Professor Green to collaborate with Slipknot on 'grimier track'

By
Professor Green and Slipknot's Sid Wilson are planning to collaborate on a new track.

The rapper and DJ have already met up to discuss possible ideas, with Wilson admitting that he wants to create a song with a "punk rock edge to it".

Wilson told NME: "We've not been together in the studio at the same time or anything, but I've got a lot of ideas in the works for him. I ran into him in Australia over at the electronic festival.

"Me and Clown (Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan) went straight there after our tour and I ran into him. I told him I was a total fan and I played his stuff all the time in my truck.

"I just said let's get down and work together. My family's from England and I grew up on grime, jungle and drum'n'bass so it'll be cool to work with someone who's from that world."

When asked what their collaboration would sound like, Wilson added: "It's going to have a DJ sound, but it'll be dirtier and grimier, with more of a punk rock edge to it.

"There'll be some guitars maybe, but you'll definitely have to have your ugly face on when you hear it."

Professor Green reached number three on the UK chart with his second studio album At Your Inconvenience back in November.
