Dappy Wants Slash On New Album
0
UK rapper Dappy, formally of urban rap group N-Dubz, says he wants Slash to feature on his forthcoming solo album. It will follow his collaboration with Brian May on his single "Rock Star". The pair also covered Queen's "We Will Rock You" in a recent live session, though Dappy's singing was a little... well, it was s--t. It seems to rock collaboration has now inspired Dappy to invite another guitar legend to play on his first solo album. "I listen to everything but I've been listening to lots of classical CDs recently. And I love Eighties rock. I want Slash on my next album," Dappy told The Sun. Slash didn't respond to UG's request for comment, because UG didn't try. Why bother asking? The whole story is ridiculous. Meanwhile, Dappy just announced a tour of the UK, should you need a list of places to avoid on certain days. Watch Dappy and Brian May collaborate on "Rock Star" right here:

    When will they realise that collaborating with rock artists won't make us like them.

    All these pop and rap artists want legends of rock because they can't write their own songs.

    Jeez, is this an article or an editorial? Nice bias, bro. Focus on reporting, leave the opinions to the users.

    I really hope this happens! Dappy is one of the best musicians out there today! False. He is one of the worst and I do not like him. /Schrute

    Fail. I think we'd see a Guns N' Roses reunion before Slash would ever play with this loser.

    This is the most hilarious bit - that this twonk thinks that classical music and classic music are the same thing XD

    Maybe the following sentence saying he'd been getting into 80s rock was irrelevant, in which case it's just a shitty article/interview. You choose.

    Dappy is a total knob... He acts cool but he can;t sing, he has no fashion sense (that hats... come on...) and looks like a mugger.

    I absolutely agree to this. Whoever does this, like Brian May, must show that the roads gone downhill... Talk about desperate. The music he makes is shit as well

    I still remember when he used to get owned on Nevermind the Buzzcocks. Fool.

    Indeed. It's nice to see U-G come up with something original rather than just ripping off another site's content, but this is ridiculous. This kind of hack-''journalism'' is precisely why I stay away from bloggers and only work in print.

    Dappy, he's a crap musician, can't sing to save his life, but he's a wicked pianist, and he writes all his own material from scratch so i'll give him props for that. but seriously, slash collaborating with Dappy, it took slash an entire album to figure out he wanted to work with Myles Kennedy... he'll take the phone call and probably accept purely to slap some sense into this tosser

    What a totally biased article. Where has objective reporting gone?

    who are you to say he hasn't? Are you his ipod? How do you type you have no fingers.

    i have been saying this for years! it's getting really old.. but for some reason the kids just don't get that the song they are listening to has already been a hit and the formula for these no talent ass clowns is to steal from a proven artist and secure themselves a hit song... it's really sad it's as if this has actually been accepted as an art form when all it really is is stealing.. but money is the driving factor here and if the original artist can be bought than there is nothing we can do about it.....

    >thinking he cares what you think Don't flatter yourself. When will UGers realize that artists that they don't like don't give a damn what people other than their fans think? Unless, of course, you're Patrick Stump.

    If Slash does this I'll cancel the Pre Order I have on the Fan Pack Edition of his new album, laser him off the Appetite cross I have tattooed on my arm and dedicate the rest of my life to making sure he is left behind at the Rapture.

    Here's one. My foot, Dappy's balls. That would be better. IT won't work for justin bieber though... he has no balls (come on, you know it's true. Can a 17year old guy actually sing that high without being a eunuch?)

    The whole point in journalism is getting two sides to the story. Asking Slash his opinion might have actually made this an article. Also, stop making jokes. And stop giving everyone your opinion, this isn't the daily mail.

    Uhm..I think this song isn't that bad at all. Sounded better than 80% of the stuff on the radio and TV to me..not like the monotone or 100% predictable stuff other pop-artists make.

    Slash has done rap before with Eazy-E and Insane Clown Posse, but Dappy's name on that list would just look like a disgrace. (I know ICP's not exactly the greatest act to be seen with, but Dappy makes 'em look like N.W.A.).

    i used to listen to rock/metal but the fans attitude and unoriginality of the artists made me turn to hip hop.dappy is more original than mostrock/metal now. big up dappy

    Ok, one thing, ur another knob. Are you famous? Are you any better than Patrick Stump? Cos seriously, i doubt it. Patrick Stump is good talent wasted; his early fob music (for some people) was his best. Unfortunately he was the voice and nothing else. He got a bad time cos of haters like you with no talent who dont like change. So, when ur as famous as Patrick Stump, diss him then. But atm, ur just another hater with a closed mind.

    Why do you all give a **** if Slash collaborates with Dappy? you wont have to listen to it will you?

    Drake Revolutionized the game... and now every hack is trying to copy him. That was one of the worst songs I've heard in a long time. I thought Brian May was an intelligent bloke.. not that I can hear his guitar anyways in this crap track but why even associate yourself with crap like this? wtf is a dappy anyways?
