Big Boi's second solo LP will surprise anyone who assumed he just brought the street thump to Outkast. "In my iPod, I got everything from the S.O.S. Band to the Beatles to Mumford & Sons," says the MC. Vicious Lies reflects that eclecticism, with guest appearances from electropsych crew Phantogram and Swedish R&B act Little Dragon. "I always gravitate toward songs with stronger rhythms," says Big Boi. "But if it's jamming, it's jamming."
