Russell Brand has been focused on making waves in politics lately, however, according to reports, he’s set to take some time out to make a rap album. Yes, really.

The comedian-turned-political commentator has apparently penned a number of love poems, which he has decided to set to music.

A source tells The Sun that Russell has even roped in a chart-topping producer to help him make sure the tracks are a success.

“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],” the source states. “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.”

While Russell apparently has “no plans to release it as an official chart single”, there is a possibility that he could change his mind.

“Who knows what this project could actually turn in to,” the source continues. “Naughty Boy has worked with the likes of One Direction, Cheryl Cole and Sam Smith, so has lots of experience in turning a track into a massive hit.

“No one knows what Russell is going to sound like rapping — if he’s as good as Eminem then it may well become a huge single.”

In recent weeks, Russell appears to have spent most of his time creating YouTube videos and engaging in a war of words with Fox News’s presenters.

He’s also weighed in on the Scottish Independence debate, attacking the Scottish National Party.
