Jay Leno hasn’t gotten much love here of late, mostly because he’s Jay Leno. But even though his late night talk shows remains one of the most awful programs in television history, he is still the host of the Tonight Show and thus is still able to grab a stellar guest every once in a while. This was the case last night when, in support of his somewhat great but not overly fantastic studio debut Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty, Outkast’s Big Boi performed the album’s bangin’ — did I really just use the word “banging” and an abbreviated version at that? — first single “Shutterbugg”.
The results are what you’d expect, though Big Boi’s dance moves are less than to be desired. Hip thrusts, dude? What is it, 1997? Perhaps the biggest highlight of the evening, however, is Jay Leno uttering the name of the Pitchfork Music Festival. It even looked awkward.
Anyhow, enjoy the performance below (via Stereogum). Then see Big Boi at the aforementioned Pitchfork Music Festival later this month and/or at the 2nd annual California based Epicenter festival, where he was just added to the lineup yesterday.
