Seems like London is not the only city that plays host to some of the country’s most talented lyricists; as Bradford born Lunar C gained his recognition through an impressive winning streak, battling in the infamous UK rap battle league Don’t Flop in 2010 and 2011.
Last September is all quite promising from Lunar C as he releases a brand new EP, the follow up to 2012’s ‘Sewer Side Sex’ EP which has had over 30,000 downloads to date – titled Good Times and Dead Brain Cells. A few weeks ago Lunar C released the artwork to this EP via Twitter, revealing an image of the MC wearing a ‘helicopter hat’ and conveying a very humorous look across his face. The artwork alone received such immense support from fans alike, setting the bar sky high for an incredible body of music to come from the EP.
Lunar C won trophies commending his efforts within Don’t Flop for Best Newcomer and Performance of the Year. He intelligently retired from the game on a high as he takes the title of being undefeated with no signs of ever losing a rap battle. Lunar C also became the highest viewed battler for that period leading him to collaborate with the likes of; Labrinth, JME, Dot Rotten, Foreign Beggars and Rizzle Kicks. Mic Righteous and Scrufizzer are also amongst the collaborations Lunar C has encountered and they both feature on the ‘Good Times and Dead Brain Cells EP. Support has also been received across the airwaves from BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra DJ’s Charlie Sloth, MistaJam, Semtex and Seani B.
With a daily increasing fan base of at least 100,000 fans across various social networks, there is no doubt that Lunar C is one to watch out for. A recently released second track with Labrinth means that Lunar C is again receiving spins on BBC Radio 1Xtra although aside of radio he has also been busy showing off his live show efforts including headlining Leeds 02 Academy, performing alongside Sway, Kano and K-
