Big Boi Leaked His Own Music
Big Boi of Outkast confessed to leaking tracks from his album in attempts to generate interest. Execs at Jive have been holding his solo project back and he doesn’t trust them to promote it.
He told Rolling Stone magazine, “I’ve been doing it myself. It’s like I’m indie (an independent artist) right now, but they won’t let us out the contract… They (Jive bosses) don’t want to spend the money, but the music’s gonna make its own way.”
Sir Lucious Leftfoot will be released this summer. Source
I’m not mad at him. You gotta protect your own interests. Especially when you don’t have faith anyone else will.
