Big Boi's Big Gift For His Sixteen-Year-Old

Most fathers on MTV's My Super Sweet 16 present their kids with a car after a huge, obnoxious party. Oh, and it's not complete without whatever big name singer their well-endowed parents can provide to make their child the envy of high school. As his way of passing the torch and maintaining the Outkast legacy, Big Boi is instead giving his daughter Jordan Patton her own label imprint, Purple Ribbon Kidz. This is a big start for Jordan -- literally, the label already has its first artist in YouTube sensation Gabbie Rae. For Big Boi, who helped launch the careers of Janelle Monáe and Killer Mike on his Purple Ribbon All-Stars imprint, the opportunity to gift his daughter with her own label is a demonstration of him putting his money where his heart is. His Atlanta-based charity Big Kidz Foundation is known for raising money for the benefit of creative expression in youth and encouraging them to recognize that art can create wealth. "It means a lot for me to be able to follow in my dad's footsteps," Jordan says proudly. Be still young heart.
