Hip Hop Is Dead. Long Live Hip Hop!

Big Boi and Andre 3000 may have ventured off in differing directions this past half-decade, but Outkast remains the same. Since December, rumors of Big Boi's next solo album have been circulating, but for the last coupla months, this is the only track we've heard. Still, it's more than enough to keep the hype alive. The album is to be called Sir Luscious Left Foot, and the track, "Royal Flush" features Raekwon and Three-Stacks himself, who's become a bit of a Gandhi of the Streets. On DJ Drama's "Art of Storytellin' Pt 4", Dre deftly postulates:
She said, While you in the club, you don't make it precipitate?
You know, make it rain when you can make it thunderstorm
I'm like, Why?
The world needs sun
The hood needs funds
There's a war going on and half the battle is guns
How dare I throw it on the floor
When people are poor
Here he drops the lines:
When all the other kids are fresh and they got new Nintendo
And yo' child is down on her knees
Praying hard up to God for a Whopper with cheese
"Royal Flush" MP3 (that someone else made a video for):
