V Exclusive: Tinie Tempah Talks Jay-Z Co-Sign And Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair (Remix)’

From the Capitol Records offices, rising UK sensation Tinie Tempah spoke to VIBE about receiving the ultimate co-sign and being asked to bless to the official remix to Willow Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair.’

On Jay-Z’s co-sign.

“‘For me that was flattering, I was really really happy to hear him to say that. Sometimes the thing that people don’t realize that a co-sign—a hand on one shoulder is what you need. That kinda gave me the confidence to believe that on my own and off my own accord I could do it out here.”
