Everything you need to know about Big Boi's excellent new single, Shutterbug

Big Boi gives his dog a cuddle:: Big Boi is one half of superlative Atlanta rap duo OutKast

:: OutKast are best known for Hey Ya, a single with the inventive lyrical couplet: "Hey Ya. Hey Ya."

:: Big Boi had nothing to do with that song because of a DAMAGING RIFT with his cohort, André 3000

:: But he did have a hand in other great singles such as The Way You Move and Ms Jackson.

:: History does not record which hand.

:: For the last three years, Big Boi has been trying to get his improbably titled solo project - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty - onto your iPod, but record company wrangling has hindred his artistry and stifled his creativity. These are the troubled times we live in, readers.

:: The upside to the delay is that Big Boi has invested some quality time in rekindling his bromance with André 3000 (he bought him a box of Milk Tray and sent a "thoughtful" card on his birthday). Thus, the duo have been collaborating on the new record.

:: Upon hearing the good news of a semi-runion, Def Jam stepped in and suggested they could put out Big Boi's record, after all. It is now slated for a May release.

:: The first single was unveiled last night. It is called Shutterbug and it is a hot'n'funky slab of electro-rap, with a brief nod to Soul II Soul's Back To Life.

:: It features the rather unpleasant lyric: "I'm shittin' on niggers and peeing on the seat". Some people have no manners. No manners at all.

:: Shutterbug (a slang term for paparazzi, fact fans) sounds exactly like this.
