The Rundown: Big Boi, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors
"The Thickets" feat. Sleepy Brown
Big Boi and co-producers Cy Frye Mouche cook up an epic mix of gospel-choir testifying, courtesy of a Jodeci sample, and trap-rap drums here, and Sleepy Brown's ageless falsetto brings it all home. But Big doesn't let the beat do all the talking; "The Thickets" starts off strong with one of his most spirited rhymes on the album.
