Why isn’t Andre 3000 on Big Boi’s new album (out December 11)? “He could’ve been on any song he wanted to,” Big Boi told The Village Voice. “I gave the motherfucker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy. He said he had to do some Gillette shit. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations.” How do you say “zing” but with sadness?
