The grime rapper says it feels "extraordinary" to have been included on the London rich and powerful list.

Wretch 32 says he is "chuffed" to have been listed in the Evening Standard's list of London's 1000 Most Influential People of 2011.

The 'Don't Go' rapper was included alongside the likes of Adele, Florence Welch and Damon Albarn within the Rock & Pop section of the newspapers list of London's rich and powerful.

"Yeah that's quite extraordinary, I wasn't expecting that if I'm honest so I'm not quite sure how to take it," Wretch told Capital FM.

"I'm chuffed though man and I'm really happy to be in a list with such great names."

Wretch suggested he was included on the list because he had remained the same person despite his chart success this year.

"I think I've just really remained myself throughout the height of everything and just maintained my personality."

The rapper's second album 'Black and White' was released in August and has spawned a string of successful single including 'Tractor', 'Don't Go' and 'Unorthodox'.

Wretch 32 will release the album's fourth single 'Forgiveness', featuring singer Etta Bond, on 11th December.
