It’s a rare achievement to make an album as thoughtful and transparent as this; you need real lyrical talent to do so.

The Observer

Cinematic in scope, movingly honest, with a phalanx of big-name guests, Justin Clarke’s major-label debut is a dazzling piece of storytelling.

The Line of Best Fit

On his major label debut, Conflict Of Interest, the decorated East London wordsmith refines the winning formula of his past long-players, getting up close and personal while still finding room for a plethora of A-listers including Ed Sheeran, Stormzy and Skepta.

The Guardian

Conflict of Interest feels like the work of an artist who’s in it for the long haul rather than short-term rewards.

Ghetts has been a name within the UK grime scene that I've been familiar with for a little bit now. While I hadn't heard a full project from him before, I had heard a few songs here and there and it was about time that I had heard an album from him as he had interested me with his explosive delivery and dynamic flows like on the track artillery.

Very good hip-hop record, and it comes from the person who usually isn't convinced by the genre at all. I love that, apart from the thoughtful, precise lyrics, Ghetts took notice of the instrumental stuff, and it's something that really adds to the value of this album.
