LETHAL BIZZLE joins us for another massive Bank Holiday Sunday at Club Republic!
Lethal Bizzle, is an English rapper and actor from Walthamstow, London, of Ghanaian heritage. He emerged in 2002 as a grime MC as part of More Fire Crew, with their grime single “Oi!” charting in the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart. His debut solo single “Pow (Forward)” attracted attention for its aggressive content, charting at number 11 despite being banned from airplay and clubs. Although known notably for his single releases, Lethal Bizzle released his debut studio album, Against All Oddz, in 2005, followed by Back to Bizznizz in 2007.
Throughout his career Lethal Bizzle has experimented with blending mainstream chart genres such as dance music with grime, leading to numerous top 40 singles. He is known for his singles “Pow! (Forward)“, “Rari WorkOut” and “Fester Skank“, including other top 40 songs such as “The Drop“, “Pow 2011” and “Party Right” – all of which have been non-album releases, besides “Pow 2011“, which was included on his first compilation album Best of Bizzle (2011).
In late 2016, Lethal Bizzle announced he would be releasing his first album after eight years, following his third studio album Go Hard (2009). The album was revealed to be titled Lennox Rd in December 2016, following a teaser for the lead single off the album. The lead single, “Round Here” featuring Giggs and Flowdan was released on 10 January 2017.
In early April 2017, Bizzle abruptly preceded the release of Lennox Rd with the announcement of an EP titled You’ll Never Make a Million from Grime, featuring a guest appearance from Skepta. The seven-track EP was released 5 May 2017, charting at number 79 on the UK Albums Chart. It became Bizzle’s highest-charting album release. The second single released from the EP was “Hold You” featuring Mostack.
Most recently Bizzle has featured on the smash hit “Gun Lean (Remix)” produced by UK artist Russ and 2019 looks set to be the year of Lethal Bizzle with him already featuring in festival line-ups throughout the UK such as Summer Fest and Made Festival.
