Big Boi Reminisces About Dr. Dre’s The Chronic & Song With Pimp C
Big Boi looked back recently on what made Dre’s The Chronic album stand out.
During a recent interview with Hard Knock TV, Big Boi discussed a range of topics.
The Outkast MC touched on the release of his own forthcoming album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumours, as well as reflecting on the impact that Dre’s album had on him.
“The Chronic album definitely stood out,” he said. “One of the main reasons to me is how it was put together. It was a real cinematic, for one. For two, Dr. Dre was introducing some of the most lethal emcees back then. Snoop, Kurupt… There was a whole crew of fresh, young cats coming out over Dr. Dre production. The skits and everything tied the whole album together.”
Big Boi went on to talk about how he used an unreleased Pimp C verse on Gossip, a bonus track. The track also features Big K.R.I.T. and Bun B.
“Had it for years,” he explained. “Organized Noize was on a record a long time ago that was unreleased or whatever, and then I had it for my last record. UGK is one of my favorite groups ever, and having Big K.R.I.T. and Bun and Pimp C on the record over an Organized Noize track is a dream come true.”
