Aitch Features ED Sheeran On “My G” Music Video

Platinum-selling 22-year-old Manchester rapper Aitch releases his debut album, Close To Home. To celebrate this milestone moment, Aitch reveals the heart-warming video for “My G” featuring Ed Sheeran.

Displaying a more mature, reflective, and personal side of Aitch’s songwriting, “My G” is a loving tribute from the Manchester rapper to his 12-year-old little sister, affectionately called “G”, who has Down’s Syndrome. Paired with a music video directed by long-term visual collaborator Kelvin Jones, the visual was filmed at The Langdon Down Centre and features a moving performance from Aitch, as he reminisces viewing old childhood and family photos over a soothing silhouette of Ed Sheeran.

“You probably won’t even understand this
So I’ma try and paint the picture on a canvas
Just wanna tell you you won’t ever get abandoned
Can’t lie, I started writin’ and got anxious
But you’rе my biggest blessin’, what a life that I’vе been granted
One in a million, couldn’t try it if we planned it,”
– Aitch (My G) (

Setting the scene with “BelgraveRoad_1”, Close To Home showcases Aitch’s remarkable journey within hip-hop. “Fuego”, “Cheque” and “Louis Vuitton” are blessed with the rapper’s trademark lyricism and cheeky suave. He reunites with AJ Tracey on “R Kid”, while laidback summery bop “Sunshine” featuring New Machine embraces a new tangent of melodic guitar riffs.

The album’s title track “Close To Home”, which features a children’s choir, sees Aitch up close and personal, putting his private thoughts on paper for the first time. In Disguise featuring Bakar, the Shaun Ryder-assisted and Stone Roses-sampling 1989” and platinum-selling #2 Fred again.. produced hit “Baby featuring R&B icon Ashanti. In fact, Ashanti and Aitch performed “Baby” together during BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2022.

When speaking about his album’s title, Aitch says: “As much as I say that I’m trying to get out of the ends, and I want to go elsewhere, I always end up back in the same place. Even across the other side of the world, I feel like I bring a sense of Manchester; whether I’m in London or Australia, I’m still Close To Home.”

Taking Close To Home on the road for the first time, Aitch will kick off a sold-out headline in the UK followed by a run in the rest of Europe early next year. On the performance front, recently Aitch was brought out as a special guest during Jack Harlow’s set at the 2022 Wireless Festival.
