This is a single by British rapper Tinchy Stryder from his third album, Third Strike. The song features a heavyweight collection of fellow British rappers - Giggs, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Devlin, Chipmunk, and Example. (Anyone know what the collective noun for a gathering of UK MCs is? Maybe we could make one up - how about a "Britspit"?)
Stryder performed the song live at the MOBO Awards 2010.
Stryder told AOL Music
how the song came about: "My producer played me this beat and straight away I knew it would make a great freestyle track. So I got together everyone that I like right now: Devlin, Professor Green, Giggs... Everyone wrote their bits individually – Pro Green wrote his verse sat on a train somewhere – then we all got together for the video shoot. It was a cool vibe - no egos clashing. We didn't party or anything, we just got the recording done."
AOL Music asked Stryder whose contribution he liked the most. He replied: "Personally I liked Giggs' verse the most. There's something about it. Mind you - he has double the time on the track as anyone else so maybe that's why!"
The renown Texas songwriter has been at it for 40 years, with tales to tell about The Flatlanders and The Clash - that's Joe's Tex-Mex on "Should I Stay or Should I Go?"
