Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

Last updated

"Turns Me On" has a comical beat and multiple vocals, including 1950s-styled vocals during a break in the song. "Follow Us" features fractured, Afrobeat guitar phrases, sleazy synthesizer, and a pop refrain by Vonnegutt. "Shutterbugg" has a robotic stutter, falsetto refrain, female whispers and described by The Guardian 's Hattie Collins as "a futuristic, brain-crunching slice of jittery electro hop". [18] "Tangerine" features blunt lyrics concerning strip club themes and a lascivious guest rap by T.I. [29] [30] [34] [35] The song incorporates various musical elements, including exotic Afro-polyrhythms, psychedelic instrumental effects, booming bass, tribal beats, synthesizer vamps, and slow, reverbing grunge rock guitar. [29] [30] [34] [35] Tom Breihan notes that the song "somehow simultaneously sounds like strip-club ass-shake material and Funkadelic covering Morricone", [38] while music journalist Alexis Petridis writes that it "improbably burst[s] into something that most closely resembles a P-Funk take on the mid-60s Batman theme. The lyrics, meanwhile, come in a breathless blur of druggy non-sequiturs and pop-culture references, some of it frankly baffling". [34] "Fo Yo Sorrows" features funk musician George Clinton performing the hook and has been described as "a seamless blur of old school Atlanta bass, current-day glitch-hop and Funkadelic-style psychedelia". [45]

Several tracks on Sir Lucious Left Foot contain humorous skits with dialogue from additional vocalists, [38] [46] including Chris Carmouche, Dax "Dirty Dr." Rudnak, Big Rube, Henry Welch, and Keisha Atwater. [19] Welch and Carmouche are featured in a skit at the beginning of "Be Still", in which they make a reference to "tea bagging". [47] Dax Rudnak concludes "General Patton" (Produced by J Beatzz) with a skit about a sex maneuver called "the David Blaine", [19] which according to the skit is "when you’re making love to someone from behind, then have a friend take over and you run to a window and wave at your partner". [48] In an interview for Time Out Chicago , Big Boi was asked whether he "[is] taking credit for this, or is this something people do?", to which he responded "Yeah, man! You know, man, they do it now!". [48]


The album's title is derived from Big Boi's longtime moniker "Sir Lucious Left Foot". [21] In several interviews, he has explained part of it as a reference to the Southern slang phrase "gettin’ out on the good foot", [2] while describing the entire moniker as an indication of maturity, noting it as "my real grown-man persona" and "like my Luke-Skywalker-becoming-a-Jedi persona. Like, I'm just really serious about my craft, I've mastered it, and I'm very skilled at it, and I take pride in making this music". [49] He incorporated the nickname "Chico Dusty" to the album's title as a dedication to his late father, [18] Tony Kearse, who gained it while serving as a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force and Marines. [50] [51] The spelling of luscious in the album's title, Big Boi's moniker, is intended to reflect on its distinctive pronunciation "loo-shuss", which according to Big Boi, is not "the girl name; you call a girl luscious, along the lines of voluptuous". [52]


Record label

In July 2009, Big Boi left Jive Records, [53] following creative differences and the label's unwillingness to release and promote his solo album. [54] According to Big Boi, Jive gave him an ultimatum to shop the album elsewhere. [16] In an interview for GQ , he discussed his release from Jive and his discontent with the label for proposing he record a cover of rapper Lil Wayne's "Lollipop", stating "They told me to go in and make my version of Lil Wayne's Lollipop! I love that song... But how you gonna tell me to go bite another MCs style?... That's the highest form of disrespect ever. So that's when I wanted to get off Jive. And the only honorable thing they've done is allow me to do that". [54] Big Boi expressed that Jive viewed its intended singles as not "radio-friendly" and the album as "a piece of art, and they didn't know what to do with it". [55]

In a July 2010 interview for MTV, Big Boi said that most of the album's material had been finished while at Jive, stating "It's basically the same album. I could have been done, like, a year ago. But being that we were having creative differences — you know, every time they rejected what I was doing, I would go back in the studio and work on more stuff. The last two songs, 'You Ain't No DJ' and 'Be Still,' were the last two records, but everything else was already on there". [56] Despite his individual release, OutKast as a group remained signed to Jive. [54] After leaving Jive, Big Boi contacted record executive and Island Def Jam CEO/chairman L.A. Reid, who had originally signed OutKast to LaFace in 1992. [16] [57] He played Reid a track from the album, "Fo Yo Sorrows", which persuaded him to actualize a contract for Big Boi. [16] Following two months of negotiations, Big Boi signed a three-album deal with Def Jam Recordings in March 2010. [16] [15]

Big Boi's clash with Jive has essentially been an update on the oldest of music business disputes — between a label's commercial concerns and an artist's creative ones, tensions that have become more acute as the industry grapples with its current financial straits.

Before his departure from Jive, Big Boi planned to release the album in 2008. [15] In January 2010, he announced a March 23 release through his Twitter account. [58] In April, [59] its release was pushed back to July 6 in the United States. [55] However, in June, Jive attempted to block its release, claiming that Def Jam could not issue songs featuring both Big Boi and André 3000, as OutKast was represented as a duo by the former label. [55] [60] In a June 7 interview for GQ, Big Boi responded to a question concerning the blocking of his recordings with André 3000 for Sir Lucious Left Foot, stating "Au contraire! They cannot block it. Au contraire. Either they're going to do it the right way, or they're going to do it my way... The fans' thirst will be quenched. You know, I'm no stranger to that Internet, baby. So you already know what time it is. The thirst of the fans will be quenched". [54] On June 10, his website released the album's track listing, [61] which excluded tracks featuring André 3000. [54] Of his songs with André 3000, he told GQ, "We're gonna keep one of them for the next OutKast record". [54]

The album was made available for streaming at Big Boi's MySpace page. [62] Following leaks of several of its tracks, the album also leaked in its entirety to the Internet on June 29, 2010. [63] Prior to its official release, anti-piracy companies had estimated that his tracks were being downloaded approximately 45,000 times a day. [63] On July 1, Big Boi self-released his mixtape Mixtape for Dummies: Guide to Global Greatness as a free download through his website, [64] featuring tracks compiled by DJ X-Rated and DJ Esco from Big Boi's solo recordings and work with OutKast. [65]

Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty was released by Big Boi's imprint Purple Ribbons label and Def Jam Recordings on July 5, 2010, in the United Kingdom and on July 6 in the US. [62] [66] A deluxe edition of the album was released simultaneously in the US, with the inclusion of two bonus tracks and a second DVD of music videos for several songs. [67] Big Boi's official website store offered limited edition releases of the album, including the deluxe edition's two discs, ivory white vinyl LPs, a limited edition T-shirt, and a custom GoodWood chain. [68] In promotion of the album's release, Converse produced a special limited edition run of Chuck Taylor All-Stars shoes in August 2010. [69] [70] The shoes were designed by Big Boi himself and feature the album title printed around the outer sides of the shoe's heel. [69] On the collaboration, Big Boi said in a statement "as long as I can remember music and Converse have gone hand in hand, so partnering up with them was a no-brainer". [70]


Amid his disputes with Jive, Big Boi leaked two recordings originally intended for Sir Lucious Left Foot as promotional singles to the Internet. [55] The album's first promo single, "Royal Flush" featuring André 3000 and Raekwon, had appeared on various web magazines and blogs in March 2008. [50] It received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group and was named the best song of 2008 by [71] Its second promo single, "Sumthin's Gotta Give" featuring Mary J. Blige, was leaked to the Internet along with its music video in June 2008. [50] The Boi-1da-produced track "Lookin' 4 Ya", featuring André 3000 and Sleepy Brown, [54] leaked onto the Internet on June 8. [72] The track's "Jedi Remix" version was released to East Village-based radio show Baller's Eve and subsequently onto the Internet in September 2010. [73] [74] It features the original instrumental with two different verses from both Big Boi and André 3000. [74]

Big Boi leaked the album's first official single, "Shutterbugg", on April 6, 2010. [75] It was officially released as a single on April 26. [76] It was also issued on interactive music site MXP4, which enabled users to play with, mix, remix, and sing along with the track. [77] Its music video was directed by Chris Robinson and premiered on May 26. [78] The video's concept incorporates various scenes that accentuate different lines from Big Boi's lyrics. [79] On its concept, Big Boi said in an interview for MTV, "It goes with the rhymes. Chris Robinson was definitely onboard [with the concept]. What he took from the song was a lyrical, visual adventure. There's a lot of special stuff going on. He's freaking the visuals like I'm freaking the rhymes". [79] "Shutterbugg" spent two weeks on the US R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at number 60, [80] and it charted at number 99 on the US Hot 100 Airplay. [81] It also reached number 31 and spent four weeks on the UK Singles Chart, [81] and at number eight on the Deutsche Black Charts in Germany. [82] Rolling Stone named "Shutterbugg" the 14th best single of 2010. [83] It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 2010. [84]

"Fo Yo Sorrows", featuring George Clinton, Too Short, and Sam Chris, was released as a promotional single on June 8, 2010, through iTunes. [85] "General Patton" was also released to iTunes on June 15. [86] Its music video was released on June 13. [87] On August 26, Big Boi's website posted the track's "chopped and screwed" version as a free download. [88] The song "Tangerine", featuring T.I., was released to iTunes on June 29. [89] "Follow Us", featuring Vonnegutt, was released as the second official single on July 20 in the US and September 13 in the UK. [90] [91] A music video for the song was directed by Zach Wolfe and released on July 1. [92] The track was remixed by Vonnegutt and released September 13 through Big Boi's website. [93] The track "You Ain't No DJ" received some airplay on Atlanta-based radio. [94] Its music video was directed by Parris in Atlanta, [26] and released virally on September 2. [95] The video features Big Boi in a red tracksuit and with a lightsaber in one scene, [96] guest rapper Yelawolf lounging on a couch, and several break dancers, while motions in the video's scenes are rewinded and sped up with film editing to accentuate cutting, mixing, and spinning by a DJ in the song.

Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty was met with rave reviews from critics. [141] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 90, which indicates "universal acclaim", based on 33 reviews. [136] AllMusic editor Andy Kellman called it "one of the loosest, most varied, and entertaining albums of its time". [35] Entertainment Weekly 's Simon Vozick-Levinson called the album "a stunningly realized solo debut". [138] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian praised its "kaleidoscopic range of musical influences" and Big Boi's lyrics. [34] Rob Harvilla of The Village Voice called it "fantastic, by turns triumphant, defiant, and gleefully crass [...] it feels triumphant and relieved and epic even if you discount the tortured backstory". [49] Seth Colter Walls of Newsweek stated "Big Boi makes the contemporary trappings of hip-hop sound funkier than just about anyone". [142] Adam Downer of Sputnikmusic called it "a brilliant record" and commented that "the beats are killer, the verses sick, the pacing perfect, and the skits are actually pretty funny". [46]

Los Angeles Times writer Ann Powers praised its music's "depth and complexity", adding that it "highlights his focused language skills within musical settings that touch upon rock, electro, dubstep and classical fanfare, grounded in a thick bottom that guarantees plenty of booty bounce". [36] Gregg Lipkin of PopMatters praised the album's "shifting tones and musical invention". [40] Sean Fennessey of Spin praised its bass-heavy tracks and called Big Boi "a deceptively elegant rhymer". [28] Rolling Stone writer Jody Rosen commented on Big Boi's performance, "He's got an inimitably slick and speedy flow and a personality bigger and more forceful than anything his producers can throw at him". [140] Pitchfork 's Tom Breihan called the album "inventive, bizarre, joyous, and masterful" and stated "He just does so many things with his voice and cadence, letting his words fall over the snares one moment and fighting upstream against the beat the next [...] blissfully free of both old-man hectoring and drug-rap nihilism". [38]

In a mixed review, Andy Gill of The Independent felt it was "not as immediately engaging" as Big Boi's Speakerboxxx album, noting "a laziness about some of the rhyming". [143] While noting his boastful "lyrical slackening" as a minor flaw, Slant Magazine 's Jesse Cataldo found Big Boi "consistently in fine, tongue-tying form" and described the album as "rigidly focused and almost uniformly strong [...] by-the-books hip-hop with just the right proportion of ingredients". [144] In MSN Music , Robert Christgau observed a "pervasive albeit incoherent musicality" and "a succession of enjoyable songs with plenty to offer", but ultimately lamented that, "without OutKast's synergy, few of [Big Boi's] many good moves are slam dunks." [139]


The album appeared on numerous critics' and publications' year-end top albums lists. [145] Chris Yuscavage of Vibe ranked it number eight on his list of the 10 Best Albums of 2010. [146] Paste ranked it number 37 on its 50 Best Albums of 2010 list, calling it "a massive, ambitious album shot through with knee-knocking beats and deft lyrical touches from Outkast’s swagger champion... [B]oth a trove of pop jams and a profound piece of artistic experimentation". [147] Nitsuh Abebe of New York named it the second best album of 2010 and called it "as forward-thinking as it was charming". [148] The A.V. Club ranked it number seven, [149] NME ranked it number 38, [150] PopMatters ranked it number 10, [151] The Guardian ranked it number 27, [152] The Wire ranked it number 15, [153] and Spin ranked it number 13. [154] Rolling Stone placed it at number 21 on its year-end albums list and called it "a nasty, future-funk odyssey, done the way George Clinton used to do it: stretched-out grooves, cavernous bass boom, gutbucket guitar and thick electro thump, all held together by Big Boi's whiplash rhymes and pimper-than-thou style". [155]

Time ranked the album number nine, with the publication's Claire Suddath writing that "It's an amalgam of beats, chants and raps mixed together with exacting precision. Big Boi deftly jumps between musical styles [...] and his raps come so fast, he seems to never pause for breath". [156] Pitchfork Media named it the fourth best album of 2010 and stated "[T]he sound of Sir Lucious Left Foot is an exercise in recognizing traditions and pushing them miles ahead. Big Boi crowns it all with a lyrical acumen so detailed and charismatic—acting as benevolent hustler, knuckle-dusting elder statesman, trickster smartass and street-level philosopher". [157] It was voted the sixth-best album in The Village Voice's Pazz & Jop critics' poll for 2010, [158] while 11 songs from the album were included in the poll's singles list, including "Shutterbugg" (number seven), "Shine Blockas" (number 95), and "Follow Us" (number 316). [159] In 2014, the album was named the 79th best album of the decade "so far" in a list by Pitchfork Media. [160]
