British rapper Jermaine Scott (aka Wretch 32) rose out of London’s Tiverton Estate projects in Tottenham, along with his peers Devlin and Chipmunk. In the latter half of the 2000s, he joined grime collectives Combination Chain Gang and the Movement, and put out solo efforts as mixtapes. With 2007’s Teacher’s Training Day and 2008’s Wretchrospective, Wretch 32 started showing mainstream potential, cleverly pairing hip-hop and grime in his songs. Ministry of Sound signed him by the decade's end, and Wretch's first major-label single “Tracktor” was slated for a January 2011 release. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
