Big Boi's 25 Favorite Albums

Funkadelic, Cosmic Slop (1973)

Label: Westbound

Big Boi: "All the Funkadelic albums were kind of scattered, and they were like abstract funk. Just to hear them build on the songs, from 'Cosmic Slop' on down. The instrumentation on the records were just crazy. And the music is just free-forming. And he has some of the dopest album covers ever.

"I grew up on this. My grandmother listened to everything from Funkadelic to The Police to Bob Marley. She would send us to the store to go buy 45s every weekend, and we'd buy whatever the new record that was out for her. And she'd play that shit and wash clothes and clean the house and take care of us. I was exposed to a lot of music. That's why I can use everything, because I hear everything for what it is. If it's dope, it's dope."
