UPDATE: Big Boi has publicly denounced and denied these rumors are true.
Big Boi is big over here is the United States, but what about being big in the United Kingdom? I’m hearing that Big Boi could be making the leap to “Big Brother,” the hit UK TV show. The NME alleges that he’s going to join the cast of the reality show for a nice sum of money.
A source told the paper that: “Producers always like to mix things up with an American star and they hope Big Boi will do the business this year.”
It is believed the rapper, who has released two solo albums, including 2012 record ‘Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours’, has agreed a fee of £300,000 to appear on the programme. A spokesperson for Channel 5 refused to co
mment on contestants before the series starts.
Honestly, I don’t know what “Big Brother” is all about, but Coolio was the last rapper on there. Not sure if Big Boi can fill those massive shoes!
Also, there was a rumor that Andre 3000 was coming back with an album in 2014. Not so, Andre has said. This dude has his fans in a headlock! I think he’s scared to “do it again.” The Lauryn Hill syndrome!
