Hailing from Bradford, Lunar C has come a long way since becoming the UK’s most infamous battle rapper, following his undefeated run on the UK’s #1 battling league, Don’t Flop. Having initially entering the battle arena as a one-off to promote his music career, Lunar quickly became a fan favourite, winning all of his battles, racking up millions of views and even selling out Ministry of Sound in last return to Don’t Flop versus O’Shea in 2015.
Now with hundreds of thousands of fans across social networks, millions of views on Youtube, having had his videos play listed across TV, his self-released debut EP “Good Times and Dead Brain Cells,” reached #25 on the iTunes chart, #2 in the Hip Hop chart, beaten only by Drake, and the highest new entry in the Official UK Urban weekly chart that week.
Over the years Lunar has worked with the likes of Labrinth, JME, Foreign Beggars, Ocean Wisdom and Sway to name a few. In 2015, international tours in Australia with Oz legend 360 and US rapper Hopsin propelled his name even further beyond the underground UK hip hop fanbase.
Charlie Sloth’s support for Lunar C with the Fire in the Booth series was extended beyond his two solo sessions, by inviting him to the Fire In The Booth Cypher 2015 Cypher, alongside Lady Leshurr, Bonkaz and President T. Lunar’s long-awaited debut album Dirtbrain was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, featuring production from some of the UK’s top producers, including Pete Cannon, Muckaniks and Hashfinger.
