Watch on Apple Music:

Acclaimed West Lon­don rap­per AJ Tracey today joins Dotty for “The Agenda Meets”, an Apple Music video series explor­ing the back­grounds, per­son­al­it­ies and motiv­a­tions of standout artists in Black Brit­ish music.

Fresh from releas­ing his acclaimed second album ‘Flu Game’, this exclus­ive inter­view with Dotty sees the Lad­broke Grove rap­per get deep on cre­at­ive free­dom, fam­ily and the import­ance of men­tal health.

Since break­ing onto the scene with his 2017 EP ‘Secure The Bag!’, AJ Tracey has ris­en to achieve wide­spread crit­ic­al and com­mer­cial suc­cess, all the while res­ol­utely main­tain­ing his artist­ic and cre­at­ive inde­pend­ence. 2021 has already been a standout year for Tracey, see­ing the release of his sopho­more album ‘Flu Game’, as well as three nom­in­a­tions at The BRIT Awards, includ­ing two for Brit­ish Single Of The Year.

AJ says of his jour­ney: “I’m just grate­ful for everything. On a per­son­al level, it keeps me motiv­ated that I’ve changed so many people’s lives, and I can still change more. I’m still young, so I need to get it while I can.”

Dotty says: “The idea of inde­pend­ence in the music industry is an elu­sive one, but AJ Tracey some­how man­ages to embody its essence in everything he does.  His star­dom is entirely of his own mak­ing and it’s proof that with a great team all things are pos­sible.”

Apple Music’s “The Agenda Radio with Dotty”, “The Agenda Live” and “The Agenda Meets” are part­ner series to Apple Music’s flag­ship playl­ist “The Agenda”, ded­ic­ated to rep­res­ent­ing the authen­t­ic voices of the UK and bey­ond, span­ning hip-hop, grime, R&B, Afrobeats and everything in between.
