About Wretch 32

Wretch 32 fused the worlds of grime and hip-hop to become one of the more accomplished British MCs of the 21st century. • His Jamaican mother gave him the nickname Wretch, meaning skinny. He added 32 because it’s his lucky number. • The Tottenham native’s 2011 major label debut album, Black and White, spawned three Top 5 UK singles: “Traktor,” the Stone Roses–sampling “Unorthodox,” and the No. 1 smash “Don’t Go.” • His rise in popularity landed him an Adidas campaign for the 2012 Olympics in London. • Wretch 32 won Best International Act at the 2012 BET Awards. • In 2019, he returned with his fifth studio album, Upon Reflection, featuring collaborations with Burna Boy and Giggs. He also released Rapthology: Lessons in Life and Lyrics, which functions as a memoir and a guide book.
