Professor Green working on new songs during lockdown

Professor Green has been working on new material during lockdown.

The 36-year-old rapper - who released his most recent full length album 'Growing Up In Public' - dropped new EP 'M.O.T.H' in September last year, and he's been using the last few months "wisely" by spending time in his home studio.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've been in the studio loads. It's nice, because I've got a studio in my back garden so I don't have to travel too far for work.

"I can work as and when. It's really nice at the moment, because I've realised I never needed to leave the house for all the meetings about the meetings we're gonna have.

"It's really nice to not have to do that. I've got more time at home. It's making me feel more at home here, it's making it more homely."

The star - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - explained how even getting more interested in cooking has benefited his creativity when it comes to dealing with writer's block.

He added: "I'm not living the life of takeaways, I can just leave the studio for an hour and cook some food - which is actually a really nice gap between banging my head against a brick wall because I can't think of the next line.
