Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors: Big Boi & Theophilus London - "She Said OK" (Softcore?)

While André 3000 has been busy "recording a solo album," hawking Gillette razors/beard trimmers, and re-covering Hendrix covers ... Big Boi's somehow managed to record & release 2 solo projects and produce the bulk of an album for Modest Mouse. All of this has collectively happened since OutKast's long-lost last album, Speakerboxxx/The Love Below was released (2003) and on the heels of a long-rumored new album from the group, which no one really knows "if or when that will ever happen." Big Boi is currently putting a few final touches on his second solo LP, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors; This one's essentially the sequel to Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty and it's currently slated for a Nov. 13th wide release.

"She Said OK" is a mega-sized sultry cut that's co-piloted by Big Boi and Brooklyn Hipster R&B rapper Theophilus London, along with background crooner Tre Luce and Soulful producer Chris Carmouche. Big Boi cleverly laces up the laid-back beat with a bunch of sexual innuendos and rather slick double entendres. "She Said OK" now has a softcore, slightly NSFW music video directed by Alexi Papalexopoulos to go along with the digital wordplay. For the most part, it features Big Boi strewn across a curvey woman's lower regions, while she's covering up her boobs with her hands and he continues to [effortlessly] rap, barely flinching, the entire time. Big Boi recently told SPIN that Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors will also feature collaborative tracks with the likes of Little Dragon, Phantogram, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, UGK, and Big K.R.I.T. Vicious Lies... is planned for a Nov. 13th release, while André 3000's upcoming Hendrix film - "All Is By My Side" and God-willing, that new OutKast album should be out by mid-2013!
