Big Boi’s youngest son Cross graduated from high school at Woodward Academy in College Park, Ga. on Saturday (May 11). The special moment featured a reunion with OutKast rhyme partner Andre 3000 who was in attendance.
Big also had a special gift waiting for his son in celebration of his accomplishment in the form of a brand new Tesla. In video posted to Big’s Instagram account, he surprises his son with the new whip. Young Cross is amazed after realizing the ride is his. “Oh my God,” he says in the clip while covering his mouth. After exchanging a heartfelt dap and hug, Big encourages Cross to inspect the inside, which he is amazed by.
The reclusive Andre 3000 was also present to show support. Big shared a photo of all three posing for the camera. 3K also attended Big Boi’s son Bamboo’s high school graduation in 2018.
Next up for Cross is the University of Oregon.
Back in October, Cross, who is a standout high school running back, committed to play football for the Ducks. Proud papa Big was also on hand for the announcement, which went down at the teen’s school. Big shared footage of the decision on IG along with the caption, “Congrats Son ! We are so proud of u ! #18 crosspatton Keep Pushing , The world is yours ! Thanks to All the Coaches and Cross will definitely be riding in style in college.

“My house was $3.7 million. Then I put about $600,000 into it. That’s the most I’ve ever spent, but I look at it as a good investment. At the end of the day, that shit already went up in value. It could be there for the kids.
I don’t feel like I’m playing myself no more.
Just paying rent was never feeling good anyways.” “Other than that, trips. Hawaii trips. I bring homies with me. I usually go like five to seven deep. It’ll cost sometimes if I go on a trip. Sometimes it’s around $80,000 to $100,000. Spend 100 racks on a trip, that’s something you can never lose. Your watch can get taken from you, your chain can get taken, you can go to ja-il and they can take your home, but memories are forever.” “A few things: Maybe my home, a car. I’d say my Lamborghini truck that I bought—I haven’t drove yet. Bought it a year ago. Hasn’t came yet.”“When I first signed my record deal, I went and bought a Mercedes[-Benz] in cash. That was the most cash I ever took out the bank and bought something with. It’s a matte black Convertible CLK. It was about $55,000 at the time.”
“Probably some shoes. I bought these Yeezy Red Octobers a couple years ago. They was like five racks. That was probably the dumbest shit. But those, they don’t make those anymore.”
