Newham Generals featuring Esco Big Bars – I’m A General

• “I’m A General” original music video. Thanks to RiskyRoadz.

8.6 “Excellent Hip Hop / Rap from England”

From their EP “Bag Of Grease” (Dirtee Stank Recordings ‎STANK-013DB) released in March, 2010.

Top notch grime from the East London crew named after Newham General Hospital. This one was released on Dizzee Rascal’s Dirtee Stank label; he had been a long-term fan and was more than delighted to lend his support when he was in a position to do so.

Esco Big Bars (real name Jade Defoe and half-brother of footballer Jermain Defoe) features here, recorded just before he was punched to death by a street thug in April 2009. It was especially tragic with him being a father-of-three.

Like the video caption says, gone but not forgotten, he played his part in these BIG bars.

Heard on Sean Hocking’s May 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.

Available at Amazon.
