More Fire Crew
|More Fire Crew|
|Origin||Waltham Forest, London|
The crew was formed when Ozzie B and Lethal Bizzle went to secondary school together. Ozzie and Lethal soon joined up with their friend Seani B, who was a DJ on Amy FM, and formed a crew called the 'Cream Team'. Meanwhile, More Fire's third prospective member Neeko was in a sound engineering training programme. All three would join up when Ozzie left the Cream Team in the summer of 2000 for the Mad Dog Crew and Neeko, also a Mad Dog member, was invited to guest MC on Amy FM by Seani B. This led to them joining up with Lethal, who had become a resident MC at the same station, then they formed the More Fire Crew.
They are best known for their track "Oi!" in 2002 which reached number 7 in UK Singles Chart. In 2002 their first album, More Fire Crew CV, was released, and they contributed a cover of Gabrielle's "Dreams" to the album NME & Warchild Presents 1 Love. In the same year they were dropped by their record label, with Lethal setting up his own eponymous record label and going on to a successful solo career.
