With all the talk of Tinie breaking America recently, he has said he will not be signing with Jay-Z's label, Roc Nation.
He also says that he thinks rap is becoming a part of mainstream England, with a few prominent artists coming to the foreground, like America have Kanye West, Jay-Z and Drake, even.
He wants to concentrate what he is doing at the moment, which is fine by me. As long he keeps producing the music he has been doing.
The British 'Frisky' rapper was said to be being courted by Jay for his New York based label - which counts Willow Smith, Alexis Jordan and Jay himself among its artists - but thinks, although he is promoting himself in the US, he would currently rather stick to his British roots and record label.
When asked if he'd sign to Roc Nation, Tinie told website M is for Music: "I just been here in America doing quite a few things actually, and none of them has been that.
"D'ya know what, at this moment in time I'm just concentrating on what I'm doing. What Jay-Z has achieved for himself is incredible and if I could achieve something like that I'd be happy. But not at this minute. Only time will tell."
