“Higher Res” only came with the Deluxe version Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, so it perhaps escaped notice even more so than the rest of the album––which itself probably suffered from its year-end release date. Among the year-end noise was more than a little praise for Jai Paul’s second song ever, “Jasmine” (show me a best songs of 2012 list that didn’t include it), and so its somewhat remarkable that more hasn’t been made of his appearance on Big Boi’s album. He gets sole producer credit and features much more prominently on the track than either Big Boi or Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon––making it more or less a Jai Paul song, and just his third one. While something about the song still doesn’t quite stick, we’re still willing to call this an exercise in awesomeness worth revisiting, even if it just makes you crave a five minute version of the song or another proper Jai release.
