Big Boi recently talked about the difference between working on his solo album compared to that of an Outkast group project along side his project, Andre 3000. "The difference [with making this album] was the writing load," Big Boi reveals. "When it's me and Dre, I'd write maybe two verses and somebody would take care of the hook, and we would do the beat together. But when it's just me, I write the verse and the hook, so the writing load was heavier. Dre and I have been working together and separately since the Aquemini album. We had our own separate home studios, so we would do records, put all our ideas down and then we would meet up at the studio with a gang of music, songs [and] lyrics and stitch them together. Now, all of the ideas are coming from me and various artists that I work with on the album. It's not really a big difference because [Dre and I] are used to not working hip-to-hip all of the time."
