Tinie Tempah is hoping to have his second album out by October.

The 'Written in the Stars' hitmaker is already working on the follow up to his debut 'Dis-covery' - released October 2010 - and while he is experimenting with new sounds, doesn't want to stray too far from his previously successful formula.

He explained to website Gigwise: "I've started it already so I'm hoping to get it out by October or November time. I always like to work with different people on each project I do, just so you get a different sound and angle.

"I will be working with some of the same people I did for the first album, you know what they say, 'If it aint broke then don't try and fix it'."

While the 22-year-old rapper - real name Patrick Okogwu - has been heavily influenced by stars in the hip hop genre, such as Eminem and Dizzee Rascal, there is a broad range of artists he listens to.

He said: "I first wanted to get into music when I was about twelve but when I was fourteen I started doing my own recordings.

"I had loads of influences when I was growing up so that always helped. So Solid Crew for me was a major influence, Dizzee Rascal, Eminem with the 'The Marshall Mathers LP', 'The Slim Shady LP' and DMX a bit earlier on my teenage years.

"Aside from that I listen to everything. My mum was always into country music; Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers."
