Elton John Wants To Make Hip-Hop Records

While Elton John isn't quite sure what his next record is going to sound like, he admits that he would like to incorporate some hip-hop.

"I'd love to," he said when asked by Rolling Stone if he wanted to do some hip-hop on the album. "I just don't know how to do it. I do love electronica. So, for me, I'd have to work with someone who knows about it, like a Pharrell or a Kanye [West], who I respect tremendously. I'd love to do that. It's just a matter of when and where and, should I do it, the mood that I'm in. You can never tell. It's happenstance and luck, basically."

John added that when it comes to a different type of music, you 'can't knock it until you try it.'

"You never can knock anybody else's type of music until you try it. I could never do a rap record because I wouldn't know where to start. You can learn so much from working with somebody that does. In the studio with Kanye, when I was doing that in Honolulu, he was just on fire. It was amazing to watch. You knew you were in the presence of greatness."
