Russell Brand is making a rap album.

The 39-year-old comedian and actor - who famously dated Katy Perry -has asked to work with 'La La La' hitmaker, Naughty Boy.

A source told 'The Sun on Sunday': "Russell thinks it would be really fun to put some of the poems to music and asked Naughty Boy if he would get involved after getting to know him through his girlfriend Jemima [Khan].

"He will pick out some of his favourite quotes and go into a studio to record them.

"Naughty Boy is then planning to transform them into a spoken-word rap. It's all a bit of fun and there are no plans to release it as an official chart single as yet.

"But who knows what this project could actually turn into."

The poems - which will be taken from Russell's new book, 'rEVOLution', due out in October - are said to heavily feature love and what he has learned from his past romances.

A source said: "No one knows what Russell is going to be like rapping - if he's as good as Eminem then it may well become a huge single."
