Big Boi’s amazing 2010 record Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is the gift that keeps on giving and the comic book inspired video ‘Be Still’ is evidence of just that. Previously Big Boi and Janelle Monae have collaborated on the brilliant ‘Tightrope’ one of the highlights from last years excellent The Archandroid by Monae but this jazzy little number is just as good!
