The 23-year-old UK export is said to have made a deal with Roc Nation to form his own imprint, “Takeover/Roc Nation”. Takeover Entertainment released Stryder’s 2007 debut album, Star in the Hood.

Tinchy Stryder told the UK’s Daily Star. “I’m still focused on the UK and not losing touch with my roots, but I want to take on the world as well.”
Tinchy is working on material for his upcoming third album, and gearing up for a grand performance at the Glastonbury Festival on June 27th.
