The Capital Weekender With Ministry of Sound 10pm - 6am
UK rapper Wretch 32 has revealed that he was prepared for backlash after sampling Stone Roses’ Fools Gold on his latest single, ‘Unorthodox’.
The singer told the Daily Star;
“I was totally prepared for a slating. I imagined loads of Stone Roses fans telling me I’d messed up a classic. People criticise before they congratulate, so it was surreal when I started getting positive feedback.
“Ian Brown giving it the thumbs-up was amazing. I loved Fools Gold so much when I was growing up. It has a real sunny vibe.
“It just brings to mind summer and playing footie in the park for me.”
Looking at this weeks mid-week sales, it looks like the 28 year old had nothing to worry about as the track is currently sitting at No. 2 in the iTunes chart.
