Idris Elba keen to work with A$AP Rocky on future projects

CREATIVE: Idris Elba

IDRIS ELBA has shared plans of a potential collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky, in both music and movies.

In an interview with Beats 1 radio host Matt Wilkinson, the Yardie director shared that he;s a big fan of the LSD rapper and admitted that they always talk about working together.

"I love A$AP, he’s a good soul," he said. "Every time we meet each other, we’re like, 'Let’s work'."

"He wants to act - He does act. I want to do music. So we just collaborate and we nearly made it happen. (Rapper) Skepta is a good friend also, and they connect. So we're just in a circle where there’s a possibility. There’s no 'nos' in this game."

Elba launched his own record label, 7Wallace Music, last month and signed his first artist, French-Cameroonian James BKS.

"James is a rare find," Elba adds. "His hip-hop sensibilities transfer to the other music he makes, he’s a nice person to work with and is gonna be a strong artist for the future. It’s a huge move for 7Wallace, a small indie label."
