OutKast rapper Big Boi is getting ready to unleash Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, the follow-up to his great 2010 solo album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty. His early track “Gossip” features UGK and Big K.R.I.T., but another song from the album, “Mama Told Me,” has a very different collaborator: The Swedish pop group Little Dragon. The two team up on a track called “Mama Told Me,” which finds Little Dragon doing a remarkably sharp take on the ’80s funk cheese that Big Boi so loves. And at Little Dragon’s recent Uncapped show in Austin, Big Boi showed up to debut the song with them. Watch the performance below.
