Tom Felton of ‘Harry Potter’ Wants to Rap
Call him MixMaster Malfoy, or perhaps, he'll star in a rap duo named DJ Jazzy Draco and the Fresh Half Blood Prince. Straight out of our, 'Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction' File, Tom Felton, the actor who plays Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, is taking his talents from the Quidditch field to the rap game. Yes, we're serious.
The 23-year-old actor told the UK newspaper, The Sun, "I was thinking of doing some N-Dubz-style stuff. I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene." Felton specifically named Dappy of N-Dubz as an inspiration. The rap-group, who hail from London, are well known for the grime-style club anthems, particularly their top-10 hit in the UK, 'I Need You'.
Apparently Hogwart's Public Enemy No. 1 will also be switching up his style to go along with his new rap persona. Felton, who will star in the Harry Potter saga's final installment due out this Friday, also added, "I'm going to change my image -- backward caps, the lot." We wonder if this will also include some bling? Perhaps a yellow-diamond encrusted Golden Snitch?
While Felton is keeping mum about the details of his project, saying, "It's still under wraps, so I can't really talk about it," The Sun has confirmed that Tom has signed a record deal with an independent label. If this is the case, it is only safe to assume the Felton must have some skills as a rapper.
We here at PopCrush are impatiently awaiting the release of a single from Felton. Until then, we can only dream what his first song will be called? Maybe 'Straight Outta Hogwarts'? Or even 'Muggles Just Don't Understand'?
