Posh Spice Becomes Hip-Hop Star

Former SPICE GIRL VICTORIA BECKHAM is planning to reinvent herself as a hip-hop artist, with the help of rap mogul DAMON DASH.

The OUT OF YOUR MIND singer has been attempting to resuscitate her solo career after poor chart placings, and now looks set for a totally fresh approach to her music.

After meeting Dash during an April (03) trip to New York, Victoria, 29, was signed up to be the face of his and JAY-Z's fashion line ROC-A-WEAR - and the producer also persuaded her to record tracks in the studio with him.

A source tells British tabloid THE DAILY MIRROR, "It's amazing stuff. You'd have no idea it was POSH SPICE singing on the tracks. It's a complete transformation.

"Damon introduced her to hardcore hip-hop stars like OL' DIRTY BASTARD and Jay-Z. They all knew who she was and loved her go-getting attitude. She's had so much stick in the past in Britain for her solo stuff and now she's going to stop doing dancy pop and record the kind of songs she likes instead.

"Damon's given her songs a much harder backbeat, her new sound will definitely stun the critics."

Along with her husband, English soccer star DAVID BECKHAM and sons BROOKLYN and ROMEO, Victoria has jetted off to New York again, for a high-profile photoshoot for AMERICAN VOGUE with respected photographer MARIO TESTINO.

The couple will also present an award at the MTV MUSIC AWARDS on Saturday (31MAY03).
