Flashback Friday: John Legend and Big Boi

Hey playas, wanna know the best thing about Fridays?

Well, besides the fact that it’s Friday?

It’s the time of the week where we dig into the archives and revisit some forgotten albums. Check these out.


John Legend, Evolver (2008)

Much like Alicia Keys, I tend to employ the “every other” rule for John Legend — that is, I enjoy every other album he drops. For instance, I liked his debut but was kinda cold on his sophomore effort. Per that rule, that means I was destined to love his third set, Evolver, an album that simultaneously embraced throwback soul while pushing the genre ahead.

Big Boi, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty (2010)

Earlier this week, we got word that Big Boi and the band Phantograms were planning a joint EP, Big Grams. Expect LOTS of heat. Hopefully, it will be as strong as Big Boi’s debut solo album, a vastly underrated work that stands as one of the best rap albums of the decade.
