  • Lyrics
  • This is a single by British rapper Tinchy Stryder from his third album, Third Strike. The song features a heavyweight collection of fellow British rappers in the following order - Giggs, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Devlin, Example, Chipmunk, and Tinchy. (Anyone know what the collective noun for a gathering of UK MCs is? Maybe we could make one up - how about a "Britspit"?)
  • Stryder performed the song live at the MOBO Awards 2010.
  • Stryder told AOL Music how the song came about: "My producer played me this beat and straight away I knew it would make a great freestyle track. So I got together everyone that I like right now: Devlin, Professor Green, Giggs... Everyone wrote their bits individually – Pro Green wrote his verse sat on a train somewhere – then we all got together for the video shoot. It was a cool vibe - no egos clashing. We didn't party or anything, we just got the recording done."
  • AOL Music asked Stryder whose contribution he liked the most. He replied: "Personally I liked Giggs' verse the most. There's something about it. Mind you - he has double the time on the track as anyone else so maybe that's why!"
