Watch Big Boi Gamely Hobble Around an Island in ‘The Thickets’ Video
On crutches, yet still cooler than a polar bear's toenails
Good news: Big Boi’s knee surgery hasn’t prevented him from enjoying the good life. For the video of his new single “The Thickets” — one of the best tracks off his most recent solo album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors — Big Boi doesn’t let crutches and a knee brace deter him from lolling around the Tybee Island shore near Savannah, Georgia. He even spots a dolphin, which seems like the ideal scenario for animal-assisted therapy. The Atlanta legend destroyed his knee after an ill-fated jump on May 31 during a concert in Ilinois, forcing him to postpone his “Shoes For Running” Tour with Killer Mike. June’s shows have been rescheduled for September, with dates to be announced shortly.
