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.
