English MC Tinie Tempah (Patrick Chukwuem Okogwu, Jr.) hails from South London. He was in his teens when he issued his first single, â€œWifey,â€� which packed sweetened swagger and became a hit in the underground. Tinie subsequently established the Disturbing London (aka DL) label and released 2007â€™s Hood Economics: Room 147: The 80 Minute Course, a mixtape featuring drop-ins from Chipmunk and DVA. The Parlophone label took note and signed the rapper, whose 2010 singles â€œPass Outâ€� and â€œFriskyâ€� topped various singles charts in the U.K. The tracks led to The Disc-Overy, Tinieâ€™s proper debut album, issued later in the year. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
