Olly Murs has a secret passion for rapping

'Thinking Of Me' singer, Olly Murs, has revealed that he has a secret passion for rapping. 

The star quite likes to spit bars in his spare time and explained to BANG Showbiz that Vanilla Ice's 'Ice Ice Baby' is a personal favourite to tackle, "I'm secretly not a bad rapper, I really like to do a bit of beat boxing, Eminem is always a favourite, or maybe Vanilla Ice, 'Ice Ice Baby' is a classic."

27-year-old Murs recently paired up with hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks for his latest single, 'Heart Skips A Beat', so a transition in musical style might not be too far in the distance. Talking about the working partnership, he added:

"We had the track and there was the idea we wanted to get a rapper on it, and they were getting a great name in the industry and I heard about them and thought we'd check them out."

"So we found out how cool their style was and their rhymes, and they really cool and cheeky, a bit like me, so it works well."
