Big Boi "Damaged World" (ft. the Menahan Street Band)
Published Feb 17, 2014Big Boi is sticking to his promise of giving us tweaked-up tunes every week as part of his "Mashup Mondays" series, this time lacing the soulful arrangements of the Menahan Street Band around the personal bars of his Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors track "Tremendous Damage."
Christened here as "Damaged World," we hear the heart-stirring, horn-heavy bounce of the Street Band's instro track for Charles Bradley's "The World (Is Going Up in Flames)" paired with Bosko's haunting hook and Big Boi's bars about the death of his father and persevering through the pain.
Visually, the accompanying clip features a CGI spaceship hurtling through the cosmos, facing a lightning storm, and striving to continue its mission.
You can take in the motivating mash-up in the thematically aligned video down below.
