Big Boi's label is finally here, and it seems very promising. It's a perfect blend of down south hip hop, r&b, funk, and dance. I will break down each track on the album, including interludes, to hopefully get a better picture for those curious about buying it.

intro- big boi givin us a welcome

df dedication- really like killer mike's flow, he's improved greatly. the quick 2 dope boyz sample really made me

krytptolude- nice bass work

kryptonite- ok, I won't lie..I never used to like this song that much. but god DAMN is it great. that beat is HARD. great verses from everyone. hook is catchy, just a great song overall. love that electronic synth thingie throughout the song.

campebellton road- holy sh*t. that's a BEAUTIFUL melody on the piano, give mes chills, flows perfectly into

me, my baby and cadillac- alright sleepy! the p.funk of the new millenuim in full effect. nice sitar in the background! the man of perfect harmony with his voice. piano in the background is a nice touch too. great clap and sing along. horns!? niceee

purple ribbon interlude- somewhat of a rock beat, but it's hard and heavy. would make for a great intro at a concert/good to sample and freestyle over

body rock- ah, so this is the song at the end of the kryptonite video. good hook, i can definitly see this being played in the clubs. killer mike shines once again. gets me pumped up for his upcomming album. hmm maybe a bit too slow for the clubs but maybe not. good track

my chrome- speaking of upping the tempo. killer mike is just becomming a completly new type of monster. he's amazing and i can't stress it enough. nice horn fills. speaking of improving, big boi is just tearing it up. nice back and forth play like snappin & trappin.

Straight up pimp if you want me you can find me in the A! A! A! A! A!!!!!!

Big Boi has returned! and this time not with long time partner Andre Benjamin of Outkast but with a brand new crew and record label. Purple Ribbon Entertainment consists of Bubba Sparxxx, Sleepy Brown, Big Boi, Killer Mike, Konkrete, Janelle Monae, and Scar. Affiliates include Goodie Mob and Organized Noize production team. With this lineup it's clear to see that Big Boi plans to keep the Dungeon Family/ Outkast reign on top for years. The lead single Kryptonite proves that Big Boi has that magic in making hits as much as his Outkast rhyme partner Andre Benjamin. Kryptonite became an Anthem for Atlanta and rightfully so because it is one of the best songs of the year. The rest of the album delivers as well. Killer Mike drops his knowledge on DF Dedication and keeps it ridin on My Chrome. Sleepy Brown drops in for what is perhaps the best song on the album Me & My Baby & My Cadillac which is oh so smooth. The second single Body Rock is definitely a hit and should be the next single. The melody to this song is so addictive ( body rock body rock now everybody rock) with a great beat and tight rapping. Bubba Sparxxx drops Claremont Lounge which is an ode to being a playa and getting this female to do whatever. My favorite song on the album is Time Will Reveal by Janelle Monae. It's somewhat of a throwback song to the feel good So So Def Bass All Star days yet it is modernized. I love how they brought back that old ATown freaknik style with this one. Back in the days when people used to "tick". Get up on it if you don't know. Goodie Mob reunites for Hold On produced by Organized Noize...so you already know that's a classic.

"Got Purp? Vol. 2" is a very entertaining sampler of all of the artists that Big Boi has signed to his new Purple Ribbon label. Many of these artists have been featured on OutKast albums before, and a bunch were in the Dungeon Family a few years ago when they released "Even in Darkness". They are all very talented rappers from the ATL area and it's great to finally hear them on this disc ("Got Purp? Vol. 1" is a hard-to-find mixtape). It's good that Big Boi has found an outlet to let his talented friends get some exposure.

"Got Purp? Vol. 2" really doesn't break any new ground in the hip hop industry, so from that standpoint it's a bit disappointing, because we are so used to OutKast always bringing us music like we've never heard before. The intro by Killer Mike has the same music as "Aquemini" from the 1998 Kast album of the same name. The leadoff single, "Kryptonite (I'm On It)" is an entertaining showcase with sounds similar to current crunk of the south. One of the best songs is "Me, My Baby, and My Cadillac" by Sleepy Brown. It's got that smooth sound we're used to from Sleepy, who is one of the best R&B singers around if you ask me. If he can put together some consistent, broader releases I can see great things for him on Purple Ribbon. Newcomer Bubba Sparxxx, the white rapper who had a song I remember called "Ugly" a couple of years ago, has joined the Ribbon and adds a great presence to the group. One of the nicest surprises of "Got Purp? Vol. 2" is that Antwan managed to get the Goodie Mob, one of the greatest hip hop groups, back together for a great song, "Hold On". "Hold On" would not have sounded out of place on their untouchable "Soul Food" and "Still Standing" albums, I'm so happy that they're finally together again.
