The 'I Need You' rapper says he has begun working on a new project as producer for an unknown big name artist.

N-Dubz star Dappy has revealed he has started producing music for some "big" artists in between working on his own solo material.

The 'No Regrets' singer is currently touring across the UK promoting his upcoming debut solo album and has teased some surprise collaborations for next year.

"I've been asked to produce some big acts, but I can't say who," Dappy told the Daily Star this week.

"With my reputation, they would get embarrassed if they were linked to me," he explained. "You'll just have to wait and see."

The 24 year-old rapper scored his first Vodafone Big Top 40 number one in September with 'No Regrets' and recently confirmed his next single will be called 'Rockstar'.

Former The X Factor boy band One Direction recently said they would like to work with Dappy in the future after falling "in love" with his solo material.
