Big Grams, the collaborative project between Outkast’s Big Boi and Phantogram, get animated for Adult Swim’s Off the Air. The colorful short features the group’s “Born to Shine” featuring Run the Jewels and “Run for Your Life.”
The double music video transforms Big Boi and the duo from Phantogram into cartoon characters that go on a psychedelically post-apocalyptic adventure. The group travels through a gritty cityscape while being threatened by a variety of vices and threats, ranging from gambling to a group of threatening leprechauns.
Big Grams released their self-titled debut EP in September. Big Boi and Phantogram’s work together dates back to 2010, when the rapper discovered the rock group. Along with Run the Jewels, Skrillex also appears on the experimental album. Over the summer, Big Grams will appear at several festivals, including Hangout Festival, Sasquatch, Governors Ball, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Bunbury and Free Press Summer Fest.
