Tinie Tempah - Tinie Tempah fulfilled dream working with Dizzee

Tinie Tempah claims working with Dizzee Rascal was ''amazing''.

The 24-year-old rapper - whose real name is Patrick Okogwu - admits his childhood inspiration was the 'Bonkers' hitmaker and he never dreamed in a million years that he'd the chance to work alongside him on his upcoming second album 'Demonstrations'.

He said: ''To finally be able to do a track with Dizzee, sounding the way I used to hear him, is amazing.''

The 'Pass Out' hitmaker also jetted over to Miami to work with his hero Pharrell Williams but admits he was very nervous meeting him for the first time because he wasn't well.

Speaking to NME, he explained: ''The first day I went into his studio, I was really run down. Pharrell has Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' on a massive projector, head down working, and I walked in and was like, 'F**k, this is Pharrell, and I'm so tired and I look like s**t.' I said to myself, 'Stop, stop, stop, stop!' And then I was like, 'Nice to meet you, man, I'm a real big fan.' ''
