The latest offering from 28 year old rapper Wretch 32. Born Jermaine Scott, the Tottenham rapper first broke onto the scene in 2009 when he appeared on the BBC Introducing Stage at the Radio 1 Big Weekend. He was then nominated for the BBC sound of 2011 short list. His first single ‘Traktor‘ (which incidentally makes finding any information regarding NI’s DVS of the same name much harder than it should be) was the lead single from his second studio album ‘Black & White’.
‘Blackout’ is the first single to be released from Wretch’s forthcoming, as yet unnamed, third album. It features the vocals of Shakka, a vocalist Wretch found on Youtube and ask to work with. Knox Brown, a relatively unknown producer from Birmingham takes care of the production on this track, which I feel is pretty top notch.
Recently previewed on MistaJam’s 1Xtra show, I think this is going to be a big hit.
