Stud UK producers Chase and Status worked with fellow countryman Tinie Tempah to create a song called “Hitz” off their No More Idols album. The song has been getting a lot of airplay lately (except in the Midwest) and the song is slated to be released as a single July 17th. It’s a Tinie Tempah song with a dope beat with a bunch of scratches, and cymbals. At least I think that’s cymbals, I was never much of a band guy in high school. Nice flow by Tinie Tempah with his British accent and all.

Verdict is still out for me on Tinie Tempah. I had an interesting conversation with a UK guy over at 2DopeBoyzzzzz about him and it seems like he’s the anointed one to cross over to US mainstream. Apparently, he’s quite the performer and that is one trait all great artists have should have. I think his lyrics are pretty elementary and he rides his beat more than plays off it, but the guy can produce songs that the masses enjoy. Or at least dance to. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to him over the next few years and see if he can successfully crossover to the US.
