The story of how Late & Lil Tec come to do this mixtape is a sad one. For those deep Wolftown fans you'll have probably heard of Lil Tec spit on 'The Thug & The Villain' on Late's 'Villainous One' release a few years back. This collobo was hooked up by the late great American mixtape genius Big Gee Damme who sadly passed away just after mixing his mix for Wolftown entitled 'The Empire Strikes Back'.

He has built a strong fanbase since he started his career.



This guy really needs no introduction. Repping UK Hip-Hop since 1986, he’s gone from working in a record shop to running a label, PR company, online magazine, to being a producer, DJ and parent… Anna Nathanson meets Tricksta

Some UK rap fans out there feel uncomfortable when references are made to street life, crime and drugs in UK hip hop music. Which is strange when you think about it. Because crime is rife in many estates in the UK, looming over young lives daily with hands holding juicy fruits of temptation. Young rappers such as 10 Shott & Size 8 feed off what they see around them as a base to launch their rhymes from.
