Rapper assembles star studded line-up for new album 'Demonstration'
The rapper will release the follow up to 2010 debut ‘Disc-Overy’ later this year, and has already debuted the first track, ‘Trampoline’ featuring 2 Chainz. Speaking to NME in this week’s issue, available digitally and newsstands from today (July 24), the London born rapper revealed a string of big name guest stars, including his childhood hero Dizzee Rascal. “To finally be able to do a track with Dizzee, sounding the way I used to hear him, is fucking amazing,” Tempah said.
Opening up about his time in the studio with Pharrell, meanwhile, Tinie said: “The first day I went into his studio I was really run down. Pharrell had Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey on a massive projector, head down working. I walked in and was, like, ‘Fuck, this is Pharrell and I’m so tired and I look like shit.” Revealing that the track the pair worked on is “not what you would expect at all – it’s Pharrell’s take on dubstep, all dark and grimy and crazy.”
‘Trampoline’, which features rapper 2 Chainz, will be released on August 4. ‘Demonstration’ will follow later in the year.
