Big Boi was always the less flamboyant member of Outkast ­— and that’s saying something for a guy with a stage name better suited to a well-hung twink porn star. Still, without his musical partner Andre 3000, Big Boi shines ­— this may well be the rap album of the year. Highlights include the irresistible feel-good jam Daddy Fat Sax, the sexed-up grunt of Tangerine, and the ethereal Be Still, featuring Big Boi’s protege, Janelle Monae. Inventive and outstanding, from start to finish.
