Roots Manuva wants to work with James Blunt
Rapper isn't joking about working with 'what's his name?'
Roots Manuva has said he wants to collaborate with James Blunt.
Speaking to The Guardian, the rapper - who has previously remixed Athlete - said he thinks unlikely collaborations work well.
"I wouldn’t mind doing something with...what's his name again? James Blunt," he said.
When asked if he was joking, he replied: "No! Because he's so straight and straightforward. Imagine him on one of these weird beats doing a chorus or something, and being so earnest and sincere. That's beyond abstract. That's beyond avant-garde."
'Slime And Reason', Roots Manuva's new album, is released on August 25.
