Quotes About Leddie And Smoggy

"This Middlesborough duo are another in a line of acts bringing a social awareness back to UK Hip Hop. Throughout this process we’ve seen a lot of issues-based Urban tunes but this one hit the mark for us for it’s sheer exuberance and passion" - MTV Brand New (On Equals)

"A duo that consists of a female & male MC. Leddie & Smoggy are a rap collective that takes us back to the early beginnings of Hip Hop; when people rapped about issues that mattered to them. Days when rap was people’s way of expressing their feeling and emotions. Their track ‘Equals’ is very hard-hitting and yet it’s reminds us of what music use to be about. We love that fact that they’re bringing old’ skool to the new generation" - (1613) New Wave District

"What can I say about Leddie and Smoggy? Well the only thing that upsets me about the 'Calm Before the Storm' mixtape is the fact I had to wait so long for it!! They not only have a world of skill but also more integrity, honesty and heart than any artist in the UK scene today. Once again...Peoples Army Salute!!" - Genesis Elijah

"Her conscious mind, unbeatable flow, intellectual observations and magnetic personality all make her one of the top female MCs to spit on this little Island we call Britain in a long, long time." - Nino @ BritishHipHop.com

"Leddie and Smoggy is a female/male hip hip duo from Boro that draw their influences from the UK and the local rather than New York. They shy away from the commercial and instead home in on the real issues. There is plenty of local and wider political confrontation and razor sharp comment in their alliteration and breakneck delivery. Very impressive" - Robert Nichols

"Leddie and Smoggy are every inch Teesside and their urban music is now starting to hit targets further afield around the UK - it certainly did at the conference. They give the commercial hip-hop sounds a wide berth and instead plough their own furrow - or furrows, because Leddie's alliteration is quite different to Smoggy's machine gun etiquette rap. They blend well, however, and that is the trick. I'm delighted to report that things could be really starting to take off for the male/female duo who are suddenly being talked about widely in music circles. The forthcoming album might just put them (and Teesside) on the map." - Robert Nichols

"peace keep doin ur thing hip hop? lives ..." - Scorzayzee

"Wierdest Hip Hop combo ever, but it f*cking works. If you don’t trust me, I’ll give you some audio proof tom
