Chrisette Michele revealed last night on her Tumblr that whilst she was in London last month she recorded an exclusive track with Wretch 32. Read below for more for Chrisette explaining the studio session.
I was meeting up with a famous UK rapper in just an hour. London was turning out to be an incredible meeting of minds.
So, I get to this little studio where Amaru and Jerry took me. I hang out with some producers that Jerry introduces me to. One of them played me a track and I fell in love. His name was Wizzy Wow. Google him should you have the chance. I was so impressed by his music. We all converse about the state of Hip Hop music and culture in general. Indie media and self promo (conversations I tend to be in quite often these days).
Skip to the next moment… In walks the incredibly cool UK super star “Wretch 32”. If you don’t know, now you know. His aura was great. Smile. Positive energy and just as HAUTE in person as he is in all his video’s and magazines (I pray he doesn’t read this).
Anyway, so we start chatting about the “mixtape” ideas and I gave him a list of Audrey movie titles. He stopped me at “How To Steal a Million”.
We pull out our iphones and start writing over the looped Wizzy Wow beat. Somebody orders curry chicken and some other stuff… I get behind the mic… Wretch gets behind the mic… Everybody’s having a good time. Song’s done. Nights over.
We were supposed to go out and party after, but I wanted to stay and hang with the engineer. I LOVE engineers, and this one was special.
We’re looking forward to everyone hearing “How to steal a million”ft Wretch 32, hopefully you are too!
