He pioneered the music as a member of Pay As U Go Cartel, then with his crew Roll Deep Entourage and as a white label star, through which he refined the ice cold sound of eski-beat. His first album, “Treddin’ On Thin Ice†was released by XL and he produced and masterminded most of Roll Deep’s album “In At The Deep End†(Relentless). Since leaving XL he has inspired the grime world through his “Tunnel Vision†mixtapes which sell in their tens of thousands and last year he self-released his own album “2nd Phazeâ€.
