"I feel like we've been doing this for so long, five or six years," he told news.com.au.

"And we're kind of like saying, well, let's just do what's natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time."

Redfoo - who is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy - further insisted that the duo have no plans to record together in future, explaining: "I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but we're always family.

"He'll always be my nephew, I'll always be his uncle."
