Lenny Kravitz Going Rap

(Gibson) On his new album, Black and White America, Lenny Kravitz has incorporated more hip-hop into his music than ever before. Guests include Jay-Z and Drake and the singer-guitarist wrote a song with R&B/rap producer Swizz Beatz.

"It's all music, you know?" he told Billboard.com. "I only go where the music takes me, so if I hear it in the track, I'll do it. I won't do something for the sake of, 'Well, this is hip now.'

"When I wrote 'Boongie Drop' I heard a rap in the middle, and I immediately heard Jay's voice and we had collaborated twice before, so I called him and when I went to New York I put him on the track. And then I got on the phone with Drake for ["Sunflower"] before he had even heard the track and he said, 'Yeah, I'll do it. I'm a fan and I love your work and I would love to be on it.' So that was cool." more on this story
