Tinie Tempah's "Disc-Overy" To Release On May 17, Boi-1da Production

With a background in Hip Hop, Tinnie Tempah may join Slick Rick, Monie Love and MF DOOM as successful British emcees.

London, England's Tinie Tempah will release his debut album, Disc-Overy this month, on May 17. The EMI Records emcee, who is presently enjoying the success of hit song "Written In The Stars" will unveil his long-awaited States-side debut with three new tracks, boasting production from Eminem/Drake producer Boi-1da, as well as Wiz Khalifa-hit producers Stargate.

EMI also confirmed that Tempah will be appearing on Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The View this month in promotional support of Disc-Overy.

    "Disc-Overy" is a phenomenal album. I've had it on repeat since it hit iTunes at midnight. Tinie is a sensational artist and I can not wait to see more from him in the future!

    Make no mistake, Disc-Overy is essentially a hip-hop record. What makes it stand out miles ahead of the completion however is the fusion of genres. Pop, Rock, Electronic, hints of Reggae and London’s very own Grime dominate Disc-Overy. Tinie Tempah has somehow managed to fully embrace the diversity of his very own city on his debut album. Funny, cheeky and honestly good are the best words to describe his rhymes. There are a couple of collaborations including Ellie Goulding (Wonderman) . Wiz Khalifah (Till I’m Gone) and Ester Dean (Love Suicide). Stargate, Boi1da, Swedish House Mafia and Labrinth are most noteworthy among the producers enlisted. The majority the music here is different from what’s currently on US radio and so I embrace this record as a breath of fresh air. Disc-Overy is already among my top releases of 2011 and not only that, the album cover is also among my faves.

    1) tinie tempah isnt even real UK hip hop 2) tinie tempah cant come close to some UK rappers 3) if he had started out in the US like slick rick did then he couldve been succesful because he wouldnt be trying to sell UK shit in america

      If you truly knew your history, you would know that Tinie Tempah began making grime, then bitch boy music, and now currently makes commercial garbage. You are fake, so dont talk shit about a music scene you know nothing about. Keep lying to yourself.

      who the fuck are you to decide what is and what isnt UK hip hop, ive been apart of HIP HOP since 1990 in the UK n Tinie is HIP HOP

      Agreed. Im completely devestated that the author of this article would put his name there with the likes of Monie Love and MF Doom, the latter of whom did not even live there long enough to be even considered uk but still has more skill than ten tinie tempahs put together. What cause he rapping over Boi-1da beats hes got talent? GTFO.

      ^^I think something dot lost in translation. On these shores, "Rinse" merely means to spin a record, I wasn't dissin' eLZ, I'm feelin' dude just like are. Gonna cop that Elmatic tape next week.

      fuck you talkin about she rinses rappers like Elzhi, Elzhi would slaughter every rapper you jus named if they where on the same beat, point blank Elzhi Deep>>> every song all of them have made not one of them is even close to fuckin wit Elzhi you mus be sniffin glue son

    • Doubl Negative

      I concur homie, I'd just like to add to this list; Ramson Badbonez, Sonny Jim, Kashmere, Joker Starr, Jehst, Lewis Parker, Micall Parknsun and Verb T. All mentioned emcees are more desrevin' to be compared to Doom and the Ruler than the terrible Tempah. If you ever get a chance to hear Sarah Love's show, check it out, 'cause she rinses these type of rappers, along with their US counterparts like Homeboy Sandman, eLZhi and John Robinson.

  • gok

    Typical retarded comment by a Gucci fan. As for Tinie, not the UK's best but good luck to him. Americans rarely accept UK MCs so mabe this could open a door.

  • SuperGucciRap

    This guy is a clown. Fuck this nigga. Written in the Stars is some faggot nerd shit that Lupe Fiasco would rap about. I hate all these new rappers who suck especially nerds like Lupe, cornballs like B.o.B, stoner posers like Wiz, jews like Drake or homos like Kid Cudi. Fuck these skinny jean wack ass rappers. Listen to Hopsin, Vinnie Paz, Canibus, Odd Future, OJ Da Juiceman, Justin Bieber and GUCCI! It's Gucci Time!
