Tinchy Stryder joins Jay Z's Roc Nation Label
Tinchy Stryder has signed a deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation Label.
The `Number 1' rapper, who is currently working on the follow-up album to his mega successful `Catch 22' LP, has signed a joint music venture with the hip-hop legend's label - and they have called it Takeover Roc Nation.
Tinchy, who got his name because of his 5ft 1in stature, told The Daily Star newspaper: "I'm still focused on the UK and not losing touch with my roots, but I want to take on the world as well."
The deal means the new company would now look after 23-year-old Tinchy's management, music, merchandise and live representation - with the possibility of signing new acts to the label as well.
The diminutive star has promised his new album, rumoured to feature more high-profile collaborations after his previous successes with N-Dubz and Amelle Berrabah, will be his best yet.
He wrote on his blog: "Can't wait for u all to hear it, it's a step up, who would have thought!
"It's a fresh start for me, a darker side and harsher sound. (sic)"Posted on 9 Jun 2010 10:00 to category : Music News
