VIDEO:Anfield Rap II? Sturridge is the new Kop idol as striker reveals studio sessions


He's got the moves with his trademark celebration grooves, now Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge could be the man to bring the world the sequel no-one's been waiting for - a new Anfield Rap.
The England striker has revealed he spends his time off the pitch in a studio producing music with a friend and says he likes to rap and occasionally sing.
But the bashful rhymemaster, who's told Jay-Z's Life & Times website that he's a fan of Drake, J.Cole and considers Kanye West an 'innovator', would still rather score goals than a record deal.

'I produce some music with one of my friends. It's a range of styles. I can rap. I can sing a little bit. I wouldn't say I'm going to be anything but I can do a little bit,' he told Lifeandtimes.com.
If he could get a few teammates on board, Sturridge appears to the skills to create a new Anfield Rap, a follow-up to the released by Liverpool players, co-written by midfielder Craig Johnston and rapper Derek B,  ahead of the 1988 FA Cup Final. 
That song reached number three in the UK Singles Chart despite being as one critic said, 'inexplicably awful'.

For Sturridge to turn goal scorer to recording artist wouldn't be unprecedented. John Barnes, who featured in the 1988 hit, rapped on New Order's only British number one, World In Motion, the England team's song for the 1990 World Cup.
'John Barnes rapped and Andy Cole rapped but, in this social media age is that kind of thing acceptable. If I ever released anything it'd have to be under an alias,' Sturridge said.
Perhaps he could pay tribute to his Birmingham roots with something like Brum Dan-MC, go with Wu-tang Dan if his material has a bit of an edge or go with the simple, catchy moniker of Ice-D.
'I'm just going to stay in my lane, and that's football,' Sturridge said.
