Lars Ankerstjerne Christensen, better known as Ankerstjerne (born on 15 August 1984), is a Danish rapper and songwriter. From 2007 to 2010, the rapper was known as Jinks, but returned to using his birth name Lars Ankerstjerne with the release of his self-titled album Ankerstjerne.
Lars Ankerstjerne debuted in 2007 under the pseudonym Jinks signed on Nexus Music record label. He became known for the single "One Night" by Jinks featuring Billy Beautiful which was used for the soundtrack of the 2007 youth movie Rich Kids.
His charting solo success was "Yo-Yo Pt. 2", a joint 2009 single credited to Joey Moe, Jinks, Nik & Jay. It reached No. 11 in the Danish Singles Chart. His single "Pssst! (Det på mode at være grim)" did not chart. Other notable songs from this period included "[Dai] to the Beat" and "In the [Hæd]" (2009) and "Orn'li!" (2010)
Jinks was also known for a number of collaborations with other artists related to the Nexus label. These included in addition to Nik & Jay and Joey Moe, Aligator and ChriZ. In 2007, he was featured in Joey Moe's "If I Want To". Joey Moe's 2010 single "Det går ned i nat" featuring Jinks reached No. 28 in the Danish Singles Chart, Alligator's 2010 hit "Gi' det til dig" also featuring Jinks reached No. 33 and ChriZ's 2010 hit "Lighters Up" featuring both Joey Moe and Jinks reached No. 16.
Lars Ankerstjerne broke with Nexus and decided to join ArtPeople. In May 2011 the release of the single "Tag hvad du vil" (meaning Take what you want in Danish), a joint effort credited to Ankerstjerne and Burhan G became his best-selling single reaching No. 2 in June 2011 on the Danish Singles Chart. The single went platinum with 30,000 downloads.
The single was the precursor for Lars Ankerstjerne's self-titled debut album Ankerstjerne, released on 10 October 2011 with Artpeople. The album was produced in collaboration with Burhan G, who contributes three songs on the album. Other collaborations include Rasmus Seebach, Xander, Alberte and Sarah West.
