UK chart topper Tinchy Stryder has taken the reigns of I Like Music to lead you towards his favourite tunes right now. High on his list is Kanye West, with his anticipated new album Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, plus he tells us why he LOVES the X Factor and plays us his new video for his single Take The World.
Artist: Kanye West Track: Devil In A New Dress Released: 22nd November 2010 Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
Hip hop has missed Kanye. He always raises the levels of the game and moves things forward. A true artist. This track uses a slowed down soul sample. That’s his signature production move, it’s very effective. Powerful.
Artist: Kanye West Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Released: 22nd November 2010 Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
I had to pick Yay’s album too. The short movie Runaway he made to go with the album was excellent. The way he has given away tracks that didn’t make the cut every Friday is brilliant move too. Anticipation is high. I am just looking forward to seeing what he’s come up with!
Artist: Tinchy Stryder Track: Take The World Released: 17th January 2010 2010 Label: Roc Nation
Cheeky, but I am really proud of this video. Bridget Reilly is a very talented singer from New York on Jay - Z's Roc Nation label. Working together in that situation is really beneficial with talent like this to work with. We shot this at Battersea Power station to get an epic look.
Tinchy Stryder on X Factor
It's one of my favourite TV shows, very entertaining. This year they have an amazing crop of contestants. Matt, Cher, One Direction and Rebecca can all be huge artists once the show is over, they're all really talented. My one problem is the fact they would never have an "urban" music artist perform live on the show. It's obviously one of the biggest music outlets in the country and I'm not gonna lie...I want to perform on there! Simon shout me, let's get Game Over on the show mate ;)
