Big Boi is celebrating 4/20 and preparing for his new album, Boomiverse, by dropping two new songs today. First up is “Mic Jack,” the Atlanta rapper’s collaboration that premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. Adam Levine teased the new song by photoshopping himself and Big Boi onto classic action duos on Twitter:
While this marks their first collaboration, Big Boi has another song slated to release tonight with a more frequent partner. Killer Mike, as well as Jeezy, will join him on “Kill Jill.” In all likelihood, this will be the same song the two debuted in a performance in March. There’s even been talk that the pair has a joint EP in the works.
Boomiverse will be Big Boi’s first solo album since Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors released in 2012. He’s been far from dormant in the last five years, though, as he joined forces with Phantogram to become Big Grams and released a self-titled EP in 2015. If social media is any indication, we can expect to hear Gucci Mane, Cee Lo Green, and a verse from the late Pimp C on Boomiverse. A release date for Big Boi’s third solo album hasn’t yet been announced.
Listen to “Mic Jack” below and look out for “Kill Jill” to release later tonight.
