You Bought the New Big Boi Album Yesterday, Right?

Seriously, if you care about contemporary music at all, you should probably pick up the second Big Boi solo album (well, third, if you count his half of Speakerboxx/Love Below) Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, which hit stores and digital outlets yesterday. There's always some debate about which member of Outkast was the real genius in the group, with most people (read: nerds) who spend time thinking about these things usually siding with Andre 3000, just because he plays to our auteur expectations, dressing strangely, etc.
While Andre is unquestionably an exceptionally talented human being (who should really consider putting an album out again someday), the either/or characterization isn't fair to Big Boi.
