Tinchy Stryder dreams of collaborating with Kanye West.
The hip-hop star is highly impressed with the US rapper's stage productions and would like to get involved.
"Right now, my ultimate collaboration is with Kanye West - I really like what he's doing with his production," he said.
He is also a fan of Snoop Dogg, saying: "I like him and his music. He's a cool character."
Tinchy - a mentor with Disney XD's Aim High campaign - revealed he looks up to Jay-Z, whom he has launched a record company for up-and-coming talent with.
"I've got people who I've looked up to when I was growing up, musically I'd have to say Jay-Z. He's a cool guy, he's laid-back and honest with who he is and he makes people feel welcome around him," he said.
The 24-year-old has been taking tips from Jay-Z.
"Away from the business, he's gone through so many stages with his music so he's a good person to learn from," he said. "There is a lot for me to learn from the way he came about and what he had done with Roc Nation, similar to what we're doing now. He is important people to be around as he has been and done it so can teach me loads."
