Actor/comedian Jonah Hill is a bigger fan of hip-hop than one might think.

The Get Him to the Greek actor recently told MTV News that before he got into acting he made beats. "I was a beatsmith," he said. Not only that, but Jonah revealed he is a big fan of Gang Starr, Nas and Jay-Z and that he loves up-and-comer Tyler, the Creator, who he recently tweeted about collaborating with.

“When are we collaborating on the greatest project ever?” he asked. "Let me direct a video for you and then we'll make it a full movie!"

"I love Tyler. He's awesome," Hill said about his desire to join forces with the Odd Future member.

Hill also said that he has a relationship with T.I., who he and Neighborhood Watch co-star Ben Stiller recently flew to Atlanta to see.

"Stiller and I went to go visit T.I. in his music studio in Atlanta," Hill said. "We thought it was going to be this big party. It was just a bunch of dudes listening to music."

Neighborhood Watch is slated to hit theaters next year.—Ralph Bristout
