RIP Derek B

UK old-skool hip-hop pioneer Derek B, who has died at the age of 44, had skills as an MC, DJ and producer.

Sadly he’ll always be known best for The Anfield Rap, which, incredibly, he co-wrote with Craig Johnstone. In amongst all the drivel listen for some famous hooks.

Anyway, thought’s it’s hardly a fitting tribute here is the video in all its glory. To be fair to the lad he managed to get The Beatles, Eric B and Rakim, LL Cool J, Bruce Grobelaar and a John Barnes rap into the same song. Respect.
