Rizzle Kicks want to collaborate with Ed Sheeran.

The hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks - comprised of Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule - think it would be "brilliant" to pen a song with their close friend but expect the process to happen naturally.

Harley, 20, exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Ed's been a good friend of ours for a while so it's definitely something [we'd consider]... If it happens it will happen naturally, we'll just end up in the studio at the same time."

Jordan, also 20, added: "We see Ed all the time and he genuinely is a good friend. He's powering through his next album already, we're going through it. If there's a situation in which we create something that'd be brilliant!"

The 'Mama Do The Hump' singers got the crowd going at Nando's GigNics event on Saturday (09.06.12) in London's Haggerston Park, storming onto the stage to freestyle with surprise guest and BRIT Award-winner Ed.

The Brighton-born rappers also revealed they are inspired by the UK music scene and would love to team up with Plan B and Mark Ronson.

Jordan enthused: "We've been recently really inspired by Plan B. We went to the premiere for 'Ill Manors', it was amazing. His next album I think was the soundtrack so if that's anything to go by, amazing!

"It's a bit predictable but I'd genuinely love to do a track with Mark Ronson. I think that'd be brilliant! Oh my god, I'd love to do a song with a singer called Lianne La Havas who is unreal. If you listen to this girl - wow, she's amazing."

Harley added: "Will Smith needs to drop a verse on our tune. End of. He is great."

The boys were joined by Cover Drive and Stooche on stage, whilst Little Mix and JLS also attended to celebrate the first of three Nando's GigNics this summer.
