Big Boi’s new video features footage from Asheville show

Rap superstar Big Boi’s new video for “Thom Pettie” features footage from his sold-out spring show at the Orange Peel in Asheville.

A collage of live performance shots and backstage antics from the road as he tours in support of his most recent album, Dangerous Lies & Vicious Rumors, the video is viewable via YouTube here:

The April 19 local performance also gained national attention from Rolling Stone, which called the set a “blur of bravado and charisma, blending a bevy of sizzling new joints with classics from his pioneering former group, Outkast.”

Big Boi will be back in town Sept. 25 for another show at the Orange Peel. He’ll be joined by fellow Atlanta emcee Killer Mike, who also opened the spring show and is featured in the new video.
