2002 Flashback: Oi! - More Fire Crew


March 2012 marks 10 years since More Fire Crew reached number eight in the UK chart with grime classic Oi!

In 2002, the rappers were among a handful of underground, British acts paving the way for current chart-toppers such as Tinie Temper, N Dubz and Tinchy Stryder.

Lethal B, the group’s leader, now performs solo, and earlier this week revealed that he’s been added to the bill for Radio 1’s Hackney Weekender, which Jay Z will headline in June.

Above, watch More Fire’s hype performance at the Best of British Awards, which Overground produced in conjunction with music TV station Channel U (now AKA) and Trinity Media.
