Lethal Bizzle (also known as Lethal B) is one of the fastest growing East London Grime artists. In December, 2004 he released “Pow (Forward)”, also known as “Forward Riddim”, which was banned from airplay by some mainstream stations; it entered the UK Singles Chart at number 11 in the first chart of 2005. His former group, the More Fire Crew released the album More Fire Crew CV which did poorly and they were dropped from their record label. In 2002 he brought out a song called “Oi!” with his former crew which reached the top ten in the UK Singles Charts.
Lethal Bizzle is signed to V2 Records, on which he released the album Against All Oddz in August 2005 which sold 45,000 plus. The first single from it, entitled “Uh Oh! (I’m Back)”, was released in the same month and peaked at number 47 in the UK Singles Charts. He has won awards for his work including a MOBO for best single. In early July 2005 Lethal Bizzle was one of the very few black British artists to appear on stage at the final Live 8 concert in Edinburgh.

On September 28, Bizzle teamed up with UK hardcore band, Gallows to perform a special cover on T4’s Transmission programme from Cambridge. Bizzle and Gallows performed The Ruts “Staring At The Rude Boys” in which Gallows played a hardcore backline and Bizzle rapped over the top. They have gone on to release the cover as a single.
He was number 5 in the NME cool list 2007 beating the likes of Amy Winehouse, Alex Turner and Pete Doherty. He is known for his rap rivalry with Roll Deep Crew member Wiley. However, in the final track, Til Next Time, on his latest album, Against All Odds, Lethal Bizzle calls for an end to this rivalry.
