MTV IGGY: PREMIERE: Ghetts Relives Rowdy Past On 'Man Like Me'
By Joseph 'JP' Patterson
Today, we have the pleasure of premiering one of the standout cuts from Ghetts' forthcoming Rebel With A Cause album, entitled Man Like Me. Lyrically based on his long-gone ruffian days and current state of bossness, J. Clarke’s three-minute rhyme workout also features a verse, hook, and production work from fellow east Londoner, Prince Rapid. And, as you’d expect with most of Rapid’s grime beats, it has the winning Ruff Sqwad formula; heavy on the drum machine, synths, and bass-stabs, the famous "hey!" sample also makes a recurring appearance. (The twenty-second jazzy surprise near the end of the track is pretty fly, too). Listen to Man Like Me below, as Ghetts brings his fuck-the-world style and tongue-twisting flow back out to play one more time.
