Big Boi is bringing back all the nostalgic memories of OutKast. The Savannah, Georgia native is the latest to take on NPR for their Tiny Desk Concert series. The room was immediately filled with good vibes, live instruments, and the soulful R&B and hip-hop vibes from the ’90s.

“The energy in the room was buoyant and vibrant from the moment they walked in the door,” reads a statement from NPR. “OutKast star Big Boi, Sleepy Brown of the prolific Atlanta production collective Organized Noize, and their eight-member backing band have been working together for 20-plus years, and their chemistry is instantaneous and undeniable.”

Watch below as they perform “So Fresh, So Clean,” “All Night” from his solo album, Boomiverse, and “The Way You Move.”

Major Lazer take on classic OutKast sample in new “Fire (Spotie) remix

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Random White Dude Be Everywhere. 

Diplo has been on an absolute tear lately. In the last two weeks, he’s dropped a radio-ready party cut with Lil Pump for Deadpool 2, he’s debuted an already highly acclaimed disco project dubbed Silk City with Mark Ronson, delivered a summer time jam with frequent collaborator MØ, oh… and scored the World Cup’s 2018 anthem with a comeback-primed Will Smith. But Diplo’s month-long flexing spree wouldn’t be complete without a Major Lazer giveaway, so now the trio have come through with a boisterous dancehall remix that’s perfect for Memorial Day Weekend poolside playlists.

Taking on Jus Now, Dismantle, and Busy Signal’s “Fire (Spotie)” anchored around he horn breakdown of OutKast’s seminal “SpottieOttieDopaliscious,” Major Lazer inject the uninhibited dancehall belter with an additional burst of dance floor appeal and a wild modified jungle break. The original tune, which came by way of Trinidad-meets-UK duo Jus Now and Busy Signal, who famously lended vocals to Major Lazer’s groundbreaking “Watch Out For This,” is now getting a full circle remix from Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire, as the Mad Decent helmer just continues to be the summer’s gift that keeps on giving.
