Ed Sheeran name-checks Ipswich in a swat on his latest album

Ed Sheeran pronounced name-checking Ipswich in an Eminem partnership from his new manuscript was a personal highlight.

No. 6 Collaborations Project, expelled on Friday, facilities hook-ups with artists including Stormzy.

In Remember a Name, with a Detroit rapper and 50 Cent, Sheeran raps: “I was innate a misfit / Grew adult 10 miles from a city of Ipswich”.

He told BBC Radio 1 it was “funny [as] Eminem would never ever know where Ipswich is”.

The 28-year-old singer-songwriter, who lives nearby Framlingham in Suffolk, will lapse to perform on home county territory when he plays 4 nights during Ipswich’s Chantry Park in August.

Eminem would “never ever” know where Ipswich is, pronounced Ed Sheeran

Sheeran pronounced he had always wanted to record dual songs with Eminem – one an “introspective, storytelling” track, and a other a “nod towards a cheekier songs” from a rapper’s early albums.

After achieving a initial aim with River, his prior partnership with Eminem, Sheeran pronounced he wanted to get 50 Cent concerned to grasp a second.

“Then we walked into Eminem’s sauce room and 50 Cent was in there, and we was like: this has to be meant to be,” he said.

  • Sheeran authorised to keep pub signs
  • Ed Sheeran muster curated by dad
  • Sheeran paid £6,200 for pig statue

Sheeran pronounced he had now “ticked my dual boxes”, though brushed off critique of his rapping style.

“If we could have told a 12-year-old me we would swat on a strain with Eminem when we was older…” he said.

“So many people contend that we can’t swat though I’m authorised on a strain with Eminem and 50 Cent – because does it matter?”
