The 'Disc-Overy' rapper says he is working hard to get fit so he feels comfortable taking his shirt off on stage.

Tinie Tempah has vowed to tone up and get fit ready for this summer's music festival circuit.

The 'Earthquake' rapper says he didn't feel comfortable stripping off last year but has been making a big effort to get in shape.

"There were occaisions during the festivals last year when I wanted to take off my shirt, but the time wasn't right," Tinie revealed to Q magazine.

"I've been going to the gym, learning to box," he explained. "By summer I want to be in tip-top shape."

The 'Written In The Stars' rapper released his 'Happy Birthday' mix tape in December 2011 and recently confirmed he has decided on a name for his second studio album, expected to be released sometime later this year.
