Professor Green: 'I'll punch opponents in the face'

Professor Green has sent a warning to any would-be opponents by saying he would punch anyone who challenges him to a rap battle "in the face".

The 'Read All About It' rapper started his career by competing in freestyle rap battles, but he has not entered a competition in a while and is tired of people asking to battle with him.

Speaking in an interview with Q Magazine, Green was asked if someone could challenge him in a rap contest. He replied: "Not unless they wanted a punch in the face."

The rapper continued: "If they asked politely I'd politely tell them to fuck off. Every time I do a radio or TV interview, they're like, 'You used to freestyle - so go on then'. I'm not a monkey with a box full of 50 pence pieces.If you saw [former racing driver] Nigel Mansell you wouldn't say, 'give us a quick lap'. It's a bit of a wind up."

Last month, Professor Green revealed that he was working on a new track with Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson. The rapper, who released his second album 'At Your Inconvenience' last year, has revealed that the Iowa metallers' DJ got in touch with him recently and said he was a big fan.

Wilson recently confirmed that the pair were working on a collaboration and revealed that the track will have a "dirtier and grimier sound, with more of a punk rock edge to it".

Professor Green is set to be a constant presence on the festival circuit this summer, with slots at Isle Of Wight Festival, V Festival and Wireless Festival among his booked slots. He also supports The Stone Roses at Manchester's Heaton Park on June 30.
