Professor Green wants to end his war of words with James Arthur.
The 33-year-old rapper has endured a rocky relationship with the former 'X Factor' star, having previously blasted fans who compared him to the 'Say You Won't Let Go' hitmaker.
He previously said: "You can all f**k off and die slowly - he does not look like me."
At the time, James did not appear to be perturbed by Pro's remarks, and he quickly agreed to collaborate with the rap star on a track called 'Little Secrets'.
Although the record was subsequently ditched, James claimed that his writing was still used further down the line, without him being given the credit.
Now, Pro - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - has insisted the situation wasn't of his making and has revealed he would like to end their feud.
The rapper told the Daily Star newspaper: "It was just around the time James was going through all his troubles and the label just didn't want him on it.
"No matter how hard I fought for it, they were never going to say yes and have him on the record. For me, if someone has the talent like he does, then why not?"
Pro suggested he would be open to working with James again and said he is keen to speak with him.
He said: "Why wouldn't I want to work with them? I think me and him need to bump into each other and have a little chat. Not in a bad way - we just need to talk, as everything was made into this huge thing.
"But I don't think much of it came from either of us. The best thing would be just to bump into each other."
