A WRETCH WITH FIRST RATE LYRICS.

HIS name's Jermaine Scott but if you know your rappers, you're more likely to know him as Wretch 32.

Fellow rapper Tinie Tempah, DJ Mark Ronson and papers including The Sun ("One of the scene's most highly regarded lyricists") and The Guardian ("The rapper's rapper") have sung his praises. The 26-year-old from Tottenham embarks on an autumn tour to promote debut album Black and White.

The promoters say: "Lyrically, Wretch 22 steers away from clichd self-aggrandising boasting and couplets about fame and girls, and instead paints incisive and colourful vignettes of everyday working class city life from the perspective of a young man born and raised on one of the most notorious estates in London."

Catch him at Newcastle O2 Academy 2 on October 17. Call 0844 477 2000.
