Two of the greatest lyricists from Atlanta gets animated with bars on an episode of HBO’s Animals.
Big Boi and Killer Mike are cartoon foxes and in the clip, the two emcees spit about life as a fox as they jog over an instrumental made from the sounds of animals in the streets. Peep the scene below.
Recently spoke to Big Boi about his forthcoming Boomiverse album, and he says he plans to add new dimensions to hip-hop with the project.
“When [Dr. Dre’s] The Chronic came out, music changed. When [Snoop Dogg’s] Doggystyle came out, music changed, when Wu-Tang came out, music changed. This is one of those big booms where we start it off and just switched to something else and hopefully everyone else will follow suit and just reach for something else than everybody’s song sounding exactly the same. All the patterns, the cadences, the beats; you can do more.”
Fans can see if Big Boi reaches his goal when Boomiverse drops on June 16.
