|Nate Ruess (fun.) is working with a hip-hop artist, but it's not Kanye West.|
Ruess added he's working on a hip-hop project. He can't say who, but he says it's not his hero Kanye West. "I'm just not at liberty to say, so I don't even know why I said it," he said. "But [Kanye] kind of got me off of my ass as far as acknowledging there's great music happening today. I think the older that I was getting, the more jaded I was becoming. I don't want to be a nostalgic listener. There's too much good stuff out there, and I just think it's up to me to work a little harder to find it."
