Big Boi avoids jail time for drug bust in plea deal

big-boi

A few months back, Atlanta rapper Big Boi — one half of the legendary Outkast crew — got into a somewhat embarrassing scrape with the law when he was arrested in Miami for possession of a number of drugs, including ecstasy and Viagra, as he was leaving a cruise ship.

He was almost immediately release on bail, and now the 36-year-old rhymer (Antawan Patton to his mom) will also avoid jail time. Earlier today, Big Boi struck a deal that will see his two felony charges dismissed provided that he submit himself to drug testing, $2,000 in charitable donations, and three months of community service.

With that behind him, Big Boi can focus on musical endeavors. Last month, Outkast followed L.A. Reid, their former label boss at LaFace, to Epic Records, and rumors are floating around that both Big Boi and his tag-team partner Andre 3000 are working on solo projects as well as the beginnings of a new Outkast album.

The pair last appeared together on 2006′s Idlewild, the soundtrack to the high-concept film of the same name, and Big Boi most recently dropped his oft-delayed Sir Lucious Left Foot: Son of Chico Dusty in 2010, which landed on EW’s list of the best 10 albums of 2010; in keeping with his penchant for amazingly awesome names, his new solo collection is supposedly called Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader.
