Having fortified his name storming through the hip-hop battle rap circuit, 23 year old East London native Professor Green's rise to fame has been a wild journey. When Professor Green was just 18 he started rapping as an MC winning over 100 battles, and claimed his status as the worlds 2nd best MC in the Power Summit 50k battle in the Bahamas. He has broken a few records since beginning his career, including becoming the first rapper to win The Jump Off 7 weeks in a row, completing the feat twice. He is still the only participant to have done this. He is known for his quick-witted and offensive style of battle-rapping, his humourous style is always well-received by the audience.
