About “Mac And Devin Go To High School”
The film, set in a Los Angeles high school, sees Valedictorian hopeful Devin Overstreet (Wiz Khalifa) struggling to pen his graduation speech when it becomes clear that all his academic overachievements have left him with little to no real-life experiences. He finds an unlikely inspiration in the least-achieving student on campus, Mac Johnson (Snoop Dogg.) Mac, a 15-year senior and consummate ladies man, is smitten by the school’s new substitute chemistry teacher. He soon realizes that the only way he’ll truly have a chance with her is if he finally graduates high school. In 3 weeks time, Mac must cram four years of high school academics, while Devin must cram four years of teenage experience.

Today, London-born rapper Tinie Tempah, will premier the video for his second U.S. single “Til I’m Gone” featuring Wiz Khalifa and produced by Stargate. The video will premiere across the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, VEVO, including VEVO.com, VEVO mobile apps for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android and VEVO on YouTube. Fans can click here for the first look at the video: http://www.vevo.com/watch/tinie-tempah/till-im-gone/GB7TP1100204

Long-time supporters, MTV have added the video across all channels this week including MTV2, MTVU, MTV Hits and MTV Jams. Amy Doyle, Executive Vice President – Music & Talent Programming at MTV Networks, commented “Tinie Tempah instantly connected with the MTV audience and is transcending boundaries; we are excited to continue to embrace his art and witness his meteoric rise.”

“Til I’m Gone” follows Tinie’s platinum-plus debut single “Written In The Stars,” an infectious, message-driven single which Entertainment Weekly nailed on the head when they predicted it to be one of the “next big hits of 2011.” Rolling Stone recently sent out the latest hit alert when they put “Til I’m Gone” on their Hot List tipping off readers to “Prepare for the Brit-hop invasion! Tinie’s new jam, featuring medicinally enhanced rhymer, Wiz, sounds like the future – all supersleek synths, skittering drums and contrasting accents. Ace.”

Both of these undeniable hits are featured on Tinie Tempah’s recently released U.S. album Disc-Overy. The charismatic 22-year-old artist is already a phenomenon in the U.K. where Disc-Overy debuted at number one and produced four Top Five singles, including two number ones, and is the U.K.’s top-selling debut album by a British artist in 2010.

In addition to his pair of BRIT Awards, Tinie has officially gone global with a recent win this past weekend at the BET Awards for BEST INTERNATIONAL UK ARTIST and a stand-out performance at the U.K.’s premiere music festival, Glastonbury with the NME giving him a 9 out 10 performance saying “he’s kicked it all off with the biggest show of his life.”

Tinie Tempah made his U.S. festival debut with a rapturously received performance at Coachella earlier this year and will continue to disturb the U.S. festival scene with a performance at this year’s Lollapalooza on August 5th on the Grove Stage at 6pm followed by a 12:30am performance at the official C3 after-show party at Subterranean (2011 W. North Avenue).

Tinie is also wrapping up his tenure as a selected artist for VEVO’s emerging artist program, LIFT. As a LIFT artist, Tinie received a major promotional push across the VEVO platform including an exclusive premiere of the video for “Written in the Stars.” During the eight week program, VEVO created 28 pieces of original content giving fans exclusive access to Tinie. As a result, Tinie’s total online video views increased 97%. Additionally, Tinie’s social network grew with “Written in the Stars” delivering 750,000 Facebook shares and an additional 400,000 fans “liking” him on Facebook with 70,000 subscribing to his YouTube channel.

Fans can continue to join Tinie in disturbing the USA and wider by logging onto www.disturbingusa.com and submitting messages.

These two new accolades join the already 3X platinum single, “Black And Yellow,” which was released last September and catapulted up the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard’s “Hot 100 Singles” chart.
