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.”

Tom Morello, Big Boi, and Killer Mike speak out against police brutality on Bassnectar-produced ‘Rabbit’s Revenge’

In anticipation of his forthcoming solo album, The Atlas Underground, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, has aligned himself with hip-hop associates Big Boi and Killer Mike, as well as ubiquitous bass producer, Bassnectar, for “Rabbit’s Revenge.” The track takes a staunch look at an incredibly volatile topic as of late, addressing police brutality in its messaging.

The track assumes an aggressive stance toward the issue, with fierce, thrashing guitar chords, and assertive lyrics to match, which allude to some of the most prominent and hotly-debated subjects of police brutality in the last decade: “Fight for my life like I’m mother****ing Mike Brown / cause I refuse to be the next ni**a shot down.” The official video for the track, released through Apple Music, commemorates more of the most pronounced subjects of recent police brutality cases, including Bernard Bailey and Neville Johnson Jr.

“Rabbit’s Revenge” and its crew of individually outspoken creators follow a towering list of artists throughout history who have used their platform and following to take stances on the ruling issues of the day, from The Beatles‘ “Revolution” to Beyonce‘s 2013 Super Bowl performance—the latter also a blast to the police force. “Rabbit’s Revenge” is not Morello’s first police force critique, either. In 1992, Rage Against The Machine released the hotly-contended “Killing In The Name” following the LAPD’s beating of Rodney King the previous year. The track was crafted in response to the officers’ subsequent and controversial acquittal of all charges.
