Outkast rapper Big Boi has launched his own line of socks, on sale exclusively in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

The rapper, who is due to release his new solo album later in the year, spoke to GQ about his decision to release his own line of socks, saying:

"I'm the sock king! They've got a cape on the back - that's how I flew here."

Adding: "I got my own socks line coming out with Crooks & Castles. Head over to 677 Antone Street, Atlanta, Georgia, 30318 and get some!"

Big Boi's new album, titled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours, will be released in November and is the follow up to his 2010 album 'Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty'.

Meanwhile Andre 3000, the other half of Outkast, is filming a Jimi Hendrix biopic in Dublin, Ireland.
