Hackney Weekend 2012


Sunday 24 Jun 2012 1Xtra Stage

Moving Forward

Born Maxwell Ansah, Lethal Bizzle is regularly greeted with a pow after releasing the massive, controversial and unforgettable track of the same name in 2004. Not only did this reach number 11 on the UK chart but it also won a MOBO for Best Single and has set Mr Ansah apart as a heavyweight of grime.

Hailing from Walthamstow, the lethal one is famous for creating rhymes full of satire, passing comment on the current state of hip hop through his music. Previously a member of the More Fire Crew, he's set a standard of greatness with his potent sets at Live 8, Glastonbury, the 1Xtra Live Lounge and the incomparable Fire In The Booth with Charlie Sloth.

Albums Against All Oddz and Back To Bizznizz cement his reputation as a serious influence on the UK hip hop scene. He's recently been working with Lady Leshurr, promoting his new single Not A Saint plus setting up his own clothing label named Dench. With his cousin Sway also on the Hackney Weekend bill, Lethal B's performance will be a family reunion you don't wanna miss.
