Ruff Sqwad are one of the pioneering crews in Grime helping to shape the sound, and launch the careers the some of the biggest names in the genre, such as Tinchy Stryder. Clash magazine caught up with two of the members from the east London crew Prince Rapid, and Dirty Danger for a chat.
In the interview both Ruff Sqwad MCs expressed their excitement about the resurgence of Grime, a genre many have tried to claim was dead. Regaining their hunger for ripping mics, Prince Rapid and Dirty Danger have embarked on their own projects, ‘Turning Point” (released in March), and “Danger Season” respectively.
Prince Rapid, speaks on his plans to provide the next generation of Grime stars with the support, and education to help them succeed in the music business, something that wasn’t on offer when he and his Ruff Sqwad crew members started out.
