It has been announced that George The Poet has been nominated for a BRITs Critics Choice Award.
The rapper and spoken-word poet said:
“I feel privileged to have been shortlisted for the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award. “I always dreamed of reaching people and this nomination shows me that I’m on track.”
When George signed to Island Records in 2013 I was sceptical and wondered how a major label would market and promote an artist like George. I was sure that this “partnership” would eventually end in an almighty Twitter melt down, but Island has so far proved me wrong and done right by George.
First the announcement of a nationwide headline tour and now this.
