Ghetts Recruits Pa Salieu And Backroad Gee For Eagerly Anticipated "No Mercy"


February 03, 2021

Much has been made of Ghetts' upcoming Conflict Of Interest. He's been teasing the album for some time on his socials, but even before that his stunning run of singles had us hoping and praying that an album was on the way.

The latest gem to emerge is one that had a lot of people talking when we first spotted it on the tracklist: "No Mercy" with Pa Salieu and Backroad Gee. Together, the three lyricists stand for everything that's exciting about UK music 2021 and their combined talents thankfully exceed every expectation as they stride commandingly over TenBillion Dreams' dramatic production.

The video, directed by Femi Ladi with animation from Ruff Mercy (who also contributed to the beautiful visuals for "Mozambique" with Moonchild Sanelly and Jaykae), packs exactly the sort of defiant and furious energy you'd expect from these three. Although Ghetts is far from retiring at this stage, there is a sort of passing of the torch here as the Plaistow vet sits them down to give them the benefit of his two decades of experience.

Tune in below and look out for the album when it drops February 19.
