Coming straight out of Newport The GLC are officially Britain’s biggest rap group. Known 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 from GLC was working on in the "studio". Adam Hussain, Billy Webb, Mystkal, 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 ever 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 and as still selling out venues across the UK. To date The GLC have released 20 albums… and amazingly none of them have died yet. You knows it!
‘It's the tour the GLC have been counting down to for 20 years. Adam Hussain, Eggsy, Rhys from GLC, Mike Balls, Graham the Bear, Billy Webb, DJ Killer Tomato, Leeroy Fashions and a cast of part time members are going back on tour and this time it's big. GLC have been on tour before, one just to pay the tax man, then there was one to pay off Newport's Mr Big but GLC have always been dreaming of the 20th anniversary tour and finally they have made it! You don't see So Solid Crew doing a 20th anniversary tour do you, where is Lisa Mafia now? Not doing a 20th anniversary tour, that's where. So, It's time to buy a new tracksuit and dust off your gold chain. Get involved and get smashed, responsibly coz it's going to be well safe. With high cholesterol and heart conditions the GLC have never been more ready to tour.’ Goldie Lookin’ Chain.
