In his latest interview with NME, Jay-Z had words of flattery for none other than Coldplay's frontman, Chris Martin.

"In years to come, Britain will look back at him as a modern day Shakespeare", Jay continues. "He added that "[Martin] is an incredible recording artist, an incredible songwriter, but where he really comes alive is performing live. "If you get the chance to see Coldplay live, do it - you ain't gonna regret it", Jay remarked of the celebrated English musician.

Both Jay and Chris have been added to the line-up for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Month as part of the United Kingdom station's 50th birthday.

Clara said: "This year's Live Lounge Month has me more excited for our listeners than ever".

When it comes to musical wordsmiths, some will cite Bob Dylan as the people's poet, while others may take a more modern approach and look towards some of hip-hop's greatest lyricists, such as Jay-Z, for example.

Jay returned the favour a few years later when he appeared on the Coldplay track "Lost+" from the band's 2008 Prospekt's' March EP.

Chris Martin does have an impressive list of hits.
