An unfortunate knee injury may have thwarted Big Boi‘s “Shoes For Running” tour, but it hasn’t stopped him from further promoting his Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors LP. Today, he returns with a visual for track 2 from the project, “The Thickets.”
Backed by a live band and singer Phantogram, Big Boi closed out last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! with a performance of Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors track “CPU.” The crowd was receptive to the pinch of funk added by the live band’s brass section to the otherwise synth-heavy jam. x
Big Boi’s sophomore album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, dropped late last year but he’s still promoting the critically acclaimed, commercially under-appreciated project. Last night, the OutKast rapper and Jake Troth performed “Apple Of My Eye” on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman.
Big Boi’s sophomore album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, only sold about 30,000 copies its first week in stores. But don’t let the modest numbers fool you, it was one of 2012’s better projects, and here we get a video for one of its standout cuts, “In The A,” featuring T.I. and Ludacris.
