Tinchy Stryder “Saw It All On YouTube First”

As far as recommendations go, chart-topping Grime artist Tinchy Stryder saying that “YouTube is one of those sites that I always go on”, ranks up there with the best of them. When he then goes on to say that “if you want to find the latest thing, YouTube is the home”, we felt duty-bound to hand him the editorial reins for a day. Flattery will get you everywhere.



The result is a selection that runs from the full-length version of “Thriller” – “A groundbreaking video” -- to the dark vision of Bone, Thugs N Harmony’s “Crossroads” – “When I was younger, this video used to scare me a bit” – taking in Dipset’s guided tour of their neighbourhood, “Santana’s Town”, in the process.








Some great tunes and memorable videos, but YouTube can’t allow Tinchy to leave the building without sharing some of his work – “Never Leave You”, his second chart topper of 2009 to date – via the homepage. Over 700,000 clicks, a No. 1 single and the chance to work alongside Amelle Berrabah of The Sugarbabes -- what's not to like? Then again, who knows what future releases from “Catch 22” will bring?



Music aside, it is also possible to view some of the latest interviews with the Star In The Hood, such as this slightly kinky affair from Pocket TV and an intriguing tete-a-tete with Tim Westwood, the nearest thing that UK Hip-Hop has to an elder statesman (who, incidentally, runs a mean channel over at TimWestwoodTV).




Anyway, enough talk. Here’s hoping that you enjoy Tinchy Stryder’s selections, and we would like to extend our thanks to him for taking the time to share his picks with us.



Have fun,

They shouldn't have him choose his own music videos he can't sing, all he does is talk to music.

what's the point, when Youtube removes those videos in the end.
So there's no point in visiting Youtube:/
