The chart-topping rapper also delivered some freestyle verses and revealed he was going to Africa to hear nature whilst he was in the studio.
He said: "We have to go to what is known as Africa. I just need to go and find out what it's really called and grab the soil and cook five meals a day so the metabolism stays up and have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open, so you can hear nature while we're recording."
