Wretch 32 has been constantly releasing material since 2011, and in celebration of his most recent offering; a visual motivational piece titled “When I See You, I See Me”, we thought what better chance to run down our Top 5 Wretch 32 moments.
What a banger. Released in 2011, the track charted at Number 5, thrusting Wretch into the charts and cementing him as a firm fixture in UK Music. Our first dose of Mr. 32, and the lesser known L Marshall. Turn it UP in this sunshine.
Another track just made for a sing-a-long. “Unorthodox” feat. Example charted at Number 2 and saw nod’s to Wretch from across the board… with later collaborations with the likes of Jacob Banks, Etta Bond and even Ed Sheeran on the way.
3. “Blackout”. Featuring Shakka.
Blackout was taken from Growing Over Life, and was released in 2013. The track propelled Wretch even further, and led to him completing a headline tour alongside the likes of George The Poet and Jacob Banks. We also happened to film an exclusive ‘Behind The Scenes’ for the video; which you can watch below.
4. “6 Words’.
A turn in Wretch’s sound, “6 Words” saw the rapper singing, and speaking on a much more emotional topic of love and children. With this new direction, Wretch has moved forwards; creating poignant material with a true message.
5. “When I See You, I See Me”.
Wretch’s latest offering, this visual motivational piece speaks on the modern day regular superstars. Wretch wanted to show that kids who have grown up on the estates, can push through the general stereo-types, becoming icons – not necessarily famous; but more important than a celebrity. Crucial members of a community. The video feature regular iconic starts from Tottenham; perfectly illustrating exactly what Wretch seeks to communicate.
“A superstar [to me] is a respected individual, who understands the role they play in society; and wears that, like a tailored suit.”
