Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hangs with Grime artists Wretch 32 and Chip
In America there has long been a connection between rappers and athletes, mainly because they tend to come from similar environments, and have overcome the odds to reach a level of success most don’t. In the UK for a long time rappers hadn’t quite achieved the level of success as Footballers, but as a new wave of artist are becoming stars that narrative is changing.
Rappers Wretch 32 and Chip take a picture a with Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Chip is appropriately wearing a Arsenal strip as a gunner, but Wretch 32 remains a proud Tottenham Hotspur fan. It’s good to see that the footballing rivalry between both north London clubs hasn’t affected the mutual respect between the midfielder, and the Spurs supporter.
