The grime megastar’s sequel to “Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament” from 2018 has a starry list of artists including Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Emeli Sande, Wretch 32, Skepta, Dave and Pa Salieu, and the collection is in the running for No. 1 on the UK Official Album Chart.
And the 36-year-old MC – real name Justin Clarke – has insisted that he normally wouldn’t be “comfortable” getting his music to the top of the charts, but he admitted it was a “big one.” Profit “would be for everyone involved if the LP continued to win.
On ‘The Rebecca Judd Show’ on Apple Music 1, he said, “I’ll be honest with you, this album has so many different people and it has created opportunities for so many different people, it’s bigger than me. Even I just call the culture to say, hey, let’s get it down to number 1. I usually don’t do this at all or feel good about it, but it’s like I’m thinking, yo fam, this is bigger than you, you know? These are opportunities for a producer that no one has heard of before, and all you have to do is lose your ego for a second. This is a huge win for everyone, for all of us, including the culture you know. “

Ghetts also admitted that he struggles with self-doubt with every new release he puts out.
He said, “If it’s an album, it’s like a boy, that’s another chapter in the autobiography. Do you know what i’m saying Even in a large catalog, you know that people will compare it to your previous work. So it’s like, ‘yo, do I still have it in me?’ “
While the “Proud Family” star admitted he felt “blessed” to be able to record a record that is so “positive” in such difficult times in the world.
On the “pure energy” of the LP, he added, “I feel blessed, and we did the album from a positive outlook too. Everyone involved, we really kept the energy clean, and I feel like people can see that from the artists there and feel like these people deserve it man. Because it was just pure, there was so much negativity in the world, and we just got together and were like you know what? Let’s just be positive about what we’re doing. “
