Beginning in 2010, Kaytranada rose to prominence after releasing a series of mixtapes, remixes, and original music projects. After signing a deal with XL Recordings in 2014, Kaytranada debuted his studio album 99.9% in 2016, earning him Artist of the Year for the Canadian Independent Music Awards and Electronic Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. In 2019, Kaytranada released BUBBA, for which he won two Grammy Awards in 2021 (Best Dance Recording for "10%" with Kali Uchis and Best Dance/Electronic Album) as well as a Juno Award.
Big Boi quickly reached superstardom in the early 1990s as half of the iconic duo OutKast. The legends sold 25 million albums and won seven Grammy Awards, becoming the first and only hip-hop artist in history to win the Grammy for “Album of the Year” upon release of the 2003 RIAA Diamond-certified Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.
“I am a big Atlanta United fan so I’m excited to be performing at the MLS All-Star Concert presented by Heineken in Los Angeles in a few weeks,” said Big Boi. “It’s going to be a good time and I’m pumped to share some of my new music live with my fans.”
Big Boi made his formal debut as a solo artist in 2010 with Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, followed by Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors (2012), Big Grams (2015) and Boomiverse (2017). In July, the Atlanta native released the new song “‘lowercase (no cap)’” with Sleepy Brown featuring Killer Mike as part of an upcoming collaborative album The Big Sleepover.
