Perhaps the most special part of our entire weekend down at Festibelly was Ghostpoet performing a whole set of acoustic tracks in the Amazing Radio tent. This particular track from the Mercury Prize nominated rapper is Survive It. Ahead of the Mercury Prize announcement we can firmly assert that we are on Team Ghostpoet!

His album, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, is one of the best examples of 21st century poetry and intelligent rap and is both honest and frank in its delivery. We can think of no more deserving artist on the shortlist.

He DJ'd our tent well into the night at Festibelly, finishing off our day in true style. We highly suggest you check out more from him at his profile and cheer wildly for him on Tuesday as the Mercury Prize is announced.
