Story Highlight

With his new single ‘Unorthodox’ hitting the shops today Wretch 32 is definitely one to watch in 2011

Rapper Wretch 32 is fast earning a reputation as the best lyricist on the scene, and with good reason, too. It wasn’t long ago that the north Londoner was making a name for himself in the grimey world of pirate radio, but now he’s more likely to be found in the charts than a tower block with a transmitter on the roof.

His celebrity fans include Chipmunk, Adele, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J. And let’s not forget Diddy pulled him on stage at the beginning of the year to perform alongside him, and Mark Ronson invited him to work with him in the studio!

Most recently he’s just come back from touring with Example, who also features on his new single ‘Unorthodox’, which samples the legendary Stone Roses track ‘Fool’s Gold’. We think 2011 is gonna be a big year for Wretch.
