It's also not the first time Aitch has paid homage to his hometown of Manchester by shining a light on their legendary musicians.
Last year, the rapper launched his bid to get Liam Gallagher to appear on his debut album.
Taking to Twitter, the 22-year-old artist - whose real name is Harrison James Armstrong wrote: "I will pay £7 Million for you to be on my album @liamgallagher".

Not fazed by the radio silence, he even doubled down in his attempts when he attended the 2022 NME Awards, revealing: "I want to catch up with Ed [Sheeran], I’ve not seen him for a while, but when it comes to meeting someone it’s Liam definitely”.
Quizzed about how he'd go about asking the Rock N' Roll Star for a feature, he replied: "I’ll just say, ‘Why are you not on my album yet?’ See how it goes from there."
Asked if he'd ever consider a collaboration with the rapper for the pricey sum, Gallagher told NME: "Is that all? He ain’t got seven million f****** quid – he ain’t got f****** seven f****** quid, never mind f****** seven million.
"And it quickly went down to his watch and his trainers the other day. Listen, I don’t do that – that’s not for me, man. He seems like a nice lad, but I don’t wanna be on anyone’s album."
“He’s a United fan, so it ain’t f****** happening," he added.
“When I read that, I was like, ‘No mate’. He don’t need me on his album anyway, but I do appreciate the fact that he thinks I’m cool, I guess. Even if he did have seven million pounds, I wouldn’t do it because I can’t be f****** bought.”
