Big Boi makes up one half of the most successful hip-hop duos in history – OutKast. Along with his partner-in-rhyme Andre 3000, Outkast won three Grammys and had one of the best-selling hip-hop albums in history. In 2001, the duo had their first No. 1 hit with, "Miss Jackson". Two years later the duo decided to release their own solo records as part of a dual disc album released in 2003. Big Boi released the crossover hit, "The Way You Move" which bumped Andre 3000's "Hey Ya" from the top spot on the pop charts. Big Boi's first completely solo album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Song of Chico Dusty, featured songs with Cutty, T.I. and B.o.B. His highly anticipated follow up album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is set to be released on November 13.
Returning to the Rock The Rapids stage is co-headliner and six-time Grammy nominated rapper, B.o.B. B.o.B released his Gold-certified debut album, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray that featured the multi-platinum break out hits, "Airplanes" featuring Haley Williams of Paramore, and "Nothing On You" featuring Bruno Mars. His newly released sophomore album, Strange Clouds, features duets with everyone from Lil Wayne on the platinum title track to "Both Of Us" featuring pop country princess Taylor Swift. With a well-balanced offering of genre-defying songs and a worldview to match, B.o.B proves that living with your head in the clouds isn't such a bad thing after all.
