Tinie Tempah Drops $35K on Sneakers, Announces Miami Show with Lupe Fiasco

British rapper Tinie Tempah either (A) shits money, or (B) loves Michael J. Fox.

The 22-year-old Londoner recently dropped a staggering $37,500 on a pair of Nike Mag sneakers at a Los Angeles charity auction benefiting the Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's foundation.

The limited-edition kicks are actually based on a design worn by Fox's Back to the Future character, Marty McFly, and Tempah copped the first of 1,500 pairs.

Question is, will he rock him on stage when he rolls through Miami on Sunday, September 25, with Lupe Fiasco?

Tinie Tempah and Lupe Fiasco recently announced a US tour that includes a bunch of college campuses, a few amphitheaters, and one casino.

Their 305 gig is actually part of FIU's Homecoming festivities, and takes place on the school's campus. No word yet as to whether or not the two rappers will show up in a tricked out DeLorean.

FIU Homecoming show featuring Lupe Fiasco and Tinie Tempah. Sunday, September 25. FIU Football Stadium, 11200 SW Eighth St., Miami. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets cost $25 to $30 via completeticketsolutions.com. Call 305-348-2138 or visit hc.fiu.edu.
