The Brixton-born rapper, whose second album ‘Flu Game’ came out last year, will take to the stage for a headline performance at Crystal Palace Park on Saturday, July 9 as part of the Major League Baseball Home Run Derby X.
“London never sleeps, I love it. I’m from here, I grew up here, it’s like performing in my back garden. It’s exciting, multi-cultural, has energy, it’s busy and never quiet,” AJ Tracey said in a statement.
“My sets always bring the noise and I’m gassed to bring baseball culture to a new crowd. It’ll be clash of music, sports, big hits, mad catches. Big show this summer, Crystal Palace Park, it’s due to be lit. Home Run Derby X – we’re gonna turn up.”

News of Tracey’s 2022 homecoming gig comes after the rapper took to social media earlier this week to tease a new track. “Should I let this one out?” he captioned the 30-second video clip.
