Big Boi


On November 13, 2018, Big Boi performed at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida. As I was waiting outside, a security guard asked if I was looking for Christina Aguilera, I said: "no, I'm looking for the opener." He says, "ah, Big Boi. He's not here yet." He then suggested that I stand on the other end of the parking lot and try to wave him down as he enters the lot. I took his advice and walked around the venue to the other side. Shortly after arriving, I see two guys exiting the backstage area wearing Big Boi shirts and walking my way. I'm thinking that they're going to help direct traffic to help Big Boi get in. I watch them and see them cross the street and then walk into a nearby hotel. I headed over there, knowing that Big Boi had to be staying there. Sure enough, I was right.
Big Boi signed the front cover of his half of the OutKast Speakerboxxx/The Love Below CD.
