The Rundown: Big Boi, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors
"She Said OK" feat. Theophilus London and Tre Luce
The wah-wah guitar and Sleepy Brown-inspired hook from Tre Luce make this bonus track sound more like classic Outkast than anything else on the album (though the juvenile bluntness of the freaky chorus is more Bourbon Street than Peachtree Street). But after the unexpected musical excursions on the LP — from indie to electro to funk to rap and back — it almost seems like an unnecessary after-thought. Yes, it would've been great to hear a verse from Andre 3000 instead of perfectly capable Brooklyn pop-rapper Theophilus London, but with this album Big Boi has taken a big step out of the shadow of his permanently-on-hiatus band and reclusive partner. Andre may be the more nimble rapper, but Big Boi's wide artistic scope here is a marvel in itself.
