Tinie Tempah has announced plans to release an autobiography.

The rapper has lined up 'Tinie Tempah: My Story So Far' which charts the rise of his success over the past 18 months since his first hit single 'Pass Out' shot to the top of the UK singles chart.

"I really wanted to tell my story of how I did it, the highs and the lows, the false starts, the people I've met along the way, the artists that have inspired me and the sheer determination that it's taken for me to accomplish some of the incredible achievements that I've been fortunate to experience over the last 18 months or so," he said.

"I feel like now is the right time to do that, as I go into my arena tour and as I begin work on my second album. I feel that now is a great time to tell my story and share this journey with my fans."

The book will be published by Ebury Press and is released on October 13. The rapper recently told NME that music saved his life in a video interview you can watch below.
