Idris Elba may not be playing James Bond in an up and coming motion picture, however, the British film star wants to with A$AP Rocky in music or acting.
Elba, who likewise DJs, talked with Beats 1 radio on Tuesday (Aug. 28) about his association with Rocky, applauding the Testing rapper. “I love A$AP, he’s a good soul,” the actor said. While Elba might want to work with Flacko on music, he says Rocky is hoping to do some acting.
“And every time we meet each other we’re like, ‘Let’s work.’ Not necessarily music. He wants to act, he does act, I want to do music,” Elba said. “So we just collaborate and we nearly made it happen… It hasn’t happened. Skepta is a good friend also, and they connect. So we’re just in a circle where there’s a possibility.”
In spite of the fact that they haven’t formally started taking a shot at a joint effort, Elba says it’s conceivable.”There’s no ‘nos’ in this game,” he said. “I think what’s happening with artists [is] people are reaching out in different genres and going, ‘Hey.'” Plus, the two have a mutual friend and producer, Hector Delgado.
While fans sit tight for the Rocky and Elba collab, Flacko as of late connected up with A$AP Ant for the new track “Mario Cart.” The record finds the two rapping over a Frans and A.R.- delivered beat.
