Not only has Outkast’s music become more cartoonish over the years, but so have the band members.
Pitchfork TV‘s animated series ‘Frames’ have created an animated clip called Big Boi: West Palm Beach, to accompany an audio clip of Outkast member Big Boi recalling his craziest tour story with fellow member André 3000. Mixed with Big Boi’s Georgian drawl and animations that look like they’ve been taken from a Comedy Central show, it makes for a captivating way to tell a story.
The story contains the usual hip hop stereotypes: having guns pulled on you, flying on private planes while flying through a storm and brawling with people using the contents of a utility closet. Who knew that being a musician was such a life threatening occupation?
