Spencer Pratt insists that his recently released rap song, “I’m a Celebrity,” isn’t just a promo for his upcoming stint on the reality show, “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” Instead, the newlywed “Hills” star reveals that the song is just a taste of what fans can expect when he does eventually put out his own rap album. Yes, Spencer has plans to release a rap album.
“I’ve always known that I secretly am the hottest rapper in the game,” he told MTV News. “But I didn’t feel the urge until Asher Roth started hitting the airwaves and — no offense to Asher Roth — somebody with some real swagger needed to come into the game. So, I’ll challenge him. I’ll challenge him to a freestyle or whatever.”
He went on to add, “I’m the white Jay-Z in the game. I’m doing the baller thing. I’m more for the streets.”
Pratt — who does have plans to release an album with his equally musically inclined wife, who once hinted at his musical abilities — said that unlike Asher Roth, he’s bringing the baller mentality back to the rap game. “The only person I’m really feeling in the game right now is Soulja Boy and Gucci Mane,” he said, adding that his album will have “big, huge Steve Morales tracks [the producer behind Lil Wayne’s ’Pop Bottles’], so it’ll definitely be big hooks, and I’m going after the ringtone game.”
So, until they hit the studio together, fans of Speidi can also look forward to a tour someday. “We’re a team. We’ll be going on tour together. She’s my #1, like Biggie and Lil’ Kim back in the day.”
