As Cardi B continues to skyrocket, OutKast's Big Boi says he's a fan.

"I think with Cardi B, you saw her personality on her TV show, and when she made music, she was herself," Big Boi said in a new interview with The Daily Beast. "People buy into other people, so I applaud her wholeheartedly. I’m just waiting to see what she gonna put out next."

Big Boi was discussing acts he follows and supports, including the likes of friends such as Run the Jewels, Janelle Monáe, Phantogram and BADBADNOTGOOD.

Cardi B's breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" has climbed to No. 2 on the U.S. charts, behind Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," but she has faced some critics, largely because of her unique transition from appearing on VH1's Love & Hip Hop: New York to making music.

In Big Boi's interview, he also addressed that elusive and increasingly unlikely new OutKast album. "You’ve gotta talk to Jesus, man," he said, maintaining he is "always open" should "plans and stars align one day."
