Waterstones Says

In this intimate and deeply thought-provoking memoir, the north-west London born poet and storyteller charts his background, education and life experiences that have shaped him and his art in affective prose.

'By telling my story, I've laid out my predicament: I'm a Black entertainer on the frontline of the War on Blackness, but it's not always clear who I'm fighting for.'

Born to Ugandan parents on the St Raphael's Estate in Neasden, north-west London, George has always been an ambitious storyteller. Influenced by his hometown, George started MCing , and eventually found his voice in poetry and with it an avenue for change.

In Track Record: Me, Music, and the War on Blackness, George sheds a light on his upbringing and education, while also breathing life into music as a powerful force - one that has ignited social movements and has the lead to dramatic change. In this deeply personal and thought-provoking book, George looks back at his own education, his time at university, and his beginnings as a musician, and the moments that have shaped him.

As he reflects on his own evolution as an artist, George weaves a story that goes beyond traditional memoir. He dives deep into the complexities of the economy, colonialism, while also diving deep into forgotten moments in history which form the war on blackness. By understanding how structural inequality, and how marginalised communities have been suffocated by social exclusion, George tells a story that is personal and political, highlighting the many injustices facing Black artists today..

Honest, thought-provoking, and lyrical, Track Record is a ground-breaking memoir by one of the talented and gifted voices today.
