Big Boi From Outkast

TOTAL KNEE OBLITERATION

Caught On Tape!

TMZ has obtained video of the exact moment Big Boi from Outkast DESTROYED HIS KNEE during a live performance a few days ago ... and ... yeah, it hurts to watch.

The Outkast co-founder was finishing up a rendition of "Bombs Over Baghdad" at Summer Camp Fest in Illinois on Sunday when he jumped up for the big finish ... but botched the landing and blew out his left knee.

Big Boi was clearly in a ton of pain ... but sucked it up and mustered the strength to limp off the stage.

After the show, the 38-year-old rapper said doctors diagnosed him with a "torn patella" ( ... since the patella is a bone, we're guessing he meant "patellar tendon"). 

Either way ... Big Boi has since undergone surgery to fix his busted joint, which forced him to postpone several tour dates ... but the rapper insists he'll be back on stage in 6 weeks.

"Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, tore my patella tendon with my pants on the ground."

Maybe he should have pulled up his pants first before the big leap instead of running around in his tightie whities...i think its hysterical!

So THAT'S how you get these guys to finally pull their pants up! Well, at least he had a tow chain already around his neck... could tow him to the hospital with that. ;-) OK, on a serious note... don't like seeing anyone get hurt, so... quick recovery!

Summer camp is in Chillicothe, which is outside of Peoria, which is where I live... woot woot! When I went when I was a youngin (ten years ago), Moe. headlined the show and it was a hippie fest. Sounds like things have changed.
