Big Boi Wants Dungeon Family’s Cee Lo to Snag a Grammy

OutKast MC Big Boi has six Grammy awards on his mantle, so he’s more than familiar with the award show. We caught up with the rapper to find out who he thinks will walk away with a golden gramophone. Big Boi might be a little biased considering Dungeon Family’s own Cee Lo is up for a few awards.

The BoomBox: What’s your pick for the following categories, and why?

Best New Artist
Justin Bieber
Drake
Florence & the Machine
Mumford & Sons
Esperanza Spalding

Big Boi: Mumford & Sons — They’re cool as s—.

The BoomBox:

Album of the Year
‘The Suburbs,’ Arcade Fire
‘Recovery,’ Eminem
‘Need You Now,’ Lady Antebellum
‘The Fame Monster,’ Lady Gaga’
‘Teenage Dream,’ Katy Perry

Big Boi: Eminem is a killer rapper and a good friend. He’s battled a lot over the past few years and the album is hot.

The BoomBox:

Record of the Year
‘Nothin’ on You,’ B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars
‘Love the Way You Lie, Eminem feat. Rihanna
‘F— You,’ Cee-Lo
‘Empire State of Mind,’ Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys
‘Need You Know,’ Lady Antebellum

Big Boi: This is a tough one but I gotta go with ‘F— You’ (Cee-Lo) — that’s such a good jam and Dungeon Family never loses.

The BoomBox:

Best Rap Album
‘The Adventures of Bobby Ray,’ B.o.B
‘Thank Me Later,’ Drake
‘Recovery,’ Eminem
‘The Blueprint 3,’ Jay-Z
‘How I Got Over,’ The Roots

Big Boi: A lot of good folks in the mix for this one, all of the albums were on point, but given Eminem has the whole recovery moment of falling and getting back up I gotta give it to Eminem.

The BoomBox:

Best Rap Song
‘Empire State of Mind,’ Shawn Carter, Angela Hunte, Burt Keyes, Alicia Keys, Jane’t “Jnay” Sewell-Ulepic
‘Love the Way You Lie,’ Alexander Grant, Holly Hafferman & Marshall Mathers
‘Not Afraid,’ M. Burnett, J. Evans, Marshall Mathers, L. Resto & M. Samuels
‘Nothin’ On You,’ Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Bruno Mars & Bobby Simmons Jr.
‘On to the Next One,’ Shawn Carter, J. Chaton & K. Dean

Big Boi: I gotta go with the hottest track, which of course I was on ‘Nothin On You.’
