Newham Generals are an English grime crew from East London, currently consisting of MCs D Double E and Footsie and DJ MS1. They are best known for their singles Frontline, Hard and Like It Or Not as well as their live performances. The group was founded in 2004, after D Double E had a disagreement with fellow members N.A.S.T.Y Crew. The crew made regular appearances on pirate label and released a number of singles on white label vinyl, the group was signed to Dizzee Rascal's Dirtee Stank record label in 2005, after D Double E showed Dirtee Stank a CD of the groups work, and promptly released a mix CD on the label in 2006 entitled The Best of Newham Generals Vol. 1. Founding member Monkstar left the group, and music, in 2007 to follow religion. The group released their debut album Generally Speaking on Dirtee Stank three in April 2009 which was their last release to feature Monkstar and an EP Bag of Grease the following year, as well as various solo projects. Dizzee Rascal idolised D Double E as an MC in his youth.
