East London rapper Ghetts is Julie Adenuga’s UK Represent Artist this week on her Beats 1 show. Ghetts, who recently released his latest album ‘Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament’, talks to Julie about feeling overwhelmed by his album feedback, especially on the song ‘Black Rose’, wanting to tour the album, colourism, and how Grime isn’t dead.
“I don’t even react to that. They say it’s dead when there is no mainstream light on it or something but I look at Drum N Bass. People that are not into drum and bass. They dont know six to seven drum and bass shows going on a week, big shows across the country. I remember RIP Stormin but I just remember when he got into that culture he was doing more shows then us guys, Grime is a genre where it’s not based on surface listeners but the scenes still happening, there’s still great raves going on and all of these things.”
