Big Boi is a featured fighter and a playable character in Def Jam Icon.
Big Boi (born Antwan André Patton on February 1, 1975 in Savannah, Georgia) is an American hop hop artist and producer; one half of the successful and alternative Hip Hop duo OutKast. He also goes by the aliases "Daddy Fat Sacks," "General Patton," "Sir Lucious L. Leftfoot," "Billy Ocean," "Hot Tub Tony," and "Francis the Savannah Chitlin' Pimp." He was born and spent the first half of his childhood in Savannah, attending Herschel V. Jenkins High School (as shown on Behind the Music) before moving to Georgia's capital of Atlanta. He had a strong interest in hip hop music, and met André "André 3000" Benjamin while attending Tri Cities High School in the late 1980s. The two eventually joined forces as OutKast and signed with LaFace Records. In contrast to his more sedate, philosophical partner, Patton's on-record persona enjoys partying and employs a more pimp like mentality. He can be identified by his rapid-fire delivery and intensely intricate rhyme, a style which had become more distinct since the album ATLiens. Patton is also the more direct member of the team, and has often used his lyrics to criticize the problems that plague both the African American community and the world. One example is 2002's "War," a scathing attack on the Bush administration and the "war on terror."
