As part of Big Boi's plans for world domination, he has enlisted the more-than-capable services of Phantogram for the next chapter in the increasingly unpredictable book of one of Georgia's most prominent ATLiens. Big Boi first teased the fruits of this collaboration during Outkast's whirlwind reunion tour in 2014, revealing the trio had already completed a large portion of what would become an entire album entitled Big Grams.
