P Diddy 'rooting for UK'
P Diddy is "rooting for the UK" and working with Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah and Skepta.
The 'Every Breath You take' rapper is poised to release his sixth studio album 'Last Train to Paris' and has secured bright young British rappers Tinchy and Tinie to appear on a remix of his single 'Hello Good Morning'.
Diddy told RWD magazine: "I'm actually rooting for the UK. I love the UK, I love the artists, the vibe, the style, the swag.
"I think Tinie is doing something for us but not on the grime mix. He's on one of the UK remixes of 'Hello Good Morning' with Tinchy Stryder."
He also said he has plans for North London MC and producer Skepta to do a grime remix of the single - and took to twitter to personally track down the artist.
Diddy added: "I want Skepta to do a straight, dirty, authentic grime remix where I redo the vocals, the beats and everything. So I hit up everyone on Twitter and Skepta hit me right back. He was buggin'.
"I think that's happening organically. It's not pre-meditated. I didn't like go and give it to some A and Rs and say 'go get me Skepta.' This was designed by God and by the people.
"I put it on Twitter, people hit me back, I got at Skepta, we had a vibe on the phone. I said 'I don't know what's gonna happen with it, but we're gonna try and make it happen.' It's serious though, it's definitely something we're going to be getting into."
Diddy - the impresario behind New York's Bad Boy record label - also said he is on the verge of signing a British artist, whom he describes as "London's best kept secret", but remained tight lipped about who the mystery rapper could be.Posted on 23 Apr 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
