At the launch the musician revealed a new school anthem developed with Chobham Academy academy students in a live performance.

The new track was formulated in a masterclass hosted by the acclaimed rapper where students of the academy, in Cheering Lane, could share ideas and polish their natural talent.

Tinchy said: “I’m passionate about passing on my musical knowledge to young people and I was proud to be East Village’s first Artist in Residence.

“It’s an honour to give back a lasting cultural legacy to the area that I grew up in.”

Stuart Corbyn, chairman of Get Living London said: “We’re delighted Tinchy Stryder has joined our Artist in Residence programme which is chance to celebrate the fantastic cultural scene this part of the capital has to offer.”
