With the 56th Annual Grammy Awards quickly approaching, Outkast‘s Big Boi is reliving what it felt like when the rap duo won Album of the Year for 2003’s double album, Speakerbox/The Love Below.
“[Andre 3000] and I were in L.A. with 30 members of our extended families, who also attended the awards,” he tells Billboard. “We had the hotel on lockdown with so many rooms on different floors. It was like a family reunion. This was a special moment because the Grammy is one of the most prestigious prizes in music.”
He adds, “Winning Album of the Year was the equivalent of winning a Super Bowl ring. To be the best album of all the genres is the highest honor in music and is one of the highlights of my career.”
The Grammys air live on CBS this Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET.
