Believe it or not US rapper Nas seems to know a thing or two about the UK music scene and we’re not just talking about Amy Winehouse. On Tuesday he shouted out a rather unlikely pair of artists that had impressed him with a freestyle: Rizzle Kicks.

The Illmatic star tweeted:

However this isn’t as surprising as you might think, since the freestyle Nas is referring to was recorded to the beat of his own track, Nasty. Starting to connect the dots now right?

Could we see a hook up between Rizzle Kicks and Nas sometime soon? Probably not, but we would definitely be intrigued to hear what a collaboration between the three would sound like.
