Wretch 32: Tinie Tempah paved the way for me

Summertime Ball star Wretch 32 says Tinie Tempah helped set up his career.

The 'Traktor' rapper, who's had two top 5 hits on the Big Top 40 this year, says he has Tinie to thank for it.

"Tinie paved the way for me," Wretch 32 confessed.

"To be taken seriously we had to be flawless and to sharpen our craft for years and years, so it's great to be part of that."

Wretch 32, real name Jermaine Scott, is hoping to follow in Tinie's footsteps in America too after his single 'Written In The Stars' found US chart success earlier this year.

"We're making it better for the next generation to come through, and the Americans are embracing us too," he said.

Wretch 32 will perform at the Summertime Ball at Wembley Arena on Sunday 12th June.
