Ashley Cole has told MTV News that he’d like to work in the music industry after his football career finishes.
Speaking at the opening of Nike’s revamped Oxford Street store the Chelsea leftback said he’d been inspired by hanging out with a certain UK rapper.
“I’m met Tinchy Stryder a few times,” Ashley explained. “He’s from East London where I grew up too. It’s nice to see him doing well. Coming from the same area and growing up with the same background, you get to know these guys better.”
Asked directly if he’d like his own record label the England defender said: “I hope so. I there are a few people I’ve spoke to and other players who are involved in music.
“I love listening to music and meeting guys like Tinchy. So it’s something I’d like to do when I’m finished.”
Quizzed on what he listened to in the dressing room Ash’ namechecked Stryder and said: “I like Tinie Tempah, some 50 Cent, Eminem. As long as it gets me pumped for the game it’s good.”
