The actor told the U.K.'s Sun that he has a recording deal with an independent label.

"I was thinking of doing some N-Dubz-style stuff," he said of the British hip-hop group. "I am looking to get into the grime rap U.K. scene. I'm going to change my image -- backward caps, the lot."

He added that he couldn't reveal further details.

"It's still under wraps, so I can't really talk about it," he said.

Felton doesn't seem to be joking. In fact, the actor has a YouTube channel with several videos of him singing and playing guitar (none features him rapping, though). Watch him perform "If You Could Be Anywhere" in a 2009 clip below.
