Frisco is a British MC and Rapper working predominantly within the Grime Music Scene. Based in North London, he is a member of the Grime collective Boy Better Know and is considered a founder of TMT (other members are Cell 22, Presto & Danny B). Frisco is also affiliated with Alwayz Recording, whom is associated with Chipmunk.
Frisco first gained recognition in 2005 for his appearance in the “Private Caller” video alongside fellow North London Grime MC’s JME, Cookie, President T, Scorcher, Cell 22, Dimples, Danny B and Skepta, who also produced the song. Frisco got himself more attention when he badmouthed Grime creator Wiley in a song. To settle their differences Frisco and Wiley took part in a rap battle opposing each other, which Frisco subsequently won. Frisco’s winning line is believed to have been “Roll Deep so deep ‘n’ ting but Roll Deep so cheap they don’t bling”.
Frisco went on to release his first mixtape (a move that inspired the mixtape trend in the Grime scene) called Murda Music Volume 1, followed shortly by “Volume 2″.
Frisco took a one-year hiatus to spend time with his son, which he often mentions in various recordings. However, he was not completely inactive during this time, still doing minor music work.
In his 2006 return, Frisco followed up his two previous mixtapes with “Back 2 Da Lab Volume 1″, which was very successful. In the same year Frisco also battled ‘Scorcher’ of the collective ‘The Movement’ and formerly of ‘Cold Blooded’ on JME’s ‘Mayhem’ beat due to so called Street Politics. In a song, Scorcher accused Frisco of abandoning Wretch 32 and mocking Skepta and Wiley before he joined Boy Better Know. Frisco denied this, and replied with a song, which detailed the story of Scorcher being mugged for his Motorbike keys. The feud has
ended with both MC’s, as part of their respective grime crews working together on the “Fuckin with the Team” remix.
In early 2008, his fifth mixtape overall was released ‘Peng Food’, again considerably successful, but rare, outside of www.ukrecordshop.com , the mixtape can only be found in popular underground record stores around East London.
In 2013 Frisco joined the ever-growing Soko Records Family, by signing a record deal with them. He is currently working his first Soko release.
