Biography

Fem Fel (real name Femi Falola) was a late-comer to music. He discovered his talent for rapping whilst serving a prison term in 2005. What began as penning some diary-style lyrics with his cellmate along to a Cormega CD, soon became an obsession, leading to him take part in rap battles out in the exercise yard. Fem says it was his obsessive personality that made him want to be the best at this new talent he’d discovered. Fem began to take his life seriously, away from the trouble and strife of a life of crime. He began volunteering as a support assistant with children and studied for a sociology degree.

On leaving prison in 2005, Fem embarked on a journey of musical self discovery. His first stop was to join with friends and crew-mates South London hip hop crew ‘SN1’, made famous over the past couple of years by the XL recordings rapper Giggs, who Fem grew up with. Fem‘s foray into music produced a handful of releases including ‘The Beginning’, ‘Hollowgrind’, ‘A Brand New Problem’ and ‘345’ volumes 1 and 2. It was ‘It’s You’ that propelled Fem onto radio and out of the confines of South London in 2008.

It was around this time that Fem left SN1 to concentrate on himself as a solo artist. Fem produced ‘Graffiti on the Wall’ with music website GrimeDaily in early 2010, a collection of tracks from some of the UK’s best rap talent including Sway and Bigz, and joined forces with Grime MC Skepta on B.O.S.S.
In Summer 2010 Fem was signed officially to TenTen Records. It was at this time the rapper began recording his debut album ‘Eyes Closed’.
