's truly unfair because he has held his own for his whole career. His latest album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, caught a lot of people off guard on how truly amazing it is all the way through. There really isn't one bad track on this album and its definitely better than Speakerboxxx. The track I'm bringing to you today is called "The Train Pt. 2 (Sir Lucious Left Food Saves The Day" and the fact that it's produced by Organized Noize is one of the main reasons it has made it on to a Daily 2% feature and the fact that it has an awesome rolling beat with some dope experimental sound effects sprinkled in. But enough talk..check out the track and chill….

Download: Big Boi – The Train Pt. 2 (Sir Lucious Left Foot Saves The Day) Ft. Sam Chris (Produced By Organized Noize)

P.S. If you don't have the album you should seriously go BUY IT (using actual money) because its one of the best albums of the year

  • Ok firstoff, i didnt hear a single track YET from bigboi's album.. reason is more or less the same as your intro this post; andre3000 vs big boi. Ur right when u say he held his own, that cant be denied. But on other hand, without versus from andre3000, aquemini and atLiens would be average albums (albums after, never reached that level the first two releases were on (overall). for me, speakerboxx/love below was/is their worst release, by far (..funny enough, it was (i think) their most popular/succesfull album too)
    BUT! ur vision on it made me very curious, so i'll give Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty a chance to prove me wrong..

  • Aight I heard the album..
    My opinion:
    Its an OK album. Big Boi brings to the table what I expected him to bring.. average lyrical skills but his voice and tone make it acceptable to listen to. Production-wise this albums kills (which is probably what surprised me most, b/c he worked, for the largest part, with fairly unknown producers..but that doesnt mean the beats aint banging!)
    tracks like The Train part 2 ^^ .. Fo Ya Sorrow (& Night Night too) are examples of great production.. and .. hmm lets say acceptable lyrical content, but def. not classic material.
    I rate the album: 6.5 // 10

    (please note that I am very cautious with ratings.. for ex.: I'll probably never give an album 10 // 10 rating..)

    • I would agree with your score if you were looking for deeper lyrics. I would give the album a higher score personally though just because it may lack in "deep" lyrics but makes up for it with presentation and production. This album feels as though Big Boi actually worked on this thing for a while and put his foot in it whereas other artists who use different producers just seem to have a random assortment of tracks but not all are on par with the album. Big Boi's album doesn't really have any tracks that need to be skipped and that's kinda of rare in more recent albums. Also, if you recall, some of Outkast's previous albums would have a skippable track or too. I can't be the only one that skips "Mamacita"? I'm not completely disagreeing with your assessment but just saying from a non-deep lyrical POV; it deserves a higher score.

  • hmm…
    something special has occured.
    bigboi's album is growing on me. And this is special… b/c it rarely happens to me. Ofcourse i think I cant make my final decision yet, that takes a few more spins. But..normally, OR I -kinda like- an album and after a few spins, I either love it (rare) or I like it but it slowly fades (most) OR… I'm not feeling the album (or expected – more from it / different) and that opinion remains same, almost always.
    Example of album I hated on first few listenings is mouse & mask by danger(mouse)doom(mf) or Lucy Ford by atmosphere..

    So u can see, that didnt happen to me in quite some time… but more and more tracks i start to really dig. sir Lucious Left Foot. It is funky front 2 back thats for sure.

    • Definitely understand. I usually get tired of an album too or at least my first impression never gets better but this album is just amazing and gets better with more listens. There's so much depth and beat changes and such that it really is a well put together album
