Since Straight Outta Compton’s huge box office success, hip-hop biopics have become in great demand. Tupac‘s biopic, All Eyez on Me, is hitting theaters next month. And BET is working on a Nas biopic.

That’s only the beginning.

HipHopDX recently spoke with Big Boi, one-half of the legendary duo, OutKast. Boi mostly talked about his new solo album, Boomiverse, which is dropping later this year.

However, the interviewer got the chance to asked him about the prospects of an Outkast movie. Boi talked like someone who’s been on it for a while.

Here’s how he answered:

“Me and [André 3000] just spoke about it last week when I was in New York. I think he might have been taking a couple meetings talking to people and then I got a couple of people in mind that I’ma talk to, one of them being Lee Daniels who I just did the TV show Star with so yeah all that’s coming and we just know it’s time to do it. It’s coming!”

Lee Daniels doing the OutKast movie? That can be…interesting.

When asked about who would play him, Big Boi took a play out of the Ice Cube playbook:

“Shit, I don’t know, maybe one of my sons could do it cause they look exactly like me and they know all the words to all the raps so they probably could pull it off, and they know me so I may have to do the Cube move and pick one of my sons to play me”

Cube got his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. to play himself in the Straight Outta Compton movie. He killed it.
