Wretch 32 prepared for criticism
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.
