Biography

Lethal Bizzle (born Maxwell Ansah, 14.9.1982) Lethal Bizzle (also known as Lethal B) is a British rapper, of Ghanaian descent. His single 'Pow (Forward)', also known as 'Forward Riddim' was banned from airplay by a number of mainstream radio stations in the UK, but still reached number 11 in the UK Singles Chart, earning himself a MOBO award for 'Best Single'.

Music Career: Lethal Bizzle stated out as a member of More Fire Crew, a grime collective based in Waltham Forest, London. The other members of the band were Neeko, Ozzie B, Shaunie B and Commander B. More Fir Crew's track 'Oi, Blud!' reached number 10 in the UK Singles Chart in 2002, when grime music was still largely an underground concern. Lethal Bizzle is known for his public rivalry with Wiley, a founder member of the Roll Deep Crew.

In 2005, Lethal Bizzle was selected to perform as part of the Live 8 concert in Edinburgh. Other acts to perform at the event include Bono, Feeder, Eddie Izzard and Natasha Bedingfield.

The same year, Lethal Bizzle released his debut album, Against All Oddz on V2 Records. The first single from the album was 'Uh Oh! (I'm Back)'. This was followed up with 'What We Do', a collaboration between Twista, the Kray Twinz and Gappy Ranks. The final track on the album, 'Til Next Time', calls for an end to his rivalry with Wiley. Wiley responded by including More Fire Crew's 'Oi' as a bonus track on his album Da 2nd Phaze.

Lethal Bizzle was selected to perform on the NME Rock n Roll Riot Tour in 2007. The other bands performing on the package tour were The Enemy and The Wombats. The NME went on to place him at number five in their 2007/8 'Cool List'. He beat Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys, Amy Winehouse and Peter Doherty.

Lethal Bizzle second studio album, Back to Bizznizz was also released on v2 Records and featured the track 'Babylon's Burning The Ghetto', produced by Akira The Don. The album also featured Pete Doherty's band Babyshambles, after Lethal Bizzle had performed with Doherty and Kate Moss at the Hackney Empire in London.

Bizzle has collaborated with a number of very diverse artists. He featured on the Print is Dead Vol 1. compilation, with the Newcastle band yourcodenameis:milo. He also recorded 'I Got a .45', which features a sample of 'Don't Mug Yourself' by The Streets. In September 2007, Lethal Bizzle and the band Gallows performed 'Staring at the Rude Boys' by The Ruts for a T4 programme on Channel 4.

The third studio album from Lethal Bizzle, Go Hard was released in October 2009, with the title track (featuring Donaeo) as the lead single.

Bottled Off: 10 Bands Who Suffered Worse Fate Than Macaulay Culkin's Pizza Underground


Macaulay Culkin Leeds & Reading Festival 50 Cent Steel Pulse Green Day My Chemical Romance Panic At The Disco Foo Fighters Sex Pistols Lethal Bizzle Cher Lloyd

Macaulay Culkin and his pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, the imaginatively named The Pizza Underground, suffered the chagrin of a disgruntled crown in Nottingham during the city’s annual Dot To Dot festival. Culkin, who was by this point half-way through a European tour, beat a hasty retreat from the stage after being drenched with beer.

Macaulay isn't the first star to feel the audience's ire.

It proved, that in this age of disconnect, where audience members can turn to the comforts of smart phones during lacklustre gigs, music fans are still eager to openly voice their displeasure. Only a few days later, Culkin announced the cancellation of the remaining tour dates. He has not openly cited the event as the primary motivation for such a cancellation, but it seems all too obvious that the hostile reception he received had severely impacted the decision. Macaulay is far from being the first to suffer the wrath of an embittered crowd and few are safe from the ramifications of a poor or ill-judged performance. Here are ten examples of performers receiving a severe dressing down from irate audiences:

Justin Bieber Changes Name To 'Bizzle'. Lethal Bizzle Says NOT SO FAST.


Justin Bieber Lethal Bizzle

Justin Bieber has told his 50 million Twitter followers that, ahead of turning 20-years-old in 20 days, he will be changing his name to Bizzle. Clearly it fits with Bieber's intention to go down the hip-hop route, though Justin should be aware that he isn't the first person to take the moniker. He probably isn't even the thousandth person to take the moniker.

UK grime artist Lethal Bizzle got wind of the change and uploaded his response, posting a screenshot of a news story with the words LEAVE IT YEAH.
