He’s got Brits, he can rap, he can dance, he wears nice gear and he answered some of our questions. Oh and he smelt bloody lovely too.
We went along to Summer Sonic last week to check out the talent and sneak a cheeky beer backstage, whilst sipping we spotted UK man of the moment Tinie Tempah just finishing up a massage before he headed out to rock Midnight Sonic. We pounced and in our most respectable tone asked if he would spare a few minutes just to answer a couple of our quickfire questions. Needless to say he doesn’t really need an introduction with his debut album Disc-Overy, dropping fresh in at number one back in October 2010. Since then he’s gone on to pick up MOBO’s, Brit’s and an Ivor Novello for ‘Pass Out’.
Wow I just found out he is only 22! Here’s our short but sweet interview with Mr. Tempah…
