Like Phife before him, Big Boi kept OutKast tethered to earth with his streetwise smooth talk, allowing his more abstract partner to achieve transcendence. And he's worked his ass off the last decade to keep the brand alive, making it easier for Andre to drift around, blowing minds with random guest verses, without everyone badgering him for an album.
