    Check out Plies' Feature in USMagazine.com

    Fourth times' the charm! Florida rapper Plies is about a week away from dropping his fourth album, Goon Affiliated (out June 8) and he's already racked up quite an impressive list of collaborators. Not only is the MC featured on Usher's monster hit "Hey Daddy" and Young Jeezy's "Lose My Mind" but he's rapped with Ne-Yo, Akon, Jamie Foxx, Ludacris, Chris Brown and others already.

    About to go on tour and with his single "Becky" featured on The Hills, he caught up with UsMagazine.com and let me know who he really wants to get down with. Simon Cowell would definitely raise an eyebrow to this one! Read on...

    UsMagazine.com: Going way back, what initially sparked your interest in becoming a rapper and the music industry?

    Plies: Being from Fort Meyers, Fla., music was never really big on our radar. More street activity and athletics was the thing to do, but I kind of got dragged into the situation. I had a brother who was incarcerated at the time, and was just trying to do something positive when he came home and music was the solution. Music kind of happened by accident for me.

    Us: Are there artists you are inspired by and maybe want to work with in the future?

    Plies: I always bring this up to people and they think I'm just teasin'‚ but Susan Boyle is probably at the top of my list. A lot of people look at that as a far-fetched feature or collaboration. From a business standpoint, I watched what she was able to do and create through her own story and it always interested me.

    Us: Who are some other artists featured on your new album, Goon Affiliated?

    Plies: I got Trey Songz, Fabolous and Keri Hilson on this album. So, I had an opportunity to keep it right in the middle, I didn't want it to be overloaded with features but I wanted to work with people who had a respect for their craft as well. I feel like this fourth album is so well-rounded.
