A for effort, Ed.

Only a brave person would attempt to take on rapping an Eminem song. It turns out, that person is Ed Sheeran.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' singer recently stopped by French media outlet Clique for an interview and dropped a few lines a capella from Eminem's 'The Marshall Mather LP' track 'Criminal.'

Could this be the beginning of Ed Sheeran's career move towards rap? Maybe not. But a collaboration with Eminem wouldn't go a miss. 

Last year Ed Sheeran revealed that he would be taking a break from social media.

"I've had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes," he wrote on Instagram. "So I'm taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed."
