Example has said that Noel Gallagher had all "the ideas" in Oasis.

The rapper, who was talking to the Daily Star, said he hoped the High Flying Birds man won the Brit Award for Best British Male Solo Artist even though he had been nominated himself.

Comparing Noel to his brother, Liam Gallagher, he said:

"When you hear Noel's album, and you heard the Beady Eye stuff, it's plain to see Noel was the talent, the songwriter. Liam is a star and an amazing frontman, but the ideas were all Noel's."

Last month (December 5), Example revealed that his new album will sound like a mixture of The Strokes, Skrillex and Chase & Status. The rapper told NME that he would be embracing a rockier direction for the follow-up to his third album "Playing In The Shadows", which was released in September 2011.

Earlier this week, Example received Brit Award nominations for Best British Male Solo Artist and Best British Single for his track "Changed The Way You Kissed Me". Visit Brits.co.uk for the full list of nominees.

The Brit Awards will take place at London's O2 Arena on February 21. Blur will receive the Outstanding Contribution To Music award at the 2012 event.

Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    ^I thought this would have been next week's article. Either one of these anyways. "Liam states that Example is a 'f***n' shite rapper who is as good as using sandpaper for a f***n' colonoscopy exam"" "Noel says that Example is "this generation's Notorious B.I.G.""
    Do you guys pay N.M.E. or just out and out rip them off? Ain't it bad enough there's nothing hardly on this site worth reading? My suggestion to the staff; stick to the tabs.
    Next week: Example has said "they sky is blue, the majority of guitars have six strings, and UGer post a lot of hate in the comments sections of news articles."
    Example: Layne Staley was the main source of feeling behind Alice in Chains. What? I thought we were just giving examples of random, well-known facts. (I'd like to add that, while I agree that Noel was the driving force behind Oasis, the High Flying Birds ****ing sucked, even compared to Beady Eye.)
    Example who?! funny to find a rapper supporting Noel... Noel always insulted them. Comparing Noel solo to Beady Eye", Noel received 21 negative reviews, Liam only one negative. If you dont have your mind stuck in the UK only, where Noel is a media darling. "The ideas were all Noels"...right, as in a dictatorship. Also the idea to leave Oasis 3 times.
