With a 15-year stint in a legendary hip-hop outfit behind him and a highly anticipated solo album on the way, what could be missing from Big Boi’s life? Socks, apparently. The OutKast alum recently announced his work on a collection of designer socks through Crooks & Castles.
After a compliment about his footwear, Big Boi recently told a GQ interviewer, “I’m the sock king! … I’ve got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles. Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta Georgia, 30318 and get some!” Meanwhile, Big Boi’s sophomore solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, is due out November 13. [GQ]
