As Ghetts releases his new album Ghetto Gospel - The New Testament, the London-based rapper guides Tara Joshi through 13 favourite records, from Michael Jackson to Jay-Z, Tupac, Notorious BIG and those closer to home including Kano and Klashnekoff


Jay Z - The Blueprint
That's my guy. That's my favourite rapper of all time. To tell you the honest truth, I was incarcerated and my mum bought me Blueprint. I'd heard 'Izzo' on the radio and I thought it was alright - I wasn't thinking it was sick or anything, but I thought it was a good single. When I got the album, I was blown away. 'Takeover', 'Renegade' – hard songs. Hard shit. That was my CD! It was comforting, listening to my music and getting to pass the time.
