More than 10 years since he first started making a name for himself, the Ghetts of 2014 is almost unrecognisable from the road-repping youngster he once was. First earning his stripes as part of N.A.S.T.Y crew, he’d soon splinter off to form The Movement with mates Wretch32, Devlin, Scorcher, Mercston and Lightning – with the group going on to push a more Hip-Hop leaning take on Grime that won them fans and critics aplenty. Perhaps reflective of how far the scene as a whole has moved on, The Movement have all individually achieved varying levels of commercial success that would have once been hard to imagine during the underground, mixtape focused days of the mid noughties. Ghetts for his part finally released his debut album proper, ‘Rebel With A Cause’, earlier this year – an album that was carefully balanced between the streets and the charts. Nominated for 3 MOBOs following the release of the album, Ghetts has been putting together a live show with his band The Rebels and is gearing up to release the emotive ‘Fire Burning’ as a single.
