Tinie Tempan can write a song anywhere - so long as he has his BlackBerry communications divice with him
Tinie Tempah can't write songs without his BlackBerry.
The 'Pass Out' hitmaker relies on his mobile communication device to make notes and record the lyrics which he is inspired to write while he's on tour.
He said: "I never really set a time aside for writing, I just write whenever wherever, I carry my Blackberry and if I think of something then I make a bit of a voice note and maybe by the end of the week, I'll have about 40 different voice notes, and I'll complete the lyrics or merge a few together, unless I'm working on a project I never just sit down and say I'm going to write now."
The 'Written In The Stars' rapper also credits a great deal of his success to the way the internet and modern technology has changed the way people buy music.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I'm a fan of the change to how we buy music now. I'm one of those people who embraces it, rather than a person that s***s it off every so often.
"If it wasn't for the evolution of digital music and the new ways of getting through to people that artists like myself and a lot of artists in the top 40 or top 100 wouldn't be here without it. Things have changed, but for the better.
"I think the internet is a fantastic tool and I'm a very avid twitter fan, I love doing video blogs and if it wasn't for modern technology I wouldn't even be here."
