Following in the footsteps of Bob Dylan, a la The Traveling Wilburys, Mick Jagger has created his own super group with Joss Stone, composer A.R. Rahman and reggae singer Damian Marley.

And with the new group, comes a new sound, as well.

In SuperHeavy, the star deviates from his famous role as the ludicrously-lipped front man of the Rolling Stones.

Jagger told the Associated Press that he has been trying his hand at rapping.

"I was just copying Damian. I do a little bit," Jagger says. "I went toasting, we call it, but it is the same thing [as rap]. Damian was doing this really good toasting, West Indian rapping, so I thought, "I could do that. It can't be that difficult." It actually was quite difficult. With a bit of practice, it is all right. It is a laugh."
