5 January 2012, 16:34

The 'Written In the Stars' rapper was always "super-confident" about beginning his music career from a very young age.

Tinie Tempah was destined for chart success from his early teen years, according to one of his childhood friends.

Cleo Humphrey, who raps under the stage name Mz Bratt, was part of a grim collective with the ‘Pass Out’ rapper when they were both 16 and says he was always fixated on making it in the music industry.

“Tinie was always super-confident and super-talented,” Cleo told the Daily Star this week.

“Even back then he told me, ‘If I don’t make it by the time I’m 21, I won’t want to do this any more,” she revealed. “He was and still is so inspiring.”

The 23 year-old rapper released his debut solo album ‘Disc-Overy’ in October 2010 which went on to spawn seven successful singles.

Tinie Tempah recently confirmed he has already decided on a title for his second album and has promised fans it will be released in 2012.
