Behind The Scenes with Big Boi on the "Shoes For Running" TourBy Noisey Staff
We love Big Boi, and we love his recent record, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors. We especially love how much he slays live, so when he sent us the behind the scenes for his current "Shoes For Running" tour with Killer Mike, we jumped on it like white on baby laxative. What makes us most happy about this video is watching a conversation with Big Boi's tour manager as he scolds the crew for smoking onstage. Classic.
