Big Boi in the Studio With Modest Mouse


This morning on the train to work, all I listened to was Kendrick Lamar and Modest Mouse, and odd combination but it seemed to work. I stared out the window and wondered when Modest Mouse would be dropping their next album, since I am, admittedly a huge Modest Mouse fan.

Well imagine my surprise when…

Seriously one of the coolest collaborations ever. If any rapper can do it, it would be someone like Big Boi, who’s genre bending hip-hop finds inspiration from all over the place. And Modest Mouse? well they’re pretty much indie rock’s equivalent, a genre bending, drunken, messy philosophical soundscapes are good enough to satisfy just about everyone and anyone in between.

While little information has surfaced about Modest Mouse’s next album, this little bit of information is just about enough in itself to carry me over until their next release.

Maybe Big Boi’s ‘Tangerine’, which feature’s some rock touches, can give us some insight into what’s about to happen in the Portland studio with Big Boi and Modest Mouse, but probably not.

Meanwhile, ‘Heart Cooks Brain’ touches on hip-hop scratches a bit…

Whatever happen’s, I have no idea what to expect, the artists involved in this collaboration are some of the most unpredictable in their respective genres.

Meanwhile, enjoy this Lil Wayne, Modest Mouse mashup…
