During an appearance with French media outlet Clique, Ed Sheeran attempted to get in touch with his inner rapper. He performed a couple of lines acapella from Eminem's infamous song "Criminal" during a video interview. While Ed has cited a number of rappers, including Eminem, as inspirations, it doesn't look like he has a future as a hip-hop star budding anytime soon. We haven't seen this much of a white rap struggle since that unintelligible Iggy Azalea vine went viral. Nonetheless, Sheeran is a talented singer who's really just messing around, so his admittedly rough rapping skills are probably no concern to him.
Ever since the release of his own hugely successful album X in 2014, Sheeran has been busy collaborating with artists like Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the Weeknd, and Justin Bieber. He even broke a Spotify record, becoming the first artist to ever top 500 million streams on a single song. Something tell us his questionable hip-hop chops aren't going to stop his meteoric rise.
