THE WORST GENERATION will feature Che Lingo's 2020 singles "My Block" and Ghetts collaboration "Black Ones".

Although the album won't include his June single "Spaghetti", it will feature new collaborations with Kojey Radical, Rachel Chinouriri and Samm Henshaw.

Che Lingo announced his debut album on socials this afternoon, writing, "This has genuinely been the hardest time of my entire life creating this work, from my injury to family/friends passing away, the #BLM protests and COVID-19 lockdowns, to illnesses and mental struggles with myself and the world as it stands (no excuses just reflections). I cannot put it to anything other than God and the strength/passion I was granted that’s allowed me to persevere through these very trying times but thankfully we did and THE ALBUM IS DONE!"

He adds, "Inspired by my relationship with my childhood growing up in the ends (south london) my experiences as a ‘black male’ in London (considered the "worst" of this/any generation) and how that’s imprinted on not just me but a lot of us who grew up in estates and saw our friends and family affected by poverty and lack of support...in our heads, lives and hearts. I hope it resonates with everyone."
