Sitter in 1 portrait
Forest Gate born Darren Dixon, known professionally as D Double E, is an MC who shaped his distinctive tone by rising through the ranks of London's jungle scene in the 90s. He was part of the early grime collective N.A.S.T.Y, before establishing the group Newham Generals. In 2018 he released his debut album Jackuum! on his own label, Bluku Bluku Music. Fellow MC Skepta  named him as the ‘greatest of all time’, and Dizzee Rascal said he was one of the artists who inspired him to start MCing.
