The North London MC hopes his book will open up the road to even more talent. Whenever people expect a certain thing from me, I like to surprise them. Rapthology certainly does that. At times, it reads like a self-help guide to navigating the pitfalls of the music business. Most of all, Rapthology is an interesting, easily digestible read that shines a light on the hard work, dedication and thinking that goes into making music, as well as some insight into the background of its hyper-assured year-old author. He also has a serious point to prove. It was important to show that the thought process behind that is deeper than it sometimes appears on the surface. The two albums that followed sold in smaller numbers, but continued to demonstrate his evolution as an artist not afraid to push at the boundaries of UK hip-hop. His most recent set, Upon Reflection, was released late last year and dealt with gender and mental health issues.
We caught up with Wretch 32 to discuss his new album 'Growing Over Life'...
Dude in England we know that pain, We don't have school shooters and neither would you if you just made it harder for people to get guns its not like we have no guns in the UK www. This is coming from someone who has held a ting and hurt people with it. And I'll do it again but fuck man in your country its kids but in mine is just anyone who acts like they're sick. Everything Wretch is saying has like at minimum, 3 different meanings. That is what makes him an amazing rapper for people just getting into the UK scene, and an amazing rapper for even the vets but he is thebest rapper there is when you catch it all.

At his most revolutionary, raw, lyrical and loving, Wretch 32 presents Growing Over Life. Do you think that has added pressure to this release at all? I wondered why now was the right time for you to strike with a new LP? Obviously, in that time there was mixtapes that were out — Wretchersise, Young Fire Old Flame — probably like a hundred feature verses. Do you know what I mean? There was always content that was out there. I want them to decide whether they want to continue with me, man. I do it because I need to. So I want to get everything out. How would you describe that writing and recording process for you?
