Big Boi is the latest rapper to take to Reddit for a Q&A session. During the “AMA” chat, the Atlanta rapper shared some interesting stories, as well as some explanations to a few old lingering questions. You can read the entire exchange here, but if you don’t have the time, here are the highlights:
- He got the idea to perform on a throne from his guitar player David Wild. David showed him a video of Alice in Chains frontman Layne Stayle performing on stage in a wheelchair after breaking his foot and pointed out that fans still enjoyed that show. Plus, Big Boi noted, it was appropriate for him to sit in his “rightful seat.”
- He has no idea if Ms. Jackson ever accepted Andre’s apology. We hope she did. You can’t hold on to a grudge forever-ever.
- “SpottieOttieDopalicious” is slang for a beautiful, intelligent and jazzy woman.
- His Words With Friends handle is “bitchkilla2.” Play him at your own risk. He’s also on level 116 of Candy Crush.
- One of the toughest verses of his to rap live is “Speedballin” from the Tomb Raider soundtrack.
- The artist he wants to work with the most is UK singer Kate Bush.
- His most played song on iTunes is Three Six Mafia’s “Slob on My Knob.”
- For an entire school year, he and his mom, along with his four siblings, lived in a Motel 6. They ate sandwiches out of a cooler.
- One of his proudest records from his career is “Descending” off Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors.
- His favorite shoe of all-time is the Jordan 3.
- Ric Flair was his favorite WWF Intercontinental Champion. (At lest he didn’t say the Honky Tonk Man.)
- “Unhappy” is the most meaningful record to him on Speakerboxxx.
- If he could pick one Outkast song for the world to remember, it would be “Elevators.”
- Tupac jumped through the partition in his limo to meet Big Boi because the driver wouldn’t stop.
