Aitch headlines Concorde 2 this December!
There couldn’t be a more favourable moment to
be a Manchester based MC, the 0161 has been endlessly churning out rap talents
in recent years but few quite like Aitch. Hailing from New Moston, an area in
North Manchester, Aitch’s artistry derives from the sheer proximity to the UK’s
epicentre and breeding ground for all forms of underground bass music– whether
it’s rap, grime, dubstep or drum & bass.
Making a name for yourself in your hometown
isn’t always easy but to do so at 19 and then go on to repeatedly impress
audiences, subsequently attracting national attention proves one thing– Aitch
is a gifted talent. Aitch has already far exceeded his own expectations
following early support from grime stalwarts such as Wiley and Stormzy. Like
many of the people around him, rap was a talent that came by chance but taking
each moment in his stride, particularly following the response to his first
video ‘Straight Rhymez,’ Aitch is ready to take his craft to the next level.
When asked how he wants to be seen by people,
Aitch said “I don’t want to be taken too seriously and don’t watch what anyone
else says.” For a young artist who never really planned on being a rapper but
happens to possess a unique ability, it bodes well that Aitch isn’t concerned
with anything but continuously raising the bar for himself. And for Manchester
