Granted, introspection is nothing new for the Newham MC, whose past works have tackled cancer, colourism and voting abstention--but here he lays bare his own story with disarming frankness. On the Emeli Sandé link-up "Sonya", he vividly recalls his days as a youth offender at HMP Huntercombe, where a girl from his school became his pen pal and close confidante before vanishing from his life without warning. Detailing his fruitless attempts to reconnect, there's a tangible hint of exasperation in his voice even today.

Over fifteen years into his career, Ghetts is a veteran of the scene. He's widely considered one of grime's best lyricists, yet his popular profile has never managed to match his critical acclaim. This is partly due to his (in hindsight, wise) refusal to engage with grime's pop crossover in the late 00s, but it's also because he's never quite managed to nail the perfect 'comeback' album in the way that Skepta managed with 'Konnichiwa', or Kano with 'Made In The Manor'.
