Hot on the heels of his Ivor Novello nomination, today East London rapper and Grime veteran Ghetts announces his biggest headline tour to date, including London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town on 21st December.

Black Rose ft. Kojey Radical, the lead single from 2018’s critically acclaimed Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament, has been nominated for an Ivor Novello for Best Contemporary Song. The winner of the award will be released at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on 23rd May. Watch the video for ‘Black Rose’ ft Kojey Radical here.

Ghetts’ journey began in the borough of Newham, making his first mark in the first wave of Grime, despite the genre being “already on its way” says Ghetts. From day one, his deep understanding of Hip Hop, literature and ability to articulate himself in daily conversation meant he was automatically a natural, and the scene has embraced him ever since. Respected for finding the most innovative ways of painting a picture of his personal experiences, whilst simultaneously relating to the masses, ‘Preach’ is no different, sitting comfortably as one of the many masterpieces found on ‘Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament’.
