Big Boi Injures Knee, Forced to Postpone Tour
Poor Big Boi. It seems the slickest, most Southernplayalistic half of Outkast still touring has injured himself while rockin' a stage. And now he has to sit out for at least six weeks.
According to Billboard, the rapper was giving it his all at Summer Camp Fest in Chillicothe, Illinois, when he rocked a little too hard and tore the patella in his left knee. As a result, he has to reschedule his remaining tour dates, including a stop at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday, June 5.
But hush that fuss ... Big Boi's gonna be coming back 'round eventually.
Big Boi has been touring all over the nation to support his most recent album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. This second solo album from Daddy Fat Sax features a ton of collaborations with friends old and new, from Sleepy Brown, T.I., and Ludacris to Little Dragons, Phantogram, and Wavves.
But it seems he went in a little too hard. Then he started Instagraming pics of his injured self at the hospital and stuck at home. Now, he's just kicking back and "Catching up on #Gameofthrones with my nephew 12 Gage #LowCountryBoil by mama."
No word yet on the rescheduled date for the Fort Lauderdale show, but Big Boi promises fans he'll be back on the road as soon as he's good and able.
