With early support in NME’s 100 Essential Artists in January 2017 and receiving consistent support from industry tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1's Phil Taggart, Mistajam, Target & Sian Anderson, Yizzy’s powerful lyrics and performances made him the one to watch from the Grime scene. He also won the first ever BBC Introducing Future Fund Award in October which saw him working closely with BBC Introducing.
Fast forward to 2018, with features in The Fader, Clash & Complex New Year lists, as well as Sian Anderson's 'Alternative List' for 1Xtra. In May, Yizzy released a critically acclaimed EP, S.O.S ‘showing off his brazen talent with his blistering bars and old school production by a host of the Grime legends.’NME
Recently with performances at Fabric, Eskimo Dance and Reading/Leeds Festival Yizzy’s following continues to grow, putting him at the top of the emerging grime artists of 2018.
