It’s how he went from trainee youth worker to one of grime’s biggest and brightest talents, with his own primetime TV show and unmistakable pop cultural footprint. It’s how Big Zuu, has pushed grime forward into an empowering and eclectic new terrain and over the course of releases beloved by mainstream radio listeners and sweaty basement ravers alike, amassed massive critical acclaim along the way.
Following singles, ‘Move Right ft. Drizilik’ - an ode to his Sierra Leonean heritage - and recent hit ‘Doing Alright’ with collaborator Capo Lee - Zuu’s directorial debut; ‘Great To Be’, sets a precedent for Big Zuu’s long-awaited, debut album.
Teaming-up once again with beatmaker SOULS, his triumphant new offering is imbued with the passionate, thought-provoking parlance and top tier bars synonymous with the west-london MC. ‘Great To Be’, is an emotional showcase of Big Zuu’s vocal talent and weaves seamlessly between his energetic cadence and sung choruses, offset by evocative cinematic strings.
