When an MC makes their debut on Lord Of The Mics, you know they’re set for good things. When an MC makes their debut on Lord of The Mic’s 10-year anniversary compilation, they could well be set for greatness. That’s exactly where we first heard Fusion back in 2015, spraying fire all over his first single ‘Newham.’ Not long after, Ghetts jumped on the remix, and less than a year later he was riding high from his first EP. In fact, the only thing quicker than Fusion’s rise might be his flow.

Packed with word play and lyrical dexterity, Fusion’s bars move at lightning pace, recalling the likes of Dizzee Rascal. Premiering on Notion, his new single ‘For The Crime’ is an anti anthem with Fusion venting his frustrations with the police, the grime scene and declaring his new direction. It’s a high energy track with nods to the old school in the production but with enough of a new approach to feel fresh. It’s an end of summer banger if ever there was one. Check out the video below.
