The Rundown: Big Boi, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors
"Shoes for Running" feat. B.o.B. and Wavves
Under supervision of frequent Santigold producer John Hill, Big Boi once again skillfully brings together disparate elements — whistles, a children's choir, lo-fi guitars — as if they belong together. Nathan Williams, frontman of Socal beach-punk band Wavves, sings and plays guitars, and this song sounds more like like his comfort zone than Big Boi's or even B.o.B.'s, but the three still blend seamlessly somehow.
