AJ Tracey surprised fans last night at a skatepark gig in West London with news of his forthcoming album and tour.
The long-awaited LP is set for an early February release, with the full tracklist to be confirmed. He dropped a new song and video for the album’s first single, ‘Doing It’ produced by Swifta Beater – a welcome return to his grime roots
After his hugely successful summer with gold-certified ‘Butterflies' (ft Not3s), and follow-up single ‘LO(V/S)ER,’ the versatile rapper/producer has shown his skillful flow is as suited to catchy melodies as it is on an Ambezza production. Gaining transatlantic approval from Drake, Baauer and 30 Seconds To Mars, the Ladbroke Grove MC is undeniably one of the most exciting grime artists this year.
Tickets for his UK & Ireland tour on sale Friday November 23 at 10am here.
