This week’s video pick is the new freestyle from UK rapper Ghetts! It’s crazy to think this is only his first ‘Mad About Bars’ freestyle. Ghetts is one of the best in the grime scene and his witty punchlines and wordplay was evident throughout this whole freestyle. For me, Ghetts, Kano, Chip and Wretch 32 are some of the best when it comes to wordplay in the UK rap scene.
There are so many quotables in this but my favourite lines have to be;
“How can I talk about killing my ops and in the same breath say black lives matter”
“Fill up the lorry with G’s Units…you know what the payola says, the mandem got yayo for days. & I got alot of money in Lloyds Bank, I’m real cakey I’m way overweight. That’s 50 in the rucksack”
“Bar after bar after bar after bar…right now I’m in a drunken state”
“I know Rona’s lurking somewhere, all I can do is pray she don’t come this way”
