Grimmy: 'I Felt A Bit Stupid Beside 50 Cent'
The new host of Relentless Ultra Presents Soundchain talks being taken for a ride with Fiddy...
Nick Grimshaw, our new host of Relentless Ultra Presents Soundchain, has revealed what it was like to be driven around New York's Lower East Side by none other than 50 Cent while recording the brand new series.
In an interview with Metro, the recently unveiled X Factor judge recalled: "All the neighbours were running out in the street and screaming after him. Everyone in New York knows who he is. All these old grannies were leaning out the door like, 'Yo Fiddy! I got you!'
"I mean, I just felt a bit stupid beside him, really."
On the forthcoming new series, which officially kicks off on Friday 3rd July at 11pm on MTV Music and features Florence + The Machine, Rudimental, Fiddy and more, he said: "It's a chance to have a proper conversation about music. I love having guests on in the morning but you can't that in-depth thing.
"This is all about the journey - from the first time they heard music, their first gigs."
