This past Tuesday at Stankonia studios, Big Boi held a private listening party for his soon to be released sophomore solo album, “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors”. Within a packed house full of fans, media, DJs and others in the music industry, Big Boi let everyone hear what he has in store for on December 11th. For the event, he played multiple song such as, “The Thickets feat. Sleepy Brown”, “She Hates Me feat. KiD CuDi”, “Descending feat. Little Dragon” and a live performance of his song, “Mama Told Me” which features Kelly Rowland.
From the songs heard this is DEFINITELY going to be a CD that you will want to own. With my listening experience, I can tell that Big Boi wanted to put himself on this album. Not just what labels feel will go to the masses, or what you will always hear on the radio. I feel this will be a CD that you can relate to and is a CD that will take you back to a time in your life. This will be a CD a with meaning and who better from Atlanta to give you that than one man who has paved the way for music artists in the south other than Big Boi himself.

One thing I love doing is looking for new artists that I haven’t heard before. Right now, I have already fell in love with an English singer and songwriter that goes by the name of Lianne La Havas. Even though she is definitely making her name known, I am anxious to introduce her to more. So checkout some of Lianne La Havas videos, information and if you love her like I do, make sure to purchase her Mercury Prize nominated album, “Is Your Love Big Enough” on iTunes.

This penthouse is RIDICULOUS!!! Pharrell Williams previous bought this 3 story Miami penthouse in 2007. When the economy was going down, he was able to get this 9,080-square-foot condo for only $12.525 million. Now Pharrell wants to part ways with it, but he’s selling it now for $18.6 million. If I had the money do I feel it is worth it? HELL YEAH! but, he would have to leave the toys and Family Guy pictures on the top floor. This penthouse comes with 5 bedrooms, a home theater, a living space with 360-degree views, a penthouse pool, and a billiards room.
For more checkout the pictures below for more shots of the penthouse itself.
