The South London native, born Chukwuemeka Okogwu, scored big in 2005 when Sony used his track "Listen to the Vibe" to launch PlayStation Portable's racing game, Wipeout Pure. He went on to get outstanding marks for his mixtape, Hood Economics Room 147: The 80-Minute Course, which included the underground hit "Wifey." His debut album Disc-Overy (2010) put him in pole position with No. 1 singles on the U.K. singles charts—"Pass Out" and "Written in the Stars." The disc has earned him two Brit Awards for Breakthrough Act and Best British Single for "Pass Out." Tempah's second LP, Demonstration, was released November 2013 and garnered even more awards.
