Description

George the Poet knows better than anybody the importance of reading your surroundings. Born to Ugandan parents on the St Raphael’s Estate in Neasden, north-west London, he began rapping when he was 15. This environment was his teacher and his inspiration: it gave him the language, the experience and the skills to turn his hobby into his career. After five years as a rapper, a change of environment pushed him in another direction and into the world of poetry. With this change he shot to fame and built a worldwide fanbase. But something was missing and he found himself searching for something greater. He ended up focusing on one question: Why? ‘Track Record’ is George the Poet’s engrossing and deeply personal account of his search for purpose.
