Ghetts Looks Back On His Childhood
Ghetts recently spoke about his childhood, reflecting on the good times and the not-so-good times. The grime MC excitedly told Flavour Magazine about his first kiss, saying that it happened when he was only 2 years old: "I swear I slobbered something down early, in nursery times! How old were we in nursery? Because I had a ting in nursery and I still know her now..."
When asked if he had any embarrassing stories from his teenage years to tell, he replied: "You want me to tell you the truth? Nah, it will come back to me...I ain’t got none." After pressure, he finally blurted out: "I ran into a goalpost!"
The east Londoner was also asked about his most significant childhood memory: "My dad teaching me to ride a bike, that’s an important memory you have to pass down."
As his lyrics suggest, the hyper MC has seen a fair amount of trouble in his life. So, how did his mum deal with him? "We never got told off, we got beaten! The worst ones can’t go on record – my mum will get arrested! I had bad ones, man, but I deserved them all."
