Jay-Z like family to Tinchy Stryder
Tinchy Stryder has claimed Jay-Z and wife Beyonce are like family to him.
Since the British rapper formed Takeover Roc Nation management company with the Blueprint star, where they aim to find and sign new talent from the UK and the US, Tinchy has got closer to the star-studded couple.
"Since I inked a management deal with Jay-Z, he and Beyonce have become like family - they're two of the most exciting artists I've ever come across," he told the Daily Star.
"On stage, Beyonce is mind-blowing but off stage she is even better looking. She's so down to earth."
Despite having Jay-Z and Beyonce behind him, Tinchy claimed he is not bothered about cracking the States.
"They're spreading the word about me but launching myself in the States isn't on my priority list right now," he said.
"Timing is everything. I don't want to rush - the UK still needs to be conquered after all. At the moment, just giving my British fans cool, new music is what it's all about."
