Despite starting his career as an MC at the very young age of 12, Devlin found himself as a core member of The Movement, one of the biggest crews in Grime, and the O.T Crew, the Dagenham-based collective that inspired Devlin to MC in the first place, and eventually became regarded as one of the standout MCs of the mid-2000’s, dropping multiple monumental freestyles (including his Fire In The Booth which amassed over 5 million views) and releasing five full-length albums.

Regarded by many as one of the best MCs to ever touch the mic in Grime, Devlin‘s career has cemented him as a legend in the UK Music scene forever.
