John Frusciante, The Empyrean (2009)
Label: Record Collection
Big Boi: "He's the guitar player for the [Red Hot] Chili Peppers. He went and did his own solo album thing, and there's a song on the album called 'Before The Beginning,' and it's his interpretation of the song 'Maggot Brain.' And it's a dope record. You'll fuck around and get a baby off of that record if you've got the right girl in front of you, I'm telling you.
"I think this might've come on TV or in a movie or something, and I used my Shazam. That Shazam is the shit. It recognizes [the song you are listening to]. Then I went to YouTube and checked out the story behind it, and it was deep, man. He was going through a lot of stuff, and he really put it down with that one. The guitar solos are insane. There's like no words on that album, it's just him playing the guitar. Crazy. Talking with that motherfucker."
"I don't play the guitar. I play a little bit of banjo. Light banjo. I picked it up not too long ago. Just a little bit. [Laughs.]"
