Stryder's recordings date back to 1998. He appeared in 2000 [12] on pirate radio along with Dizzee Rascal and Wiley, [13] and was part of grime collective and record production team Ruff Sqwad from 2001. His pseudonym Tinchy Stryder derives from the video game Strider and from the nickname given to him "Tinchy": [9] [14] his height at 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m). [15]

In 2002, the grime group Roll Deep was founded by Wiley, and included Stryder and Dizzee Rascal. They were making music that was a derivative of garage. For a while, there was not even a name for it. The name "grime" was the one that stuck.

He also performed on Roll Deep's 2004 mixtape, Creeper Vol. 2. [16]

2008–2010: Catch 22

Stryder began a partnership with English record producer and songwriter Fraser T Smith. [20] According to Smith in an interview with HitQuarters, "Kwasi had no shortage of beats and cool sounding production, but I think he wanted to try and break through into the mainstream, and I had some experience crossing underground over into mainstream having worked with artists like Craig David." [20]

The single "Stryderman", was released on 20 July 2008. It was the first single taken from Catch 22 . The second single, "Take Me Back", was released on 19 January 2009.
