Stig Of The Dump, born in Newcastle, moved to London, released his debut in 2007, and won the EOW championship. He is most famous for his freestyle battles.
“Straight out of the place in your head that filters out the bad things, Stig of the Dump’s arrival to the UK scene is unprecedented, smashing stages with his frank and crude take on the world around him; 2xWorld EOW Challenge Champion of Champions, 2xUK EOW Challenge Champion, UK Battlescars Champion, Jump Off Tag Team Champion and with over 500,000 views of his notorious annihilation of So Solid’s Asher D, Stig is an artist with a huge reputation for no holds barred delivery.
Unafraid of saying the things you wish you could say, Stig is far from just a battle MC, proving his worth on tracks with his critically acclaimed HOMELESS MICROPHONIST EP, which from the day of its release was the number 1 seller on the UK’s biggest Hip Hop mail order site (www.Suspect-Packages.com) until it sold out. Stig then followed up it’s success with his highly anticipated BRAINDEAD 12″ ft. US Indie legend RA The Rugged Man, receiving single of the month in Hip Hop Connection, IDJ & DJ Magazine.
Not simply a master of the spoken word, Stig has also written for the likes of The Guardian, Front, ZOO, One Week To Live, Music Week, Hip Hop Connection and continues to write for HHC Digital.
Having signed to legendary UK independent Lewis Recordings, Stig released his first single in over a year in the form of INSANE, Pete Cannon produced banger, “I Got Game” which was taken from the subsequently released Mood Swings LP, both of which continue to receive huge support from the likes of 1xtra’s Charlie Sloth & Mista Jam, Conspiracy Radio, DigginInTheCrates & many other domestic & international online & FM radio as well as fans, blogs & critics a like.
With a unique style, in a world of sound alikes and clones, Stig is a leader of innovative and original ideas, his own personal brand of self deprecating humour, witty observations and off key subject matter, providing a much needed antidote to the bling addled thuggery infesting the genre today. Cited as none other than Robbie Williams’ favourite rapper, Stig shows an ability to cross over while still maintaining his underground appeal.
Stig’s effortless dexterity see’s him able to jump genres from straight up Hip Hop to Dubstep, Grime, Drum & Bass & Hardcore Rock, things are definitely looking “MAN SIZE” for the future.”
