It has been reported he is working with Mike Skinner from The Streets to fulfill his hip hop hopes.

He's also been out buying tracksuits apparently, to "re-invent" himself as a rap artist.

A source told The Sun "He has actually said he wants to be Britain's answer to Eminem. He has told us he's started writing hip-hop songs."

Doherty recently revealed he has stopped injecting drugs, claiming he had been inspired by his new relationship and adding that he's getting treatment with a drug which suppresses withdrawl symptoms.
