London rapper Wretch 32 wants to help his musician friend Ed Sheeran explore hip-hop music on the follow-up to his huge debut album, '+'.
The rapper - who previously collaborated with the singer-songwriter on 2012 track 'Hush Little Baby' as well as a remix of 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' - has offered to lay down a rhyme on the follow-up to Ed's debut '+' as he'd ''love'' to hear his pal venture into the new genre of music.
Wretch told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Me and Ed have been working together for years. I would help him out if he helped me out with my singing or guitar playing. We need to do a trade.
''The great thing about working together now is people are finally paying attention as we're getting bigger.''
Until he and Ed get together again, Wretch is showing a different side to his personality on new single 'Blackout', which he hopes will be a ''global'' success.
He continued: ''It's the up-tempo party side of me. My previous material maybe didn't reflect that. When I heard this beat it reminded me of being out having a good time and I converted that vibe into a song.
''I have a global record now ready to break around the world.''
