In a five-star review of the album, NME‘s Kyann-Sian Williams wrote: “The rapper’s third studio record and first on a major label, showcasing his growth over nearly two decades in the game, proves lyricism is in rude health.
“It’s a rare achievement to make an album as thoughtful and transparent as this; you need real lyrical talent to do so. Therefore – despite the little snub at poor old NME – ‘Conflict Of Interest’ could sit on the same shelf as Dave’s ‘Psychodrama’ as an album that depicts honest tales of London through the art of true lyricism, a tradition that will never die out.”
Meanwhile, Ghetts has spoken about collaborating with Ed Sheeran on his new album, revealing the pop star went out of his way to find a studio while he was in Japan.
