The 'Spaceship' star calls the footballer a "cool guy" after he presents the new design.
Tinchy Stryder enlisted the help of Manchester City football star Mario Balotelli to launch a new charity t-shirt.
The 'You're Not Alone' rapper and the Italian striker joined forces in Manchester to present the collaboration.
The t-shirt reads "Why Always Me?" which is based on the Premier League star's slogan which he showed off during a derby match against rivals Manchester United earlier in the season.
Tinchy revealed that he was glad to help make the t-shirt with proceedings going to a charity of Mario's choosing.
Speaking to The Sun about the football star he said: "He's a real cool guy and he likes his music, too."
It's not the first time the rapper has released an ode to the sports star as last month he penned a track simply entitled 'Mario Balotelli'.
Meanwhile, Tinchy recently unveilevd his new music video 'Brightlights' which features Pixie Lott.
