In February this year, well-known and revered music lawyer and exec Richard Antwi sadly passed away. Someone responsible for helping launch the careers of so many, the tributes poured in from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Lethal Bizzle, Estelle, and also Wretch 32. Today, Wretch shares the visuals for a track entitled "Antwi", a dedication to his former manager and mentor. It's not so much a tribute, but rather a cathartic outpouring of energy and inspiration: "It's like an intense display of my art," revealed Wretch. "After the Fire In The Booth, my eyes opened and I know there are people out there that still want to hear what I have to say."
Over the track's blaring horns and rising drum patter, the north London rhymer is in an undeniably confident mood, proclaiming himself Shakespeare with great hair. A raw expression of himself at this current moment in time, "Antwi" marks another turning point for Wretch this year, defying his usual spot-on approach to pop convention. It's a blasting chorus-less stream of consciousness as the rapper—in loving memory of the late Richard Antwi—heralds the next chapter. Watch the Matt Walker-directed video above.
