When Outkast’s Big Boi went for dolo last year with Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, the rapper received widespread critical acclaim, which continues with the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.

In an interview with VIBE, Big Boi reveals that he isn’t concerned about his chances of winning any of the three awards for which he is nominated.

“It feels good to be recognized again for my work,” he explained. “At this point in my career, it’s cool just to be nominated. I got seven Grammies in my trophy case at home, so it’s not like I need another one to validate myself or anything. But if I win this year, I’ll happily add to the collection. It’s like collecting comic books. It’s a cool thing to have. I’m just glad people seemed to like the album.”

“It’s coming along great,” he added, revealing that he has plans for a new album, Daddy Fat Sacks: Soul Funk Crusader. “I’m really just trying to make the best music I can. My life right now basically revolves around touring and getting into the studio. When I’m not touring, I’m in the studio. When I’m not in the studio, I’m out on tour. That’s my life right now.”
