From his 2008 album 'Wretchrospective', to 'Upon Reflection' in 2019, Wretch 32 is back and this time he comes with the surprise announcement of his brand new project, 'little BIG Man'.
It makes sense that with this album, we get to see further growth, as Wretch takes a step out of his comfort zone to deliver this new project.

There has been a lot that has happened over the last year, so having a voice that puts things into perspective is important. That is an important aspect for any artist: the reliability factor. This is something that Wretch has done in the past and continues to do with little BIG Man. He discusses themes like incarceration, violence, and poverty.
“I was trying to put myself in a 17-year-old’s body and trying to see how they feel,” he explains. “How does it feel to come out of prison at that age? What struggles do I face? As a senior, I’m seeing a pattern and a cycle and this was about me trying to understand their experiences.”
There are also collaborations on the album from artists including K-Trap, Nafe Smallz, Tiggs Da Author, Kayy Kayy, Blade Brown, M Huncho, SL, Little Simz, and Henrie Kwushue.
Ahead of the album's release, a short film that focuses on the themes of the album has been released. The film was directed by Edem Wornoo who has worked with artists such as Dave and Fredo.
Wretch will provide listeners with words of wisdom as he guides us through little BIG Man and tells a story about his life growing up.
