Rapper Big Boi, known for being one half of the Hip Hop duo OutKast, shows Rolling Stone his surprisingly large owl collection in this weird and wonderful video.
Rappers are known for their penchant for collecting cool items. Normally, it’s flashy cars or expensive jewellery. But not all rappers are the same and we shouldn’t pigeon-hole them. Some, like Atlanta native Big Boi, have more eclectic interests.
Big Boi started collecting owls after his sister had bought a number of exotic birds. After meeting a bird trainer, Big Boi asked if he could get him an owl. He obliged, and the rapper was immediately smitten with the birds. He’s now got 3 owls, Simon, Houdini and Hootie. He says that Hootie is his favourite of the three. It’s a really odd video to watch, but it does genuinely feel like the rapper does have a lot of love for his feathery pets. He’s an animal lover in general, having bred dogs for over 20 years.
