In a recent interview with GQ U.K., Outkast's Big Boi revealed that he's currently hard at work on a new solo album, which is (unfortunately) no longer called Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader. When asked how the new material is coming, Big Boi admitted, "It's coming good," mentioning the release of recent singles "She Said OK" with Theophilus London and "Gossip" featuring UGK and Big K.R.I.T.

That's great and everything, Big Boi, and I'ma let you finish, but we need to talk about the other nugget of knowledge you dropped on us during that interview: your new line of socks! The always fashionable "The Way You Move" rapper loves socks so much that he actually calls himself "the sock king," explaining, "I've got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles.  Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta Georgia, 30318 and get some!"

There's no mention of Big Boi's line on Crooks & Castles' website, but we're wondering how they'll look with a pair of Air Yeezy 2s. Yet another example of how important the foot game is in hip-hop. We respect that.

Check out Big Boi's latest, "Gossip," below, and let us know what you think about his new line of socks.
