Jay-Z May Collaborate with Oasis’ Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher

has urged Liam Gallagher to call him about a collaboration after learning hip-hop star Snoop Dogg wants to work with Liam’s brother Noel.

Noel recently quit Oasis following a series of rows with his brother. He also clashed with Jay-Z last year after criticizing the decision to have the rapper headline the Glastonbury music festival.

“I hear Snoop Dogg might be teaming up with Noel. If that’s the case then I would love to work with Liam,” Jay-Z said. “Their music is tight and I think we could blend our styles well. When I teamed up with Linkin Park nobody expected that to work but we made a massive success of it. The same could happen with Liam. When you have two artists like us in a room just throwing about ideas you come up with something brilliant fairly easily. I don’t know what he is up to now but he can give me a call.”

recently said he wants to make Noel his first signing to EMI subsidiary Priority Records, for who he has just been made creative director. “Would I sign Noel Gallagher? Hell yeah. I’m definitely trying to find a rock band right now. Would I collaborate with him? Yeah, definitely. Set it up… I love his style,” he said.

If Jay-Z were to work with Liam, the two could also bond over soccer. The hip-hop mogul - who already co-owns the New Jersey Nets basketball team - has fallen in love with the sport and is considering investing in a British team after recently watching Liam’s beloved Manchester City play Arsenal.

“I loved it. I won’t pretend I know everything about soccer but it was an amazing match. We had a great day out,” the rap star told The Sun newspaper. “I keep hearing I am a big Manchester City fan but that’s not true. I follow Arsenal. People keep asking me if I would ever invest in an English club. All I can say is that I am pretty busy at the moment with the Nets but you can never say never. I am a businessman and if the right deal comes along you never know what might happen.”
