New season, new title, and a very different podcast to kick of the ‘Who We Be Talks_’ series. Ghetts is a pioneering Grime artist who created the Movement collective with Devlin, Wretch 32, and Scorcher. Following on from a series of mixtapes, classic features, and constant shelling, Ghetts has released his latest album, ‘Ghetto Gospel - The New Testament’. It is a powerful body of work that portrays the growth of Ghetts artistry, and the versatility of his writing. To accompany this release, Ghetts curated the ‘Ghettsibition’, an art exhibition which displayed pieces of bespoke artwork to accompany the powerful narratives of each album track. This is a very special edition of ‘Who We Be Talks_’, a true family affair. DJ Semtex sits down with Ghetts at the ‘Ghettsibition’, in front of an intimate live audience consisting of his core fans, friends, and close family to discuss his evolution as an artist, MC, and father.
