Throughout these two years, there have also rumors of Big Boi releasing a new album. On December 31, 2007, Big Boi announced that he was going to release his first single from his new album. That album was supposed to come before the end of 2008. Despite the promise of a new album, it never surfaced.
Last year, during the fall season, the rumors of Big Boi heading to Def Jam rose. Many thought that the rumors were true. Following the rumors of his ship-jumping, he debuted the title of his album. After nearly two years of delays, Big Boi promised his album, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty.
Initially, this album was expected to be released on March 23, 2010. However, with his new deal, the album will now be released in May.
