Pro Green Wants Florence + The Machine Collabo

The MC isn't bitter about Flo beating him to No.1 in the album chart...

Professor Green has revealed he would love to collaborate with Florence + the Machine.

Despite Florence's Ceremonials album beating Pro's sophomore LP, At Your Inconvenience, to the top of the album chart last month, Green has insisted there are no hard feelings and he's keen to work with the 25-year old songstress.

Speaking to the Daily Star, The Prof - real name Stephen Manderson - admitted: "I was p****d off when I realised my record was coming out on the same day as Florence, but I still bought her record."

“I didn’t mind the battle. It was wicked just being a part of that race to be No 1. My first album Alive Till I’m Dead eventually reached No 2, so everyone assumed I wanted a No 1 this time."

He continued: “But that wasn’t the case. What mattered most was that At Your Inconvenience sold more in its first week than the previous album did. That’s true progression.”

The Read All About It MC went on to claim: "Florence has got a great voice. I’d love to work with her. She’s got such a different out­look on music to anyone else out there. Together we’d be able to come up with something great.”

Earlier this week, Green revealed that he's heard from friend Lily Allen following the birth of her first child, with the 28-year old rapper saying she messaged him saying "I'm a mum."
