Tinie Tempah: Demonstration

London rapper sets out to make the world understand his language

Soon the whole world is going to understand my language,” Tinie Tempah claims on the follow-up to 2011’s Disc-Overy. The London rapper sets out to prove his point with songs covering all bases, from transatlantic dance-rap collaboration with Atlanta’s 2 Chainz on “Trampoline” to the deliriously over the top club-banger “Mosh Pit”, featuring a razor-sharp guest rap from Tinie’s hero Dizzee Rascal.

It’s well-produced and fun, though an excess of ambition causes the album to subside into a chugging suite of stadium anthems at the end.
