Tinchy Stryder has still managed to stay relevant this year so it’s only fair that he is included on the Pappzd 12 Days of Chritsmas list.

Having had a lot of success in 2010, Tinchy has worked hard to remain in the charts in 2011 and stay on the scene. His Spaceship collaboration with Dappy proved to be a big hit, scoring the pair a MOBO award and a position in the top five of the charts. The 25-year-old east Londoner was also nominated for Best International Act: UK at the BET awards this year.

Pappzd Santa verdict: Good

The stryderman star has shown good behaviour this year with his ambition and dedication to his music and other business ventures, including his position as Chairman and A&R executive of Takeover Entertainment Ltd. Therefore, we wanted to get him a thoughtful gift that he would really appreciate: height increasing shoes.

This pair of trainers may not be the latest Nikes or Adidas but they have a secret height increasing section built in so that the wearer appears taller. And at 5’3″ short, they’re perfect for Tinchy.

By putting these on, the rapper can add just over two inches to his petite height. We heard Tom Cruise wears them so they can’t be that bad.
