Ghetts Essentials

Ghetts Essentials

Grinding around the London grime scene since 2005, Ghetts has stayed relevant by releasing a steady stream of mixtapes and albums, which assume different forms on the back of his detailed rhymes and sharp storytelling. On “Artillery” he shows that even when he's menacing, he's building a narrative, his staccato rhymes conveying fear around imagery of weapons and street life. “Black Rose” is more introspective, sparse instrumentation laying down a pathway for Ghetts to reflect on his childhood. He's effective in turn-up mode, too, pushing back with rhyming jabs against the rapid-fire drums of “Preach,” for a mix that would shake up any party.
