Ghetts is increasingly recognised as one of the most vital, talented and enduring artists to emerge from the UK’s grime scene. Born Justin Clarke, the East Londoner combines razor sharp rhymes delivered with crystal clear diction, a healthy dose of humour, and creative, intelligent wordplay.
In 2005, Ghetts – known back then as Ghetto – released his debut mixtape, 2000 & Life. Since then he’s gone on to release 5 further mixtapes, 3 studio albums, various blazing freestyles, and make countless guest appearances. His last album, 2018’s Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament, continued his artistic evolution and displayed a more mature, considered style; the record was widely praised and led to a prestigious Ivor Novello award nomination.
Ghetts new album, Conflict Of Interest, is simply his most ambitious, fully realised project yet. The record – released in February 2021 – features Pa Salieu, Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Giggs, Dave, Skepta, Jaykae, Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32, Moonchild Sanelly and others, and has further solidified Ghetts’ status as one of the UK’s greatest rappers.
