"Wait until you hear this new shit," Big Boi spilled in the interview. "Killer Mike is busy as hell. I mean, he'll come straight from the airport and go into the studio and bust on two or three records and come back again the next day. We're just trying to put as many ideas out there as possible. And me and Killer Mike, we're gonna put out a little EP after I put out my next solo record or something like that."
According to Big Boi, his next solo record, which will serve as the long-awaited follow-up to 2012's Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is "halfway done," which sets up an ideal time for the two to come together on the project. "We've been entertaining the idea for a long time and finally got enough songs to where we just said the other night that we're gonna do it."
It's not too big of a shock that the pair are linking up for a new project since they have collaborated several times before. Previously, Mike jumped don on OutKast’s Stankonia and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in addition to Big Grams' self-titled debut, which you may remember as the collaboration between Big Boi and Phantogram. Big Boi has contributed a fair amount of Mike's projects as well including his 2003 debut Monster and on Run the Jewels' "Banana Clipper."
