Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty is coming! Really. He swears. The latest release target for the OutKast spitter’s long-delayed solo debut is July 6, 2010. One reason to believe this date over all the other ones we’ve heard through the years is that the promotional gears at Big Boi’s new label, Def Jam, have begun visibly grinding. For instance, “Shutterbugg,” the superb new single that marked Big Boi’s debut as a Def Jam artist early last month, now has a video.
The clip boasts appropriately nutty imagery to go with the song’s wild sound. There are dancers in neon-accented jumpsuits. There’s a band of Crank Yankers-esque puppets, including one felt fella on vocoder. There’s a woman holding Big Boi’s disembodied head in the crook of her arm as if he were a hip-hop Ichabod Crane. There’s also a wall of red plastic cups accompanied by four kegs, which I’m guessing might contain something stronger than mere beer, considering all the other trippy sights in this video. Absinthe, perhaps?
Check out the “Shutterbugg” video after the jump (clip via One Thirty BPM). How do you like it? Looking forward to Sir Lucious Leftfoot?
