Well this is sort of depressing news.
The 36-year old rapper Antwan Patton, better known as Big Boi and half of Outkast, was arrested in Miami. According to CNN, bonds of $16,000 were set.
Big Boi is a Savannah native and even attended Jenkins High School before moving to Atlanta with family members. His Big Kidz Foundation has apparently does some great work over the years.
The video “Follow Us” was filmed in Savannah last year, including at one of my usual Congress Street hangouts, The Jinx:
Big Boi certainly isn’t the first performer to get caught up in drug problems, so let’s hope he gets things sorted out.
