Big Boi Is Lending a Hand on the New Modest Mouse Album

Great news, everyone! Big Boi — yes, Big Boi — is apparently assisting in the production of the new Modest Mouse album. In what capacity is as of now unclear, but Big has sent out a series of tweets on the subject: "Me and @mouche1 [producer Chris Carmouche] in the studio workin with Modest Mouse on their new album Turnt up ! Shout out to [front man] Issac [Brock] and the crew!"; "Been camped out in the Lab with Modest Mouse all week, workin on the new mouse LP, coolest cats ever. Long Live The Funk"; "Modest Mousin' it." One assumes this unlikely chain of events occurred after Isaac Brock took a look at his band's venerable back catalogue and thought to himself, Yeah, this shit is pretty dope. But how much better would it be if Big Boi were on it? [BigBoi/Twitter via Exclaim]
