Hard as it is to take seriously a rapper whose name sounds like a Mr Men character, it barely matters, because Plumstead MC Patrick Okogwu is essentially a comedian.

Turn a deaf ear to the Cowell-connected producer Labrinth's uninspired Brit-hop beats and instead concentrate on the surely intentional comedy of Tinie's "I've got so many clothes I keep some of them in my aunt's house" and "I've been to Southampton but I've never been to Scunthorpe" (both from number-one single "Pass Out").
