Early Life 

Antwan Andre Patton was born on the 1st of February, 1975, in Savannah, Georgia. He spent the first half of his childhood there, attending Herschel V. Jenkins High School, before moving to Atlanta with his Aunt Renne.

Eventually, Patton decided to pursue his interest in music at Tri-Cities High School, a visual and performing arts Magnet school.

 

Career 

After four increasingly successful albums as a duo, the two members of Outkast chose to make two solo albums and release them as a double album under the Outkast name. 

Patton’s choice was the single “The Way You Move”, featuring Sleepy Brown. Originally it was supported by urban radio, but then crossed over to pop charts and became almost as big a pop hit as Benjamin’s “Hey Ya!”. 

He released a mixtape/compilation album in 2005, Got Purp? Vol 2, in conjunction with the Purple Ribbon All-Stars on November 22 through Purple Ribbon Records; Aquemini Records had become defunct after Benjamin left the company. 

The album saw many delays over the next few years, but multiple promotional and video singles were released such as “Shine Blockas” featuring Gucci Mane, “For Yo Sorrows” featuring George Clinton and Too Short and “General Patton” featuring Big Rube. 

Patton revealed later in 2012, that he was already ten songs deep into his third studio album. In January 2014, he reiterated his plans for a new studio album. 

It was announced on in 2014, that Big Boi had signed a management deal with Jordan Feldstein’s Career Artist Management. It was also revealed on May 10, 2014, that Big Boi had signed a record deal with Epic Records.

As of 2020, Big Boi’s net worth is $50 Million dollars.
