What is Liam Payne doing now that One Direction is on a break? Of course, it has something to do with music. But apparently, this 1D member has another talent – rapping!

TMZ reported that Liam had a rapping session with producers TM 88 from 808 Mafia and Juicy J in Malibu. According to the site, those who heard Liam’s rap claimed that the 1D lad was pretty good!

The site wrote:

“Here’s the kicker … everyone who’s heard the material says Liam’s an unbelievable rapper. He’s already got one up on a lot of MCs because he didn’t need a pen or pad to write down his verses — he opted for freestyle.”

So, it looks like Liam’s got the talent for rapping. As mentioned on TMZ, Liam had 5 tracks during the session where he showed his rapping skills. The site reported that his style sounds like Canadian rapper Drake hitting the verse.

Hollywood Life noted that this wasn’t the first time that Liam was reported to work with Juicy J. Earlier, Juicy J posted a Snapchat video asking fans if they wanted to hear their collaboration. However, he didn’t reveal further details.

According to Mail Online, Juicy J previously mentioned about them working together. The US artist revealed that the 1D lad is “super talented.”

“That guy is super talented, super talented, you know what I’m saying? And so we are definitely working on a lot of different things,” he said.

Will Liam Payne launch his rapping career anytime soon? Does that mean he’ll go on with a solo debut?

Meanwhile, Liam isn’t the only one who’s working on his music career. Harry Styles was reported to have co-written four new songs on his own. Jay Z even plans on signing him.

“I can get him working with the bigger artists, the biggest producers – and have him as the biggest artist in the world within a year,” Jay Z admitted.
