Everything Stormzy does has to be big — such was the case with his recent appearance in BBC’s Live Lounge, which saw the South Londoner joined by Ghetts, J Hus, MNEK and Wretch 32. You can check out the group’s performance of ‘Blinded by You Grace’, ’21 Gun Salute’, ‘Bad Boys’ and ‘Godspeed’ above (you can get even more over at BBC)…if you haven’t already, you can check out Stormzy’s chart-topping albumGang Signs And Prayerhere.
Levi’s Music Project continues to make strides in London; this time, they head north to Tottenham for mini-documentary (courtesy of Noisey). Within the clip, we get to see the likes of Skepta (and his sister, Julie Adenuga), Wretch 32, Manoj Ambasna, Stafford Scott and Avelino speaking on where they coming from, and how the youth clubs, estates and more helped to make their part of North London home.
Check out Once Upon A Time In North London in North London above.

With the release of his critically-acclaimed new album Growing Over Life, Wretch 32 is now ready to get back to the stage (not that he ever really left it). The Tottenham emcee has announced two headliners for November — one in London with a second in Manchester the next day.
Currently, Wretch 32’s new album Growing Over Life continues to make waves within the culture…in lieu of, the North London emcee stopped by Not For The Radio for an extensive interview. During the sit-down, Wretch broke down the album, compared his rawer releases/freestyles against his radio-friendly cuts, revealed his latest venture into the spirits industry and much more. Check it out above.
Wretch 32’s long-awaited album, Growing Over Life, has finally arrived, which features the likes of Kranium, Emeli Sandé and Laura Mvula and sees the veteran emcee at both his most observant and introspective, speaking on his own life as well as the negative (and positive) issues that are happening around him, around all of us. Stream below, via Apple Music.
On 8th October, BBC Radio 1Xtra Live will be making landfall at Liverpool’s Echo Arena, and the line-up is pretty dope: Stormzy is the headliner, with additional appearances from Damian Marley, Desiigner, Giggs, Lady Leshurr, Sean Paul and Wretch 32.
Above sees Wretch 32 making his third appearance to Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth series in lieu of his forthcoming album Growing Over Life — and he didn’t disappoint, spitting flames over Common and Kanye West’s ‘Go’ instrumental.
This is dope: Wretch 32 was a recent guest for BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions, where he performed a new track from his forthcoming album, Growing Over Life. Titled ‘Open Conversation’, the performance sees the Tottenham emcee at his most personal and introspective…a pattern we expect to hear more of on the new album.
Check it out above; you can also see Wretch joining Ray BLK for her single ‘My Hood’.
We’ll keep the description short: Mistajam got Ghetts, Kano, Giggs, Mercston, Pepstar, So Large, Chip and Wretch 32 to spit bars for his latest #SixtyMinutesLive segment. Nothing else needs to be said.
If there was anything to get us any more excited about Wretch 32’s forthcoming album Growing Over Life, it’s this — a cinematic album sampler that gives the viewer a vivid idea of what to expect from the project. Extra props to Paigey Cakey, who makes an appearance in the clip as well.
Wretch’s Growing Over Life is released 2nd September; pre-order via iTunes.
