OK, he’s reloaded. Fresh off his American debut, Tinie Tempah is back in the kitchen whipping up some new heat. He’s already prepping a new mixtape, Happy Birthday, due out soon and “Like It Or Love It” leads off the campaign with a bang. This one finds Tinie trading bars with fellow British MC Wretch 32 and Roc Nation star J. Cole for this one. Frankly, I haven’t heard Tinie this inspired since his mixtape days. Clearly, his major debut had to sacrifice some of his early grit to give him a fair shot at commercial success. At least, that’s one vox populi that sums up his disappointing debut. But that stabbing hunger never left his abdomen, it turns out. Me thinks we’ll hear more of this Tinie on Happy Birthday.
