Big Boi, Sleepy Brown & CeeLo Green Have A Dungeon Family Reunion With Bad Intentions
Shortly following his halftime performance at 2019’s Super Bowl LIII, Big Boi did a led tour with members of the Dungeon Family in Goodie Mob, Sleepy Brown, Organized Noize, and KP The Great. While on the road, Sleepy Brown and Big Boi’s rejuvenating reunion invigorated the two longtime friends to collaborate once again for their upcoming joint project aptly dubbed, The Big Sleepover. The two also recently appeared together late in 2018 for NPR’s Tiny Desk series to perform Big Boi’s verse on the OutKast single, “So Fresh, So Clean.”
To kick off the forthcoming album, Sleepy Brown and Big Boi have released the music video for their record, “Intentions,” alongside Goodie Mob and D.F. member CeeLo Green. As the video opens, Daddy Fat Sax and Sleepy coast through Atlanta in a white Lamborghini and pull up to the spot to receive an address to a private party for a bit of Funk-filled fun. With CeeLo on the keys, Brown and Big keep the music flowing as a host of masked guests and fire dancers complete the ambiance to their groovy masquerade. This song is produced under the Organized Noize moniker, which includes Sleepy.
Big Boi and Sleepy Brown continue to put the finishing touches on, The Big Sleepover. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Big Boi said of the upcoming album, “We wanna make ya feel good. The Big-Sleep is over. This is the Evolution of Daddy Fat Sax and Sleepy Brown.”
In a press statement, Sleepy Brown added his own thoughts about their intentions for the record. “We developed this sound together,” Sleepy Brown said. “We love that funk era, but also changing with the times. We wanted something upbeat and danceable, so we sped it up. I bring that smoothness, the butter on the popcorn.” The single is released through Big Boi’s revived Purple Ribbon imprint, a label responsible for past work by Killer Mike, Janelle Monae, and Bubba Sparxx, among others.
Big Boi and Sleepy Brown’s, The Big Sleepover, is set to drop in 2020.
