Big Boi feeds 150 poll workers in Atlanta
Big Boi came to the rescue after feeding 150 poll workers as they worked their long hours ahead of Election Day. “We wanted to show some love this weekend to all those working hard at the polls in my hometown of ATL,” Big Boi wrote.
According to reports, the Outkast ex-member teamed up with World Central Kitchen and Postmates to serve over 150 meals to the hardworking people who were in charge of the polls this past Saturday (October 24th). Pan-seared chicken and shrimp tacos were a couple of the food choices the employees chose from.
Big Boi posted images of the happy event onto Instagram.
“We wanted to show some love this weekend to all those working hard at the polls in my hometown of ATL,” he captioned the post. “Shoutout to @Postmates and @wckitchen for helping me make this happen! We were able to donate over 150 meals. Now get out there and GO VOTE.”
This Halloween will mark 20 years since he and André 3000 released their classic album, Stankonia.
The dangerous duo Outkast is scheduled to release a special edition of their classic album Stankonia this week in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the project. On October 8th, Sony Music announced that they will release streaming bundles, vinyl, and digital download editions of Outkast’s fourth album. Unreleased remixes will also be apart of the package as well.
Outkast’s “So Fresh, So Clean” and “Ms. Jackson” went platinum 20 years after their release. Stankonia featured the hit singles “So Fresh, So Clean,” “Miss Jackson” and “B.O.B.” — which all went platinum. The LP reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 while selling 530,000 copies in its first week.
According to Variety, the re-release will feature “six bonus tracks, such as a previously unreleased remix of ‘B.O.B’. Other bonus tracks on the expanded digital version: a remix of ‘Ms. Jackson’ by Mr. Drunk and a remix of ‘So Fresh, So Clean’ featuring Snoop Dogg and Sleepy Brown.” There will also be a cappella versions of those singles.
