Although Cel22 had been doing music since 2004, it was not until 2006 that he was to start to take the game seriously.
2006 marked the release of his debut Hip-Hop mixtape entitled, ‘A.T.L - Attitude Towards Life’, which was short lived due t both a lack of promotion and a prison sentence.December 2008, his debut Grime mixtape 'SLANG WITH GRAMMAR' was due to hit the shelves, but due to another prison sentence it was pushed back until November 2009. Because of the delay and in feeling that he failed his fans on such a late delivery, he decided he had no choice but to distribute 'SLANG WITH GRAMMAR' via free download. Non-release was not an option, as the material had been so highly anticipated.
Due to a number of prison sentences, Cel22 has so far, not been able to release his music with consistency - something he aims to change in line with future releases.
Currently, Cel22 has two releases available to down load for free,'BACK IN THE BUSINESS', the official EP and THE REE UP MIXTAPE.
Future Releases Include "START OF THE SAGA" 10.01.2011 THE DEBUT TMT MIXTAPE WITH OTHER CREW MEMBERS,FRISCO LAYZ AND DANNY B. The New MIXTAPE LIGHTBRICKS IS AVALABLE TO DOWNLOAD NOW VIA THE LINK BELOW
Wretch 32 (three-two), is an English rapper and former Grime MC from Tottenham, London where he grew up the son of a local reggae DJ in the Tiverton Estate. He was a member of the grime collective "Combination Chain Gang", before forming The Movement with Scorcher, Ghetts, and Mercston. The world and online community including the UK music industry especially, first set eyes on Wretch 32 when 32 was given the opportunity to appear on RMC TV Artist Spotlight back in 2005 around the same time as N-Dubz drummer BreakBeat. Wretch 32 – The Beginning! Needless Beef a short film based on UK street life and gun crime starring Wretch 32 was first edited and broadcast exclusively on RMC TV, which later inspired MTV’s Dubplate Drama Series. He is also often associated with the TMT crew, also from Tottenham, due to his close relationship to fellow Tottenham rapper Cell 22. The pair have made several songs together. He released his first single "Traktor" in January 2011.
