Big Boi+Calvin Harris
While we wait for the the much-anticipated next OutKast album, we've been fortunate to have half of its membership release one of the most critically lauded rap albums of the year. Boi's funk gets pretty gritty now (heavy P-Funk-style stank), but that's definitely a plus with this type of music. And while Calvin Harris can headline arenas in the United Kingdom, his humorous dance music gets passed over here, usually in favor of LCD Soundsystem, which ain't entirely fair.
