Speaking to The Sun, he claimed: “If Zayn wants a rap career, just because of who he is, he is going to sell records.
“But if he wants to be credible he has to be with the right people.”
He added: “I’d happily sign him up to my label, mentor him and have him working with the biggest rappers on the planet.”
This comes after Zayn’s close friend naughty boy announced that Zayn is “actually quite a good rapper”
Cent then went on to talk about music Mogul Simon Cowell : “I have always wanted to work with Simon, so this could be a joint venture.
“There is no doubt that members of One Direction are going to launch solo careers, and sometimes the bravest go on to be the biggest. Look at Justin Timberlake.”
