11. Big Boi
Label: Def Jam
From: Atlanta, GA
Active Since: 1991
Career Highlights: Received six Grammy Awards and sold over 25 million records for work with Andre 3000 as Outkast, his debut solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty debuted at No. 3 on Billboard charts and charted Internationally.
For 22 years Daddy Fat Sacks has been doing the ATL proud. He's gained acclaimed for being down-to-earth foil to Andre 3000's space bound ambitions. Recently, Big Boi showed that he was more than capable of carrying on without his partner in 2010's Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, which was pretty damn close to being as good as an OutKast record. The upcoming Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours should be a treat.
