Labrinth says that he thinks of Simon Cowell as more of an "investor" than a boss, and says that he is able to do whatever he wants.
The producer got his lucky break when Simon signed him to his Syco record label and propelled him to commercial success. Speaking of the music mogul, Lab told Metro newspaper: "It's worked in my favour. He's a big guy in the music business and a great businessman. I'm doing my own thing. I'm releasing music as I want to, producing it how I want to and getting the videos how I want them."
"They don't get too involved in what I do and they're very supportive. It's good to have people who are great at business being involved. I wouldn't call Simon my boss, he's more of an investor. Simon might tell some of his acts what to do, but he doesn't do that with me. The best advice he's given me is to be myself."
Lab and his frequent collaborator Tinie Tempah is hoping to score a number one with his second single 'Earthquake.'
