Foreign Beggars

Foreign Beggars are a critically acclaimed British hip hop and Grime group based in London. Voted “Best Group” and winners of “Best single” at the Lyric Pad Hip hop awards 2005, the group consists of MCs Orifice Vulgatron and Metropolis, DagNabbit and DJ Nonames.

Their sound is pretty fresh and they have their finger knuckle deep on the pulse of people who want something gritty, playful and inventive.

They first appeared on the scene in 2003 with their debut LP Asylum Speakers (on their own Dented Records label). The group’s live show combines Orifice’s raps with beatboxing, turntablism, improvisation, and freestyles. They often appear with guest performers including Dr. Syntax, Skinnyman, Stig of the Dump, Foz, Skrein,Dubbledge, and noted beatboxer Shlomo.

The crew have released several 12″s and EPs and a debut LP, Asylum Speakers. Shlomo appears on Björk’s album Medulla and NoNames contributed to Damon Albarn’sGorillaz project.
