Radio 1's Hackney Weekend 2012 Boy Better Know ft Skepta & JME

Hackney Weekend 2012


Saturday 23 Jun 2012 1Xtra Stage

Microphone Champions

In the 7 years since grime group and record label Boy Better Know were established by JME, they've included leading lights such as JME's brother Skepta, Wiley, Shorty and DJ Maximum. Not simply content with defining a musical genre they lead the way as entrepreneurs, giving their trademarked name to both a clothing label and mobile sim cards.

Supported from the start by BBC Introducing, BBK pioneered the infamous Rolex Sweep in response to Skepta's song of the same name. As well as appearing on tracks by Jay Sean, Tinie Tempah and remixing N-Dubz, they have released several mixtapes and their own album, V.I.P, featuring the singles Too Many Man and Goin' In.

One of the most recognised and respected collectives about, Boy Better Know are ones to get acquainted with in Hackney this June.
