Manchester’s Aitch can’t stop winning. Following the release of the Ashanti-sampled summer smash “Baby” – and then a much-welcomed link-up with UK rap OG Giggs for “Just Coz” – the 0161 native keeps proving why he’s one of the country’s leading rhymers, despite his age.

Now Aitch is back with a new single, this time sampling the timeless hook from The Stone Roses record “Fools Gold” for “1989.” Making the release strictly a Manchester affair, the merging of eras from the rainy city has been bridged through Aitch’s cut-throat rapping ability, full of references to his extravagant lifestyle and his newfound responsibility for repping Manchester to the fullest. Keeping the Kelvin Jones-directed visuals close to home, we see Aitch (and friends) causing mischief on the local estate with plenty of beer on deck.

Along with the new single, the 22-year-old also announced the release of his debut album Close To Home, due August 19. The project has been tipped to showcase a mature combination of reflection, charisma, and the self-assertive swagger he has become known for.

Speaking about the album release on Instagram Aitch said: “The past four years have been crazy. Thank you to everyone that’s been involved, I can’t appreciate you enough. Whether you’ve been here from the start or not, I got nothing but love.”

In other news, Meek Mill has just teased an unreleased track.
