AJ Tracey is a rising MC from Ladbroke Grove, west London, making big waves in the UK grime scene. Starting his career on pirate radio stations way back in 2011, he’s been a constant presence ever since. Authentic and not about to copy older more established MCs, AJ’s trademark style is fast, forceful bars.

With a new ep out on December 4, we caught up with AJ on fashion, music and London. Naturally, we needed to find out if he was on Tinder and where he gets his style inspiration from:
