(CBS Local) As one half of the legendary hip-hop crew Outkast, Big Boi's musical influences flow far and wide. His forthcoming album, Viscous Lies And Dangerous Rumors, promises a dynamic range of sonic styles.

But if Big Boi had his way, he would have a record with acoustic rock band and recently announced Grammy nominees, Mumford & Sons, whom he counts among his favorites.

"I'm biased because Mumford & Sons is one of my favorite groups," he told CBS Local, when asked about the group's GRAMMY chances. "What really turned me on to the Mumford & Sons–that's why I like the GRAMMYS– is the live performances. When I saw them perform with the Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan, it blew me away. Killed it. I was looking for some banjo on this album after that." A lot more including a stream of the interview.
