A musical Molotov cocktail” NME

Absolutely key to hip-hop arriving and taking off in the UK – legends!” DJ Yoda

Their influence was truly crucial – laid the groundwork for the later grime scene” FACT Magazine

The group’s South London-inspired music still reverberates in the work of their descendants – Roots Manuva, grime MCs like Dizzee Rascal – more than two decades later.” Red Bull Music Academy

The best UK hip-hop album in history. ‘Gangster Chronicle’ puts you inside a world – just as, say, ‘Illmatic’ does” Hip-Hop Connection

Rodney P and Bionic still sound great and totally ahead of the game” CLASH


Before there was Stormzy and Dizzee there was Rodney P & Bionic aka London Posse. Hands down the most influential British rap group of all time. Without London Posse there would be no Grime or UK Hip-Hop as it is today.

Before London Posse hit the scene in 1987 it was still commonplace for Britain’s aspiring MCs to rhyme with American accents. London Posse came from sound system culture and it showed. British accents rhymed in a ragga style over hard hitting beats that would have won any late 80’s sound clash.

30 years after their debut single, all three surviving members (Rodney P, Bionic & DJ Billy Biznizz) perform for the first time in 20 years. These are sure to be the hottest tickets of the year so make sure you grab one while they last.
