Tinie Tempah cried while watching a documentary on his own life.

The 24-year-old rapper - who recently unveiled his new 'Discovering Destiny' documentary which recalls milestones in his life, including a 22-year-old Tinie preparing for his first UK arena tour - broke down while watching key moments of his journey unfold on screen.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''It was while I watched a documentary about myself. I know that sounds a bit weird but it showed everything I have done so far and I found it a bit overwhelming.''

Although the 'Children of the Sun' hitmaker has had a successful music career since he was catapulted to the spotlight in 2010 after the release of his first album 'Disc-Overy', he is trying to use his success as a platform to also become a better businessmen.

Tinie has seen his idol Jay Z build a business empire as well as write hit albums and wants to emulate his success.

Tinie previously said: ''He [Jay Z] has led by example through his art form.

''He's worked hard, been smart and made really good business decisions. So if you have aspirations as a young black guy to be an artist, a musician and an entrepreneur, and who knows, maybe one day work with tech companies and app companies and drinks brands and all of that, there is someone who has shown people like me that we can do that.
