Rizzle Kicks star's parents sing on new album

Rizzle Kicks made their new album a family affair by inviting Jordan Stephens' parents to sing on the record.

The British hip-hop duo's new album Roaring 20s features collaborations with stars including Jamie Cullum, Fatboy Slim and The Wire actor Dominic West, who recorded a rap for the pair.

However, Stephens was most impressed with a guest appearance from his family members, including his mother, father and cousin, who all sing on the album.

He tells Britain's Capital FM, "On the album... My mom sings a chorus, my dad sings a chorus, my cousin sings a little bit. It actually sounds dope (good)."

The star goes onto reveal the multiple collaborations were inspired by two big-name acts, adding, "There's some different voices. Jamie Cullum - so that's interesting. There's the Dominic West thing... It's not 'featuring this and that'. We're big fans of Gorillaz and Kanye West and the whole thing, which doesn't happen so much in Britain."
