Outkast's Big Boi has revealed that he wants to work with Kate Bush on his next album.

The hip hop star, who released his last album 'Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty' last year, told Rolling Stone that he is eager to collaborate on a track with the singer for his next LP.

Big Boi – whose real name is Antwan Patton – said:

I want her [Bush] to co-produce something with me. We'd produce a song and write it from scratch. I'd rather get her in a room and not have a plan and just let it come organically – it's not like I've got a song and I'll just be like, 'I want you to sing this part right here.'


The rapper also revealed that he had been a fan of Bush's since childhood and praised her new album '50 Words For Snow', adding: "It's almost like a scene from her diary – she seems to be in love like a motherfucker. Really, really, really in love."

Big Boi is set to release his new album, titled 'Daddy Fat Sax: Soul Funk Crusader', in 2012. Last month, he avoided jail time for drug charges after he was reportedly arrested by customs and border patrol police dogs when he left a cruise ship and was found with ecstasy pills, MDMA and Viagra.

Kate Bush released her 10th studio album '50 Words For Snow' earlier this week. It is her first album of completely new material since the release of 'Aerial' in 2005.
