Big Boi "CPU" (ft. Phantogram) (live on 'Kimmel')
Published Jan 16, 2013Big Boi continues to make the rounds on the late circuit in support of his 2012 LP Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. He hit Letterman a couple of weeks ago and returned to the tube last night (January 15) to perform "CPU" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The monstrous outdoor stage may have housed a lot of band members, as well as guests Phantogram, but the extravagantly spread-out set-up failed to send a spark through the troupe. It could just be the laid-back vibe of the brassy funk-lite number, but even while Big Boi spit slyly, he seemed a little unenthused; Phantogram's Sara Barthel mic sounded a bit muffled.
The colour-coordinated pair smiled and did a quick two-step together in the final moments of the song, but the track just didn't deliver like it does on LP. Regardless, you can check out the performance below.
