Robbie Williams Is Rapping Again, So That's Great

The year of 2016 has been a pretty dramatic year, although it has mostly been for terrible events. Finally, though, we have some good news... Robbie Williams is rapping again.

Remember 'Rude Box'? Of course you do. It was arguably the man's seminal effort. It was the sound of a 35-year-old male pushing the very boundaries of what it meant to be a pop star.

Here's a reminder of it if you can't remember:

Robbie Williams > Nas, I think you'll agree.

Well, that was 10 years ago. Robbie is now back to change the game once again.

NME have reported that the singer has been back in the studio and has been recording for a new album while working with Example.

The pair went to record new music for Williams' 11th album with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid last month.

Talking to Digital Spy about what went down in the studio, Example said that he and Williams had a track laid down and they, 'just started freestyling over the top of it'. He said: "[We were] singing and rapping absolute gobbledygook and hoping that an idea pops up.

"I rapped on it and Robbie did a half-spoken word rap thing - a bit like [Underworld's] 'Born Slippy'. That sort of vibe."

He added that he's not sure it will ever come out so if that is the case I will personally begin a Kickstarter campaign to see that it is definitely released.
