The 'Stereo Typical' hip-hop duo have revealed the story behind the chorus of their current single.

Rizzle Kicks have revealed the chorus sample from their Big Top 40 hit 'Mama Do The Hump' was unwanted before they chose to use it.

The 'Down With The Trumpets' rappers worked with Fatboy Slim on the record, and claim the dance producer has had the sample for years.

"Norman probably made the beats to 'Mama' 10 years ago," Rizzle Kicks' Jordan Stephens told the Daily Star. "He has all these beats and samples just sitting on his computer, so he played us a whole load of them.

"There were some he said we couldn't have and then he played this sample of a woman called Bobbie Gentry," he explained. "As soon as we heard that we were like: 'Let's go for it'. Norman was glad because he said the hook had been around on his computer for ages and nobody else wanted it."

The hip-hop duo also revealed that 'Homewrecker' is likely to be the next single released from their debut album 'Stereo Typical'.

Rizzle Kicks' Jordan is celebrating his 20th birthday today (20th January) and has already received a birthday message on Twitter from his 'Heart Skips A Beat' collaborator Olly Murs.
