London rapper Nines has announced his 2021 UK and Ireland tour, just days after landing his first number one album 'Crabs In A Bucket'.

Nines breaks social media silence following rumours claiming he was stabbed

The North-West London rapper beaten huge stars such as Metallica and Katy Perry to the number one spot, on the UK Official Charts.

The musician's third album, 'Crabs In A Bucket', was the most streamed and downloaded record of the week.

In a video Nines uploaded to Twitter, he thanked his fans and paid tribute to some of his inspirations.

'Crabs In A Bucket' is the rappers third studio album, and is his first project on a major label.

The content of the album reflects his life and what he has been through. The music documents his journey as a young boy growing up on Church Road estate and developing into a grown man.

The title encapsulates his story and represents the difficulties of trying to leave his past. Last June, the rapper was stabbed in Maida Vale – not far from his childhood home.

In an interview with The Guardian last month, Nines said "After that success I could have been anywhere in the world".

The "I See You Shining" rapper continued "I could have booked a flight and been chilling on a beach, but I'm hanging on the estate every day, top of the charts, and look, I ended up getting stabbed."

Nines revealed that he once upon a time felt like the crab in a bucket who kept trying, and failing, to climb out.

However, now he has found success in his music and film career and he is set to tour next year!
