In his early years, Tinny took up his first stage name Black Nature. He performed at various entertainment shows with that name. While he was in Osu Salem JSS, he joined forces with two of his friends, Salam and Buke, who called themselves "Black Agony" as a duo, and formed a whole new a group called "Nature and Agony". This group was managed by Tinny's father, Mr. Ricky Tetteh Quaynor. They performed at by then very popular teenage music shows such as Kiddafest and Fun-World. However, Agony did not like the idea of Tinny's father managing them thus, they left the group. Tinny then went solo to perform at ‘Ecstasy Promotions’ where he chalked the 1st position. When he got to Okuapeman Secondary School, his dad booked sessions for him with Hammer of The Last Two which landed him into being part of the Last 2 family as a 'foot soldier'.

It was quite difficult for Tinny to come out since most hiplife artistes at the time sang and rapped in twi and Tinny on the other hand, was a native Ga speaker and was therefore fixed on rapping in his ga language. His dream of making it to the top of the hiplife ladder came true when Hammer of The Last Two secured a deal for him with Abraham Ohene Djan (CEO of OM Studios). Abraham was carried away by his impressive lyrical flow after listening to his album, he agreed to produce him. With a beat maker like Hammer at the helm of things, Nii Addo decided to use the name Tinny as his stage name because it was his real name and blasted onto the Ghanaian music scene in 2003 with ‘Makola Kwakwe’. He quickly became a sensation, gracing events and dominating radio and TV in his category. Tinny’s fame increased when he featured on the remix of ‘Oye Ohene’. His went on with his career and featured artistes like Dogo, Obrafour, K.K. Fosu, Etuoaboba, Bandana, FBS and Okra. He goes on to bless Obrafour’s Execution Diary with his voice on a track called I Believe I Can Fly (Heko Ejorko). Tinny won several awards following his debut like the New Artiste of the year at both Ghana Music Awards 2004 and Ghana Music Awards UK 2004 and a Youth Excellence award for being the ‘Youth Musician of the year 2003’.
