The really good folks over at Soul Culture sent me this really dope extended footage of the amazing Ms. Melanie Fiona & UK emcee, Tinchy Stryder chopping it up in London recently! Check it out right below...
"In part two of our exclusive conversation piece with Melanie Fiona and Tinchy Stryder, the UK emcee explains how his recently confirmed new TakeOver Roc Nation deal came about and his plans to sign UK talent to the label [Stryder will continue to release his own music through Island], whilst Melanie clarifies the Roc's input in her career as co-management alongside SRC (label) and her production company, Title 9 Productions." - Soul Culture UK
"The pair also explore the importance of having people you can trust in the industry sticking behind you on your team, and Melanie specifically discusses SRC Records CEO Steve Rifkind's impact on her career. As Melanie works on her sophomore LP and Tinchy approaches his aptly titled 'Third Strike' album, they discuss solidifying your position in music after the initial debut buzz, the biggest lessons they've learned in the industry - with Melanie sharing some good advice she got from Brandy." - Soul Culture TVI could watch and listen to Ms. Fiona all day, every day and I found it really cool how she's asking Tinchy for advice on her sophomore album... As a bonus, I thought I'd add the prequel to the footage you saw above unto here as well just incase you haven't caught it. #Shouts to Soul Culture TV
