Personalities | So Solid Crew | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal group, 2001–04)

A staggeringly expansive outlet for a collective of south London MCs, DJs, producers and singers trading in an early incarnation of grime music, So Solid Crew were formed from the popular Sunday afternoon pirate radio shows on Delight FM. Debut album They Don’t Know (2001) has achieved platinum status, although the fortunes of certain members of the 40+ group have been less attractive, with both Asher D. and G-Man serving prison sentences in recent years.
