His enthusiasm took him to begin demonstrating his talent at school, & with friends from his local area. It was at this stage, that Rapid decided to pursue a career in music & at the age of 15, co- founded the critically acclaimed Garage/Grime Collective ‘Ruff Sqwad’ along with crew members Slix & Tinchy Stryder. Rapid then went on to produce classic Ruff Sqwad hits ‘Tings In Boots’ & ‘Underground’, and executive produced both “Guns & Roses Vol.1 & 2”, selling over 20,000 units on the underground circuit. This led to his works being signed by Major Labels ‘Universal’ & ‘679 recording’s respectively.
His quality of production subsequently skyrocketed his rise in reputation & profile which has since led to him working with artist’s Kano, Duurty Goodz & producing the Underground smash “Top 3 Selected” for Ghetto. Other massive production credits include “Xtra”, “I’m from a place where” (Ruff Squad) & “Who Am I” (Seb Zero). At present Rapid is involved with several new projects, having four productions included on Tinchy Stryder’s recent release “Star In the Hood” album and is currently working with Mobo Award Winning & Platinum Selling artist Asher D, formerly of So Solid Crew. Rapid is also putting the finishing touches to his new album, which is scheduled for a summer 2008 release.
