The Star In The Hood hits Wembley

At the age of 24, Tinchy Stryder is already a decade deep in the game, having started out on pirate radio as a teenager. He perfected his craft with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and his Ruff Sqwad crew and made an early appearance on Radio 1Xtra in 2004.

Tunes such as Take Me Back, Number 1 and Never Leave You have solidified his status as one of the UK’s biggest artists and last year this was made official as he was named the best selling male solo artist of 2009. Not only has he had 2 number ones in the national charts and a Gold-certified album, Tinchy also has a clothing line, several mix tapes, 2 albums and has joined forces with hip hop giant Jay-Z, to launch a new project aimed at breaking new talent.

This is going to be one big set from the unstoppable Star in the Hood.
