Making It Rain On Them Teens: Big Boi Gives His Daughter A Record Label For Her Sixteenth Birthday

- By Bossip Staff

We don’t know… Big Boi may have just made Diddy and Cee-Lo look a little crazy for their kids’ MTV specials.

The more active half of Outkast has gifted his 16-year-old daughter Jordan, pictured above with her mom Sherlita, with a business partnership in the form of a new, kids-only record label.

Outkast rapper Big Boi tells that he and his 16-year-old daughter, Jordan, have formed Purple Kidz, a new record label that will launch in the coming weeks. The imprint will feature a roster of younger artists but will target fans of all ages.

“My daughter just turned 16 years old, and you can see it on MTV’s [‘My Super Sweet Sixteen’], where they get cars, and things that depreciate and just don’t mean nothing,” says the 36-year-old rapper (real name: Antwan Patton). “I wanted to give my child something that she can grow and build and nurture. So I gave her her own label.”

Big Boi says that Purple Kidz’ first signee is Gabbie Rae, a 12-year-old singing prodigy who has appeared on “The Tyra Banks Show.” The rapper, who already heads the Purple Ribbon All-Stars hip-hop label, says that he and Jordan are the sole partners on the new imprint.

THAT’S what we’re talking about: Black wealth-building for the win!

      this is actually a good plan….a record label for kids , run by a young lady and her more experienced musical father. πŸ™‚

      this is a business she can grow and it doesnt involve her being pimped out or $lutted up like some other young children in the music business

      πŸ™‚ i endorse πŸ™‚


    shes just a kid. hes such an idiot.

    Thats a smart move he made. Once he sets her up with the right education for her to be able to hold down the label and make it grow worldwide she’ll be alright.

    A publishing company would have been smarter. She’d make money long term. Labels are folding everyday.

  • Hi HO!

    WOW! Is that his daughter from MTV cribs about 8-10 years ago.. She is a big girl now gesshhh! Time goes by so fast.. For there sweet 16 they should give there kids a financial advisor and a full scholarship.. For 4 years since school education are going up by the minute.. How about that? All these handouts these kids are getting.. But no education that’s why these celebrities are going bankrupty by the minute cause they have no smarts of there finances or education to do there own business. They hire all these ppl who then turn on u and pocket money right in front of you because you don’t have the knowledge to know that there getting 60% of your Income while your pocketing 40%..

    Big Boi’s daughter received an amazing gift. I’m pretty sure she’ll get a car like all the other kids, but the main/extravagant gift was giving her the record label. This is an original idea and he’s making an investment for himself as well as his daughter. Of course it’s not on the same scale but our financial planner gives his kids different stocks on their birthdays and on Christmas in addition to their other gifts. Those are gifts that could really benefit your kids futures and give them head starts on building wealth.

    crap more sorry music


    Good final a father who know the game and how the other races have been playing it for years. Some of us learn some will never learn how to fit in.

  • Clown niccas will get disrespected!

    @ Hi Ho

    What would be a more appropriate gift? Who’s to say a college fund has not already been set aside for her? What hand outs are you talking about? Isn’t Big Boi supposed to prepare his daughter for her future? It makes me wonder what kind of relationship did you have with your parents. You sound angry and almost bitter because you have to work hard for everything in life as do most of us.

    She’s fat. Wanna do something for her future? Get her on a diet.

  • scorpiosexxy

    now that’s what’s up!! =)


    Who doesn’t have a record label? Maybe ensuring that she goes to college, gets an education so she can be a true boardroom demon.
