Aural Story of the Week

It’s been six years since OutKast released a true album (“Idlewild” aside). Someday soon, we’ll have a solo album from Big Boi, and it will include this song:

I’ll admit, there isn’t much story here. But this is simply too good – it’s about the  flow – not to pass along. Toward the end, though, Big Boi does tell a bit of the tale about this long-delayed album:

Only the strong survive
And the weak minded are falling by the wayside
They try
But we shall overcome and succeed, indeed
With success there comes a great responsibility
We chose to lead not follow, it’s a hard pill to swallow
Better get prescriptions filled cause there might not be tomorrow

Listen.
