In their first ever promotion, Grimey Globe is bringing one of Grime’s pioneers to a brand new venue in Exeter.
Justin Clarke from East London, better known by his stage name Ghetts (formerly Ghetto), is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed Rap/MC Artists, synonymous with fast-flowing, hard-hitting lyrics, and a unique style of ‘syllable rhyming’.
Ghetts’ progress in the years since mixtape #1 has been all independent, all on his terms. He has toured the world, done the festivals and collaborated with some of the industry’s biggest mainstream stars. In 2013, after taking time out to be a dad, Ghetts was again prepared to talk record deals but, rather than courting the majors, he opted for start-up label Disrupt.
Fittingly, the first major release on new independent label Disrupt is Ghetts’ début album Rebel with a Cause which is available now. You can buy his top 40 album here.
