HIPHOP—Outkast largely put itself on ice after 2006's Idlewild, but Big Boi has picked up the baton, releasing two high-powered albums that keep the group's signature Southern funk intact, and expanding. Like a hurricane. His latest, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, swirls punk and indie rock and pop rap into the fury. Someone keep an eye on the levies. DVH
