After releasing several critically acclaimed projects independently and taking the UK rap scene by storm with several well-received freestyles, many deem Potter to be one of the greatest rappers to emerge from the United Kingdom. He finally penned a deal with 0207 Def Jam in 2021 and the album is situated on the label.

We have discussed that he has unfortunately been recalled to prison for an unproven allegation of fraud by false representation which he strenuously denies, and his management have released visuals such as Scenes in his absence. The incarceration will not hinder the buzz surrounding his release, however, they have said the radio will not play his music because of it.

Part of the roll out for Real Back In Style has also included various ‘pop-ups’ where you can write Potter a letter, buy CDs, and buy official merchandise such as T-shirts and hoodies. They’ve popped-up in London and Leeds thus far.

Potter’s successes are mostly underground due to the nature of his music, however, he has had some chart success. Historically, his largest official charting release is Gangsteritus which peaked in the Top 40 at 12th place. Mixtapes Training Day 3 which peaked at 3rd place and Thanks for Waiting which peaked at 8th place, all follow his recent rise to commercial success, and it was anticipated Real Back In Style would capitalise on this.
