He added, “It means a lot to me to give back to the fans that support my music, and as long as I can remember music and Converse have gone hand in hand, so partnering up with them was a no-brainer.”
Sir Lucious Left Foot, which was released on July 6, is Big Boi’s first solo album and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, seliing 62,000 copies in its first week.
