âOne of the most original & in your face performers of our generation, with an unparalleled live show that is bursting with energy.

Fuck You Music at itâs very bestâ â Andy Newman (MusicManReview)

Unafraid of saying the things you wish you could say, Stig is far from just a battle MC, proving his worth on tracks with his critically acclaimed HOMELESS MICROPHONIST EP, which from the day of its release was the number 1 seller on the UKâs biggest Hip Hop mail order site (www.Suspect-Packages.com) until it sold out. Stig then followed up itâs success with his highly anticipated BRAINDEAD 12â³ ft. US Indie legend RA The Rugged Man, receiving single of the month in Hip Hop Connection, IDJ & DJ Magazine.
