“I just want people to know that I’m a young guy trying to live out his dream and do everything possible to make that dream happen. I’m an average, regular guy from South London, but at the same time I want it all – and I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure that happens.”

“I really want people to get this album, I want them to listen to it as a whole and see that not all the tracks are chart-driven. I really wanted to give people some ‘Tinie Time’ for an hour.”

“I want people to see this is not a joke to me; now I’m here and I’ve been given the opportunity, I’m not messing around. I’m looking to take my tour, the videos, the music, everything, completely beyond what you can fathom. It’s never just another day in the life of Tinie; I’ve got a lot to do and you can bet on the fact that I’ll do it.”
