Mark Wahlberg may be taking another walk on the Wildside of his rap career.
The Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch star has revealed has been working with current rap chart-topper DJ Khaled.
Walking the red carpet for Transformers: The Last Knight, Wahlberg told HipHopDX if Marky Mark was to be resurrected, he would love collaborations with everyone from Adele and Justin Bieber to Jay-Z, Drake and Diddy.
"Now I'm gonna get phone calls ... You could do it one more time!'" he said.
Wahlberg then let slip he had already had a couple of those calls with Khaled, whose Grateful album topped the US charts this week.
The rapper has heavyweight pulling power with Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Bieber, Calvin Harris, Chance The Rapper, Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys all guesting on Grateful.
"I've spoken to [Khaled] a couple times. We're working on some other things," he said.
Wahlberg was one of the original members of New Kids On The Block with his older brother Donnie but quit after only three months in the group.
He then launched his own music project Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch and hit the top of the charts in 1991 with the debut single Good Vibrations, co-produced by his NKOTB heart-throb brother.
They scored another hit with follow-up single Wildside which sampled the Lou Reed hit Walk On The Wild Side.
Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch had tunes and abs
His chiselled physique as displayed in his music videos won him as many hearts as his rap skills and would lead to him starring in the unforgettable Calvin Klein underwear ads.
Wahlberg's transition to box office leading man in Boogie Nights, Three Kings and Planet of The Apes put his music career into hiatus.
