Upcoming rapper Tinchy Stryder is reportedly the newest artist signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label.

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.

Under terms of the new deal, Roc Nation will handle Tinchy Stryder’s career, including merchandising, music, management, and live shows. Other artists on Roc Nation include Jay-Z, J. Cole, Rita Ora, Hugo, and Bridget Kelly.

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.

    WHAT DOES THIS BS HAVE TO DO WITH STREET GANGS, JAYZ IS A PROVEN LAME JUST LIKE ALL TINTOS

      What does this have to do with street gangs, la niggaz and gang banging influence every fabric of hip hop. If it wasnt for NWA, they would still be rapping like Grandmaster Flash and shit. Street Gangs influence rap, cars, clothing, politics, man all type of shit.

    Now I gotta tell ya, Jay-z has one of the worst singing voices all of time BUT he knows how to play it to his advantage in other areas. You gotta give him credit for his acomplishments that he has EARNED. But still, ni66a, that voice……

    Jay-Z running around signing people because he lost 50 million number one, he had to sell a share in the Nets to the Russian Oligarch. And three because he is tyring to stay relevant.
