Big Boi is a big Game of Thrones fan. Huge, in fact.

We asked the hip-hop artist about his favorite show at FANDOM’s Comic-Con party, which he headlined.

First, as a musical artist, we wanted to get his take on Ed Sheeran’s polarizing cameo appearance in the Season 7 premiere, entitled Dragonstone.

“I was cool with it,” Big Boi told FANDOM. “A lot of people were like, ‘oh no, why?’ It’s Ed Sheeran! [expletive]”

So if he could get written into the show, who would Big Boi play?

“I would like to be one of the Unsullied … but keep my balls,” he explained. “So I can get with the girl.”

Game of Thrones isn’t the only show Big Boi watches, especially when he’s got some down time promoting his new record, Boomiverse.

“I’ve been looking at GLOW — the gorgeous ladies of wrestling,” he says of his binge viewing habits. “I grew up on that. It was kinda nostalgic.” See why Big Boi particularly loves the El Chapo series as well.

Finally, find out if Big Boi is #TeamMarvel or #TeamDC by watching the clip below.
