British MC Lethal Bizzle's explicit lyrics of violence and street tales of East London drew reaction and controversy but also gave him immense popularity among followers of garage and grime in the 2000s. Attracted to the intense energy of raves at a young age, Lethal B (born Maxwell Ansah) loved the speed of drum'n'bass. Artists like Roni Size and Shy FX first inspired him to do music, but early-'90s New York hip-hop also spoke to him. Becoming one of the U.K.'s most popular underground artists, Bizzle took some of the brunt of a growing backlash against grime music originating from some press and political pundits. ~ Cyril Cordor
