Ed Sheeran likes hip-hop.

From working his own Sheeran pseudo-raps into his music to freestyling with Waka Flocka to appearing on Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club last year, he wants you to know there’s more to him than strumming the acoustic guitar.

In a recent interview with the French media outlet Clique, Sheeran busted out a little bit of the last track on The Marshall Mathers LP -- Eminem’s “Criminal.”
