Boomiverse is the third album from Big Boi, following 2012's Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. The Outkast MC also released a collaborative project w/ Phantogram in 2015, Big Grams, and this 12-tracker comes two years later w/ guest appearances from Killer Mike, Jeezy, Adam Levine, Sleepy Brown, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Curren$y, Gucci Mane, Pimp C, and more. Long before "mumble rap" and trap's takeover of the global mainstream, Big Boi, alongside Andre 3000, put the South on the music map, and for this full-length, he keeps moving like the boss that he is, and that means being sensitive to the current trends without shiting his foundation, all the while looking into the future. And that is exactly what Big Boi does: big bass, funk-and-electro-infused trap cadences backup Sir Lucious Left Foot's country-fried, boastful, prowess-filled, and humorous rhymes. Highlights include: "Kill Jill," "Mic Jack," "In the South," "Chocolate," and "All Night." Now if we could get one more Outkast album...
