Ghetts on grime’s American invasion and wanting to work with Pusha T – SXSW 2016
This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Claire Lobenfeld and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2016 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.
Ghetts hit SXSW 2016 as part of a number of grime MCs looking to capitalise on burgeoning interest in the UK scene stateside. Representing Britain alongside Stormzy, Section Boyz and others, the rapper – real name Justin Clarke – had plenty to say when we caught up with him about the global spotlight currently on being shed on UK youth culture, as well as his dreams of collaborating with GOOD Music icon Pusha T (“It just makes sense to me… it’s sick”).
Ghetts’ 653 EP with Rude Kid is out now.
