London: Rapper Tinie Tempah fears Djs and star producers are destroying the chances of fledgling singers breaking into the big time.

The `Written in the Stars` hitmaker is concerned that studio beatmakers are now considered the "new rock stars" while talented singers are left on the sidelines.

"The charts are so producer-driven these days. Even though there`s a vocal on the song, it`s all about the beat and who made it. Producers are the new rock stars but they aren`t the artists. It`s killing the opportunity for any real solid artists to have well-rounded careers," Tempah said.
