2o years ago last Thursday.
I still remember the first time I heard you growl on the radio. It was Westwood, only ever Westwood, on Capital Radio’s hip hop show and I was fifteen years old growing up in Sutton.
When he introduced you I remember the crackle on my shit FM radio. Even the white noise was in awe.
What followed was incredible. It was as deep as it was raw. The flow, the delivery and charisma that I still don’t believe has been matched in hip hop since.
Still one of my heroes
RIP Biggie Smalls
