The rapper declared that not all hip-hop stars have to come from a broken home and write songs about it and he aims to represent the more fortunate side of society.
"I'm incredibly close to my mum and dad. Even to this day I call them mummy and daddy. I was well-brought-up, my parents are still together," Tempah told More magazine.
"When people listen to hip-hop, they think everybody's from a broken home; that it only appeals to people from broken homes and those on drugs.
"But the majority probably do live with their mum and dad. They probably do go to good schools, and I just want to represent that."
Tinie Tempah is scheduled to release his second studio album Demonstration later this year.
