Outkast rapper Big Boi has asked his fans to play against him in Words With Friends, the Scrabble-like word game on Facebook. The rapper issued a challenge to his fans on Twitter yesterday, revealing that his Words With Friend handle is Bitchkilla2 and inviting them to "come get sum." Not long after the announcement, Big Boi tweeted "I'm playing 30 motherfuckaz at the same time, be patient, I got an ass whoopin for each and every 1 of u !"

It's hard to say how long Big Boi will maintain an interest in playing the game with his fans, but those eager to face off against one of the most gifted emcees in all of hip-hop should throw their hat in the ring sooner rather than later. If you're curious to see what a game of Words With Friends with Big Boi looks like, a few Tumblr blogs have posted a screen shots from one of yesterday's matches.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
