Dubbed "the metaphor man" by the grime glitterati, Jermaine Scott aka Wretch 32, lived up to the hype and became one of the biggest breakthrough artists of 2011
The don of UK hip hop’s first album, the gold-certified Black and White amassed over one million record sales and had three top five singles including the gritty "Traktor" and "Unorthodox ft. Example", as well as a No.1 with "Don't Go ft. Josh Kumra". He was crowned ‘MC of the year' by MTV for two years running and performed as one of the key artists in the 2012 London Olympics. Wretch has evolved his style into a seriously unique sound; chilled melodies, trademark bars and soaring choruses.
Wretch is preparing to release his second album for Ministry of Sound/Levels Recordings with the first two singles "Blackout ft. Shakka" and "Doing OK ft. Jacob Banks". Seeped in Wretch's signature flow and discerning rhymes, "Blackout" pays homage to soaring tribal vocal sounds, while "Doing OK" is a humbling retrospective of Wretch's journey to become a bona fide artist, musician and role model.
