The aspiring rapper will perform his single, "Lose Control," at the Teen Choice Awards

Kevin Federline says he is ready to take his music to a national audience – and he’s going to get the chance at the Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 20.

The aspiring rapper, who says the public will be “shocked” by his performance, will close the awards show with his single “Lose Control,” from his upcoming album Playing with Fire, USA Today reports.

“It’s been building up for a long time, and the process with the album took a long time, so I decided to just get out there and jump on stage,” says Federline.

As for his famous wife, Federline says Britney Spears plans to be his date to the show – as long as the pregnant pop star, who is expecting the couple s second child, feels well enough.

“This is my first big event, and I need her support and I want her support. If she’s feeling under the weather because of the baby, obviously she won t be able to be there,” he said.

The couple have been working together in the studio, including collaboration on one untitled duet. “It’s not really a love song. It gives my point of view of how my family is and how tight my family is,” Federline tells USA Today. “People shouldn’t believe what they re told about us.”

According to Federline, people also should not believe critics who savaged early samples of his music. “I want to prove myself as an artist, as a rapper and as a human being in society who goes through everything everybody else goes through,” he said.
