The soundtrack has been released for a new film about grime and UK rap, Against All Odds.
Centered around the story of MC Active, an artist trying to make it in the early ’00s grime scene, the film documents his ambitions as well as his struggles, and is the first project to be released by the newly-launched Motown Records UK.
Featuring a young cast of actors, alongside the likes of D Double E, Ghetts, Jammer, and Bruza, directors Femi Oyeniran & Nicky Walker have joined forces LINK UP TV to bring back legendary British grime satellite channel, Channel U, for the film’s premiere, and have shared the soundtrack ahead of the film’s release on Friday 20th November.
Featuring D Double, Capo Lee, Flowdan, Novelist and Tempa T, the soundtrack captures the sound of the Channel U generation, with old school grime instrumentals and cutting bars.
