Tinchy Stryder wants Chili

Tinchy Stryder wants to work with Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea.

The British rapper - who has previously collaborated with Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah and hip-hop group N-Dubz - is a big fan of the bassist and would like to collaborate in the studio with him.

Tinchy - who despite being a hip-hop star once admitted to liking the Spice Girls - said: "Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' bass player, is pretty cool, it would be cool to work with him. I'm also trying to introduce the word 'Flee' to everybody... it's for when something is so fly, it's flee. Basically, he stole my word for his name."

Flea isn't the only rock star Tinchy admires. He is also a fan of Blink 182 - especially their drummer Travis Barker.

The grime star says he was "blown away" by the group after watching a documentary about them on TV.

He said: "Travis plays with Blink 182. They're good! I watched some programme about the band and Travis' playing blew me away."
