The Renowned Group is a collective which manages some of the hottest names in UK music right now…

It also offers publishing services and has a strong film division that produces ‘quality programming for young people, by young people’  and they’ve recently launched their new website.

We caught up with one of their artists and founders, Wretch 32, to find out more about this groundbreaking project…

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule for us. As the first artist of Renowned Group, can you tell us what this project is all about?

Renowned group is a team of extremely passionate individuals linked in a common purpose to uphold creative art by supporting and believing in the people we take on. Willing to provide our help and resources to assist in their success in whatever field their talent may lie in such as art and poetry for example. We also have a publishing services and film media division.

Who else is involved in Renowned? Other artists and anyone we might know behind the scenes?

We have a very wide range of talent on the team, such as George The Poet. Who touches you deep through the words of poetry, Jacob Banks singer, songwriter with a new edge soulful sound, Funny Tummy an artist who is doing amazing things in the art world and has painted portraits for the likes of Rihanna, Amber Rose and Tinie Tempah.  As well as myself and my manager Zeon we have Duane Jones who you may know as Vis from radio 1xtra heading the team.

Sounds like a great team! What should we look forward to from the Group in the near future?

You can look forward to seeing and hearing the amazing, new, creative, groundbreaking talent we have under our roof in the Renowned Group.

What’s next for Wretch 32?

What’s next for me as an artist? I’m going into my second album campaign with my next single ‘Blackout’ about to drop very soon so my main focus is on that.  As I see it the more success I achieve through my music the more Renowned can build as a collective.
