Record of the week Interview, Wretch 32 talks about his Latest single, early starts and plans for 2016
James Heavy Feet Catches up with London Born Rapper Wretch 32 and discuss about the brand single called Alright with me, his early starts as a rap artist and plans for 2016.
Wretch brings a dazzling lyricism and poetic resonance to bear on UK rap, borne out of his experiences growing up among the grim high rises of Tottenham’s Tiverton Estate, along with Broadwater Farm the area’s most notorious urban sprawl. At Northumberland Park Community Secondary School, Wretch, born in March 1985, was, by his own estimation, “not very academic”. He describes himself variously as “the centre of attention, the class clown, and the teachers’ worst nightmare” – he went down “the foolish route”, in the words of My Life, a typically emotive track from his 2007 mixtape Teacher’s Training Day.
Inevitably, record companies got in touch. And now, after years of producing moving and powerful music, Wretch 32 has a deal that will earn him the respect of the wider world.
