After Lord Of The Mics 8 was announced at the end of March, and a press launch down the river Thames in conjunction with City Cruises begun the series in style, the first set of Hype Sessions were premiered on Sir Spyro’s show on 1Xtra and have now been released via Trench Magazine (https://trenchtrenchtrench.com/features/exclusive-lord-of-the-mics-8-debuts-with-hype-sessions-from-reece-west-and-f-o-s).

 The game-changing grime platform founded by Ratty and Jammer now in it’s eighth season and has seen the most iconic clashes take place such as Kano vs. Wiley, Skepta vs. Devilman, Footsie vs. Scratch, P Money vs. Big. H and more.

North London’s Recce West will be going up again Yorkshire’s F.O.S, both making their debuts on Lord Of The Mics.

Reece West tells Trench Magazine “I grew up watching all my favourite rappers participate in Lord Of The Mics, clashing, and now that im here – centre stage-it’s humbling to be a part of grime’s history book’s. The clash with F.O.S, it was a quick body bag! RIP F.O.,S, and big up the LOTM family for an opportunity and platform to demonstrate levels.

F.O.S. told Trench “Reece West Is Dead”

Reece West Reece West is from Alexandra Place (London) and is already an established emcee with a profile. Of late he has been doing touring and performing a number of shows overseas including New York. He’s bringing his unique flow and style to LOTM and he’s looking to win! Reece is hoping that LOTM will push him on to bigger things. The tune that best sums him up is called ‘Walk on Water’.

F.O.S is bringing back the passion and energy to LOTM and to grime. His biggest musical achievement has been performing with Grime Veteran D Double E. F.O.S says his single ‘Pro’ is the one you should check out to get an insight in to what he does.
