Roll Deep: MOBO TV Interview
Though being in the scene for a fair amount of years and being the first building block for some of the UK’s biggest stars such as Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder and Skepta being associated with the urban group, Roll Deep only found commercial success a couple of years ago. Roll Deep's storming year came in 2010 saw Wiley’s boys secured two number one singles in ‘Good Times’ featuring Jodie Connor and ‘Green Light’ featuring Tania Foster. Roll Deep are set to return in 2012 with a bang. Although Wiley is momentarily taking a backseat for this record, Roll Deep have secured new member in Tania Foster for their 5th studio album.
MOBO TV caught up with the whole gang before Christmas where they were rehearsing their new material in front of our very eyes. This exclusive behind the scenes footage will show you how one of the UK’s most successful grime groups relaxes and goes through a carefully selected set. This is followed by an in-depth interview with eight of the nine individuals there on the day (Target was missing unfortunately). In attendance were J2K, Breeze, Brazen, Flow Dan, DJ Karnage, Scratchy, Tania Foster and Manga to give out each of their two cents. Manga even gives us a quick freestyle and Brazen teaches us a dance move.
