British rapper Dappy wants Queen legend Brian May to make him a guitar after hearing how the rock legend crafted his first instrument out of an old fireplace.

The unlikely pair has teamed up to collaborate on a new track, entitled Rockstar, after the legendary guitarist reached out to the N-Dubz frontman to praise him for his hit solo song No Regrets.

After learning May built a guitar using wood from his father's home, Dappy is eager for the star to help him make an instrument for himself.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I would love Brian to make me a guitar. He told me all about his guitar that he made with his dad out of wood from a fireplace in his old house.

"He even got a five-sided coin to put in the neck and he replaced the Queen's head with his own head. Now that's his pluck, so I want one with my head on it."

He also reveals May has become his musical mentor since their studio session, adding, "Brian bigged me up for my last single and said I should win an (British songwriting award) Ivor Novello for lyrics.

"He told me: 'You are a very different artist and unique, so carry on doing what you're doing. There's nobody else challenging you.'"

Didn't Freddie Mercury win that same award for Killer Queen? If anyone wants to know if the standards for awards are diminishing greatly..

Don't get me wrong, the lyrics are very good, but worthy of a prestigious award like this?

I don't know why this piss poor wanker is famous, but surely it'd make more sense to go to a luthier instead of wasting Brian's time?

Anybody who's ever made stuff (I sew, personally- just finished a replica of Brian's white satin Zandra Rhodes top that's taken me weeks!) knows exactly how that feels, whether it's sewing, knitting, putting a shed up, making your own goddam guitars....
You've juuuuust finished whatever labour of love has taken every minute of your spare time for weeks on end, and some wanker squeals "Ooooh, make me one!". Because obviously, you've got nothing better to do and it took you all of five minutes anyway.
Then again, I'm not one of those people who sews because I love sewing, I sew because I want a Zandra-Rhodes-style-top of my own. I bet Brian's just rolled his eyes, made an excuse involving badgers and given the prick the Guyton chap's number.
