Earlier this year, highly respected music industry lawyer and executive Richard Antwi - responsible for birthing the careers of many of the UK's top urban artists - passed away. Perhaps most personally affected amongst the many tributes that immediately began to pour in was North London-based rapper Wretch 32, who on many occasions referred to Antwi as his mentor and was heavily involved in him signing his first record deal with Ministry of Sound and securing three consecutive top five singles, including his biggest hit to date 'Don't Go' which landed at number one in 2011.

Wretch has been working towards his third studio album for a while and was sharing ideas with Antwi just days before his passing. According to the wordsmith, he played this track to Antwi who declared that "People need to hear this, this needs to go global." Wretch adds that this is the "1st chapter of the new beginning," and assures that his new album Growing Over Life is very much on the way. While 'Antwi' namechecks his mentor, this is more of an emotional outpouring of energy; a stream of consciousness and perhaps a message of intent for his future movements rather than just a musical tribute. The minimalistic production allows for Wretch's quick-witted, rapid-fire bars to take focus.
