The film's out tomorrow. It's well worth catching. Big up Bashy for being music supervisor on this film, after Black Boys and this, he's on the rise and destined for big tings. He deserves it, I've been aware of him since Chupa Chups mixtape from a few years back. He's been grinding hard.
A message from Bizzle's PR:
Lethal Bizzle performed his set at Download Festival, Donington on Sunday 15th June.
His booking caused a bit of controversy with a few people who discussed it on the forums saying there was no place for Bizzle and urban music at Download.
Bizzle took to the stage on Sunday to a barrage of bottles coming from a hostile crowd, and announced ‘im not scared of you, I’m doing my set’. Unfazed he proceeded to do an absolute blinding set, and by the end had the haters quietened by the cheers from the rest of the crowd sreaming ‘we want more!’
During the show he was pelted with some racially abusive objects including a banana skin which had the words “bizzle you black c**t” written on the inside in black marker, as well as some figures of monkeys.
He totally rocked the show and whether anyone agrees with him being on the bill or not that can’t be denied.
Bizzle says to the guys that did this ‘fuck you’!
Footage of it raining bottles at Download
Whether you love, hate or are indifferent to Bizzle, racism of this nature is totally unacceptable. However, I do think it was most likely some over-excited lairy, pissed up teenagers who went a bit OTT, in their anti-Bizzle, grime has no place at Download, silliness. I hope so, coz it's more than a little scary if this comparable to John Barnes being pelted with bananas when he played for Liverpool in the late 1980s.
