Andre 3000 may have gotten the leg up on Big Boi by snagging the hipster collabo of the year when he scored a feature on Frank Ocean's Channel Orange album, but Big Boi can land a hipster track too.
Swedish alt-pop act Little Dragon was performing at the FADER X VITAMIN WATER UNCAPPED SERIES in Austin, Texas (hipster central), when Big Boi came out for a surprise performance. The Outkast rapper announced that the two acts were joining forces for "Mama Told Me," a new track from Little Dragon's new album, which they then performed live in Austin.
What Big Boi and Little Dragon cooked up is a funky slice of pop/soul. Big Boi does what he does best and plays it cool while Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano gloats about her destined stardom. "Mama Told Me" feels deliciously '80s-inspired and there's not a whole lot to dislike about it.
