Biography

A young hustler with undeniable talent who takes scenarios from his gritty reality and turns them into razor sharp lyrics and underground anthems. Known more for his flamboyant nature and lavish spending Pound Sterling is the epitome of a London hustler. Originally planning to remain behind the scenes in the music industry and manouver as a businessman rather than an artist. He set up his own studio and record label with his long time friend Bones Mack and cousin Don Nicholas. After observing the U.K. rap scene for a year from behind his desk he decided to step into the vocal booth. He felt most rappers were frauds and were rapping about lifestyles they knew nothing about and things they had never experienced. So in January 2004 Pound Sterling and his affiliates released their first mix cd “Beat Robbery Volume One.” A classic underground hip-hop disc on which they put down an uncompromising, uncut account of how they were living and things they had experienced. After an incredible response they had no hesitation in bringing out the sequel Beat Robbery Volume Two in July 2004 and then Volume Three in December 2004. A movement had begun.

Whilst recording the mix cds Pound Sterling had also been recording the bulk of his debut album “Money Before Music.” After collecting beats from several producers across the U.K. He recorded twelve tracks in two weeks.
