Tinchy Stryder's jungle music

Tinchy Stryder has ambitious plans to create an ''alien jungle'' stage set that is like nothing any other artist has ever performed on

Tinchy Stryder would like to create an "alien jungle" on stage.

If he had an unlimited budget the British grime star would produce a "new world" as his set for his live shows.

The 'Number 1' rapper said: "I'd probably want to do something that can't even be done yet. I'd create a whole new world on stage - an alien jungle."

Tinchy, 22, also revealed he struggled to complete his degree in Moving Image and Animation - which he was studying at the University of East London - last year because he was recording his second album 'Catch 22' at the same time.

He explained to FHM magazine: "Last year I had a number one single and I've been on tour, but I still had to do my 6,000 word essay on visual theory, and produce a documentary.

"For the documentary I combined the two, and made a film about our tour manager. So while I was on tour I was filming what he was up to, setting up the stage, getting us ready and all that stuff.

"There were a lot of points where I thought I wasn't going to finish, but all you can do is try, and somehow I managed to get all the work finished."
