Vocals: Mary J Blige and Lil Wayne

I think Mary J Blige is one of a kind. Lil Wayne is a huge influence for me. He's always experimenting and isn't afraid to come out of his box and I respect that.

MCing: Me

I'd MC as well so I could be involved on stage. I reckon I could hold my own. I could have my DJ, Spyro, on the decks too. I know how good he is so there's no risk.

Guitar: Fraser T Smith

He's actually a producer. He worked on my album, 'Catch 22', as well as Pixie Lott, Craig David and Kano. I've never seen anyone play guitar as good as him.

Bass: Flea

Red Hot Chili Peppers' bass player is pretty cool and I'm trying to introduce the word 'Flee' to everybody... it's for when something is so fly, it's flee. Basically, he stole my word for his name.

Drums: Travis Barker

Travis plays with Blink 182. They're good! I watched some programme about the band and Travis' playing blew me away.

Tinchy Stryder joins VV Brown, N-Dubz, Frankmusik, Pixie Lott and more on I Got Soul, the single for "War Child", out on Monday. Check out
