Rapper Obie Trice draws inspiration from wholesome British chef AINSLEY HARRIOT - but only in the kitchen department.

The RAP NAME singer - who recently signed to Eminem's record label SHADY RECORDS - says he can't cook anything without burning it so turned to Harriot's cookery show for advice.

Obie says, "I tried to learn from that n***er. I used to sit around the crib and he'd come on TV, he had a little recipe show.

"It just amazes me when a man can cook, because I can't cook worth s***, I always burn some s*** up."
