Fun Facts About Idris Elba
What's playing on his iPod? Well, and this is not a plug—it's the truth—but I'm actually in the studio making music. I'm a DJ, and I'm making an album, so I'm not listening to anybody, because it's tough for me to make music when I've got other people's music in my ear. My music is a hybrid of everything from jazz and reggae to hip-hop to soul. I'm really proud of it. I just released a lead single in England, which is doing pretty well on the underground circuit, a song called "Best I Can." So, honestly, I'm listing to Driis. ... My single, "In Other Words," will be released in the U.S. in the fall. You can check it out on MySpace.com/IdrisMusic.
