Big Boi Explains What the Hell He’s Doing in the Studio With Modest Mouse

Modest Mousin' it.

MTV asked Big Boi what, exactly, he's doing in the Modest Mouse recording sessions, and Big's explanation does not disappoint: "We're all musicians and producers and artists, and it's just like a big-ass brainstorm, a brain-stormin', tsunami, typhoon, tectonic-plates-movin' kind of thing. We do all types of music, so to get the chance to jam with a jammin'-ass band, I knew it was going to be cool. We had a vibe too. We made a couple of records that are just jamming. It's a hodgepodge of funkiness." Also: "The fans don't have to worry. There's nothing like, 'Oh, Modest Mouse, there's some rapping going on the album!' If there needs to be some rapping on there, I will destroy it." [MTV via Pitchfork]
