big boi*Big Boi is doing big things, despite the distance between his best rap buddy Andre 3000.

The artist is gearing up to release another solo album pretty soon and has even ventured out to pursue a designing career. Socks are his specialty.

“I’m the sock king! They’ve got a cape on the back – that’s how I flew here,” he said in an interview with British GQ. “I got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles.  Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta Georgia, 30318 and get some!”

In the music department, he just released two records off his coming new album, “She Said OK,” with Theophilus London, and “Gossip” with UGK and Big K.R.I.T. Pimp C also makes a postmortem appearance on the track.

“I had the verse for years. It was on another un-released record that I had from Organized Noize and it just matched up perfectly. I was already getting Bun B on there and just to put Pimp C on there made it turn out great.”

“On the new album I’ve got Kid Cudi and Little Dragon. I just did a cut with A$AP Rocky the other night too, so it’s action-packed,” he bragged.

As far as reuniting with André, that’s not a topic up for discussion at this point. But it was once rumored André was working on releasing an album.

“He’s supposed to. You got to talk to him, that boy changes his mind so much I can’t even speak on that no more.”

Big Boi is currently signed with Jive Records.
