AJ Tracey is the 23-year-old grime artist taking London to the world in 2018. AJ’s addictive sound combines the razor sharp wit of UK street music with an array of international rap influences, and it’s already seen him appear on tracks with Missy Elliot, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross and A$AP Rocky. AJ was the new name on everyone's lips in 2016, picking up two MOBO nominations and a whole host of industry accolades, including selection as one to watch by MTV, Vevo and the BBC Sound Poll. 2017 saw him exceed those expectations, performing at over 100 shows worldwide, crashing into the UK album chart at #13 with no label backing, and rounding off the year with a huge 29-date European tour.
