Kid Rock is taking rapper T.I. in a "very different direction".

The American singer-songwriter has been working with the 'I'm Back' rapper - who was recently released from prison following his 2007 conviction for weapons charges - to create a "bluesy vibe" for his next record.

Rock told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've done a track with T.I. called 'Wanted'. I took him in a very different direction with steel guitars. It's a very bluesy country-fried vibe.

"Then we put these big beats on it and he just blazed it."

The track - which is expected to feature on the rap star's upcoming comeback album 'King Uncaged' - started out as a mash-up with Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead or Alive'.

Rock - who has supported Bon Jovi on a number of dates during their residency at London's 02 Arena - explained: "Me and Jon (Bon Jovi) had talked about mashing up my song 'Cowboy' with Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead or Alive'. T.I. heard it and really wanted to run with it.

"But we changed the whole track so there are no elements of those songs, except for the word 'Wanted'."

T.I.'s new LP will also feature a collaboration with 'Alejandro' hitmaker Lady Gaga.

He recently said: "She knows what she's doing. She knows exactly what she wants people to think and say. She does everything that she needs to.

"I think she's an entertainer, in all aspects of the word. She's a classic, all-round entertainer. A global star."
