Big Boi: "Exactly. Nine songs on there. And actually, the nickname for Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors was The Nigga Thriller. Like, another dimension of Michael Jackson Thriller. I was gonna give them nine songs, but I knew they would've been so thirsty. But, every song has to be power music. And for my album, I wanted it to be the same thing, where every song hits you in a different way. That's like the greatest album of all time to me. He's the king, and there ain't gonna be another one. That be it, yo. Ain't no 'the next Michael Jackson.' Just like there ain't no 'next Outkast.' Ain't no 'next Beatles.' There ain't no next."
