Tinchy Stryder has told MTV News about his new single and his business deal with US superstar Jay-Z.
In My System is released this week and is an early taste of the rapper’s third album, due out later this year. Asked if the track was about a real girl the star revealed: “My system’s full up right now man, my system’s full!”
He continued: “The song is about where you get to that situation- out clubbing or raving with someone- and in the blink of an eye you’re into them and you’re like ‘how did this happen?’
“It’s personal experiences I’m talking about right there.”
Tinchy also told us about signing a business deal with Jay-Z, through his management company Takeover. He explained how the meeting came about:
“When Jay had a show in Manchester I went up there and met him and we were just chilling backstage, his wife was there, Drake was there, it was just a real relaxed vibe. How his music comes across that’s how he is in real life, man.”
Stryder explained that he’ll be working with Jigga's Roc Nation to scout for new talent. He said: “A lot of people thought I got signed as a Roc Nation artist, but that isn’t the case.
“It’s like a joint venture where Takeover and Roc Nation meet. It’s a label where we’ll find new artists to bring them through and give them a chance.”
The young rapper said Jay saw parallels between the two teams, explaining:
“It’s not just like a business thing, for that to work there has to be a friendship and there’s a lot of things to relate to there man. They look at us and think ‘you lot remind us of when we were young’. I grew up listening to Jay-Z you know so it all made sense.”
