Tinchy Stryder - Tinchy Stryder inspired by Kendrick Lamar

Tinchy Stryder's new music is inspired by Kendrick Lamar.

The British rapper has been hard at work on his new album and has been putting together a comprehensive collection of songs, which he says have been loosely influenced by the US hip-hop icon.

Speaking at the F&F Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion show at London's Somerset House, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''It's going really good, I would say the album is finished but it's never finished! A couple of days ago I went to the studio to record a new track. This time I'm being more picky. Even if a song is good, if it doesn't fit with the rest, it's out.

''Someone who has really inspired me is Kendrick Lamar. Not many albums I can listen to start to finish, his are like a journey. This album might be my fourth, but it feels like people are just are getting to know me. I'm starting to open to up.''

The 'Number 1' hitmaker also revealed he would love to work with N-Dubz star Dappy for a third time, but remained coy as to whether fans could expect another collaboration on his new record.

Tinchy said: ''I love N-Dubz, they're cool. I did 'Spaceship' with Dappy after 'Number 1'.You never know, we might end up in the studio and make something. Me and Dappy have got that connection, so who knows...''

The 27-year-old star isn't a fan of the overly-sexualised portrayal of women in hip-hop and says he won't be going all 'Blurred Lines' in his next music video.

He mused: ''Hip-hop videos have always had that culture to it, but here in the UK you don't really see that a lot. I think it depends how you put yourself across. If you allow yourself to be portrayed in a certain way then you can only blame yourself ... I feel like when there a woman that respects herself, I respect them.''

Tinchy was joined by stars including Billie and Sam Faiers, Amy Willerton and Sophie Ellis-Bextor at the F&F fashion show last night (03.04.14) to watch their new mens and womenswear collections go down the runway.
