Armed with his gravely flow, Grime MC Big Zuu is an artist firmly on 2018’s radar.
Part of the MTP Crew alongside AJ Tracey, Ets, Sketch and more, Zuu is aiming to bring Grime to a global audience. Along with a handful of others, he has helped breathe new life into the art of MCing.
Growing up in West London’s Mozart Estate, his self-entitled debut EP dropped in early 2017 and has collected more than 1 million plays on Spotify. Following this, Zuu released a tribute track for the victims of the Grenfell fire tragedy; his honest lyrics resonated and rang true for the nation – showing how music can help bring communities together. Zuu followed this with the critically acclaimed ‘Hold Dat’ EP and featured on renowned YouTuber, KSI’s, track – ‘Uncontrollable’ which has clocked up over 3 millions streams.
A successful online radio show and podcasts on LinkUp TV have only helped to enhance Zuu’s reputation and continual support from a host of Radio 1XTRA DJ’s is helping to bring Zuu’s music to a wider audience. With heavy hitting releases and a mixtape in the pipeline for 2018, this promises to be a big year for the West London MC.
