Artist

Justin Clarke (aka Ghetts) was born and grew up in East London: Plaistow in the borough of Newham to be precise.

This is a rapper who came through in the first wave of grime, and has consistently earned the undying respect of his peers and hardcore fans – but who has also exhibited strategic brilliance and hard graft throughout his career, relying consistently on wit and talent over the vagaries of fashion, bringing him to a point today where he is not only making some of the best music of his life, but personally is in a position of acceptance and acute self-knowledge. All of which is expressed in GGospel: a record that has lost none of the darkness or ferocious competitiveness of grassroots grime, but at the same time is able to be full of complexity, finesse and wisdom.
