Derek B R.I.P.

Earlier this week, Hip Hop lost yet another artist. UK rapper Derek Boland suffered a heart attack and passed away on the 16th Novemeber.

He started in the game as a DJ, rocking on then pirate station Kiss FM.

One of his first singles was “Rock The Beat”, which he co-produced.

In 1998 he reached number 16 in the UK pop charts with “Bad Young Brother”. He also produced for acts like the Cookie Crew and he wrote one track that I grew up listening to again and again in my house, “Anfield Rap”.

Hip Hop has lost a pioneer and my thoughts are with his friends and family.
