Tinchy Stryder has been in the Grime game for a long time now, since the days of Deja and Rinse, working alongside crew Ruff Sqwad. Over the past year he has been on his entrepreneurial flex, exercising his journalism degree, opening a t-shirt printing firm and getting signed deals with Island records all in one.
Although his previous efforts didn't go as far as expected, his new track Take Me Back featuring (your local Time & Envy Nightclubs favourite R&B singer) Taio Cruz, is currently at Number 4 in the UK single charts and Number 2 in the download charts. I can truly say I feel proud for the guy, when someone has tried for time to break into the mainstream you can only feel happy for them when they do. Hater's fall back.
It's not too late to help him reach the top spot!
