Tinie Tempah Talks Stereotyping To More Magazine

Tinie Tempah wants people to not stereotype ‘urban’ artists, saying not all of them are from broken homes.

“I was well brought up, my parents are still together. When people listen to hip hop, they think everybody’s from a broken home; that it only appeals to people from broken homes and those on drugs. But the majority probably do live with their mum and dad. They probably do go to good schools, and I just want to represent that.”

On his official website biography he talks about growing up on the Aylesbury Estate in South East London…

“London is one of the only places in the world where you can live in a council block and see a beautiful semi-detached house across the street. Growing up around that was inspirational, it kept me motivated.”
