Big Boi ain’t tryna hear your woes over your Monday Blues.  He’s been dropping exclusive mashups every Monday for the last three weeks, with 6 remaining in his #MashupMondays series.  Re-engineering tracks from his album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi continues to prove that his lyrics can control a beat, no matter the genre.  “GossipZilla,” the third drop from the series, is a reimagined version of VLADR’sGossip,” an outstanding merge with the conceptual rock track “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult.  Check out the track after the cut and download it here.  The previous two mashups are down there too.

The first official single from Big Boi’s upcoming album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is in.  “Mama Told Me” is a funky track produced by The Flush Music and features Kelly Rowland on the chorus.  As always, General Patton laces the track with sharp wit and boastful wordplay: “Living legend, rap scholar, art major/Cuz I make major art, like Beethoven, Van Gogh or Mozart, so don’t start.”  I dig it, but I can’t lie.  I prefer the version with Yukimi and Little Dragon.  You can implement your own compare/contrast methods after the cut.
