Coming straight out of Newport The GLC are officially Britains biggest rap group.
Know for classics like “Guns don’t kill people rappers do” and “Your mother’s got a penis”, The GLC started almost by accident around the turn of the century with Eggsy’s impromptu rap about his tracksuit over a serious piece of music Rhys was working on in the studio.
Adam Hussain, Billy Webb, Mystkal, the Maggot, 2hats and Mike Balls convinced Rhys to record the rap.
Fuelled by Lambrini, fags, Chicken Tikka Massala and weed they all took to the mic and The GLC’s first album “Don’t Blame the Chain” was born.
And so it began, the journey which has so far seen The GLC rise to the top of the charts, perform around the world and at every major festival in the Western Hemisphere and make millions of people laugh along the way.
Now many years since that first rap about Eggsy’s tracksuit, the boys are still keeping it real in the rap game and hold the title of the most successful UK rap act ever.
To date The GLC have released 18 albums… and amazingly none of them have died yet. You knows it!
RHYS and EGGSY from Goldie Lookin Chain are possibly the second best DJ MC act to have come out of Wales ever. FACT!
Know for Chart hits like “Guns Don’t Kill People Rappers Do” and “Your Mother’s Got A Penis” The GLC are a party band and have been playing their brand of body popping Hip Hop at gigs and festivals up and down the UK since 2004 and are still banging out the tunes and viral videos.
“As DJ and MC we really do bring the party and there is always a prize for the best dancer”, says GLC’s Eggsy.
“We get everyone moving on the dance floor from the students about to fail their first year to the old guy in the Pink Floyd T shirt. When we play the tunes and they put the smoke machine on the crowd always go wild“, adds Rhys from GLC.
RHYS and EGGSY (the two founding members) have been DJ across the UK for almost as long as the band has been going and have worked on radio (XFM, Radio Wales), and presented and appeared on TV shows together and currently provide the voices in between the shows on MTV weekday evenings.
RHYS and EGGYS play old school Hip Hop and party tunes and the vibe is always banging, perfect for parties, raves, student nights or festivals. You knows it.
