(Newser) – The Hills’ Spencer Pratt has designs on the rap genre, MTV reports. “I’ve always known that I secretly am the hottest rapper in the game,” said the exceedingly white reality star, who plans to record an album on the heels of his single, I’m a Celebrity. The self-glossed “white Jay-Z” insists that track is not a plug for his upcoming appearance on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!

“I didn’t feel the urge until Asher Roth started hitting the airwaves and—no offense to Asher Roth—somebody with some real swagger needed to come into the game,” Pratt said. “So, I’ll challenge him. I’ll challenge him to a freestyle or whatever,” he vowed, adding, “I’m doing the baller thing. I’m more for the streets.”
