Jay Z wants Chris Martin

Jay-Z has revealed a desire to work with Chris Martin again.

The rapper has described the Coldplay frontman as "one of the geniuses of our generation" and when asked if he would like to work with him again he replied, "If he'll allow me... any time you can collaborate with that sort of genius, you jump at the chance, I don't care who you are."

Coldplay and Jay-Z worked together in 2006 on his song Beach Chair, while he appeared on their 2008 track Lost.

Jay Z added in the interview: ''He's a brother from another mother.  I see him more than my own brother. Actually, I do!"

Jay-Z and Chris Martin are set to perform together on New Year's Eve at the Cosmopolitan casino in Las Vegas.
