Dizzee Rascal wants to work with Oasis despite Jay-Z comments

Rapper wants Noel Gallagher for new project

Dizzee Rascal has said he wants to work with Noel Gallagher – despite the Oasis guitarist’s opposition to Jay-Z playing Glastonbury this year

Speaking to BBC Radio 1, the British rapper said he did not believe Gallagher was against hip-hop.

“I don’t think he hates hip-hop. Maybe he just felt a way about Jay-Z being at Glastonbury or hip-hop being at Glastonbury. He’s into music,” said Dizzee Rascal. “There must be some hip-hop over the years that he must’ve liked, or Liam. They’re party animals, so somewhere they must’ve enjoyed some hip-hop track.”

Dizzee, who collaborated with Arctic Monkeys on the track ‘Temptation Greets You Like A Naughty Friend’ in 2007, added that he was now keen to combine his and the main Oasis songwriter’s talents.

“Yeah [I’d still like to work with Noel]. That’s another thing to me like working with the Arctic Monkeys,” he said. “Obviously they’re [Oasis] older and they set their bar from earlier.”
