Hijack came out of Brixton, London in 1988 when they signed to Music Of Life, and they dropped their debut single, the now legendary, 'Style Wars'. Ice-T heard the group and promptly signed them to his label. Hijack were one of the biggest groups the UK has ever produced and this single Daddy Rich dropped in 1991 as the group were set to drop their stunning Horns Of Jericho LP.

Gunshot followed up their amazing debut with Crime Story an equally gritty track with just as much power and punch. This would be their last release with the original line up of members, but already the group had developed their own variation on the Britcore sound and left a lot of people shook.

Back in 1990 times were a great deal harder than they are now and the sound Hip Hop artists were producing became increasingly rebellious and gritty. East London’s Gunshot comprised of MC's Alkaline, Mercury and Q-Roc (who left to join Son of Noise) and DJ's Barry Blue and White Child Rix were at the forefront of this sound and were one of the hardest groups around. They created an almighty buzz when they first came out.
