In comparison to other areas of London, the West hasn't exactly been the number one hot spot for talent. But if there was one MC out there at the moment who's on course to buck that trend, then look no further than Scru Face, a.k.a Scru Fizzer. The names originated from when Scru was aged just 13 years old, and whilst looking for something to call himself he thought the name Scru Face would help people identify him. After time passed on, Scru felt that he was out-growing the moniker, but with a whole heap of people already associating his sounds with the name he decided to alter it only slightly to maintain popularity, becoming 'Scru Fizzer'. The name defined Scru better as an artist and even more so as a talented lyricist.
Scru's musical journey started from the young age of 13, where he proved to be blessed with a knack for producing with his own cutting-edge uniqueness and soon after found his productions spreading not only across his own area of West Ealing but all across the streets of London. By 15 Scru had progressed even further, now writing his own music whilst balancing the continued glory that came with producing, showing his varied taste in music with a spectrum of sounds such as Classical, Jazz, Garage, Funky, Grime, Drum and Base, Rock and much more in his catalogue.
Whilst making mass movements in the music scene, Scru also demonstrated a clear interest in acting after studying it in both secondary school and college, leading to him performing in front of a 2000 plus audience for a performance at the Beck theatre. Scru gained a clear boost in confidence from the experience which helped him develop further as an artist, and unfortunately didn't pursue acting any further, although one day he is hoping to get involved once more.
As aforementioned Scru's musical spectrum stretches right from the early jazz days down to the modern era of Grime and Funky, perhaps this is explained by his list of influences which include the likes of Spragga benz , Amy Winehouse, Lupe Fiasco , Andree 3000 & Biggie Smallsanamongst others. An integral part of Scru's music is emotions, and tries hard to transfer a range of his feelings such as pain, confusion, anger and more into all of his work productively. His ability to shine on more than one genre appears more increasingly as of late, with a new fresh and positive outlook towards music !
Following the release of his first mix tape entitled 'My First Steps' many started to recognize that Scruface was on the rise to becoming one of the game's best spitters, with his vigorous and Skippy flows captivating listeners, and has since gone on to walk through the doors of both Kiss FM (with Logan Sama) and BBC 1Xtra (with Tim Westwood/DJ Cameo). The cutting-edge flows and lyricism multiplied Scru's fan base immnesly, and even saw him perform on stage along side some of the scene's best including D Double E, Ghetts, Flirta D and more, tearing down the crowd with his trademark "Shoi Shoi" bars. The mix tape's success also led to him being labelled "Grime at it's most versatile" . He is currently on tour with Kendrick Lamar.
