If your like your hip-hop smooth then Ghost Poet will hit the spot. Born Obaro Ejimiwe to Dominican and Nigerian parentage, the Bristolian gives no quarter when on the mic.

His musical influences are equally diverse, taking on MF Doom, Iggy Pop, and Fela Kuti while growing up on grime and deep house. Ghost Poet comfortably wanders through several genres in sleepy fashion, carrying his listeners along as he tells stories of life and regret. He is the latest serving of defiant brit hip-hop since Roots Manuva.

The video for his latest single ‘Survive It’ is visual treat with a nice after glow. Big things from this man to come.
