LETHAL Bizzle is a well known British grime artist.
He’s hit the headlines after starting a feud with Chris and Kem – here’s what we know about him…
Who is Lethal Bizzle?
Maxwell Owusu Ansah, 33, was born September 14, 1984 and is known by his stage name Lethal Bizzle.
He is an English rapper and actor from Walthamstow, London.
He emerged in 2002 as a grime MC as part of More Fire Crew, with their grime single Oi! charting in the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart.

What’s Lethal Bizzle’s Leave It Yeah feud with Chris and Kem?
Lethal Bizzle has demanded Love Island stars Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay pay him after they used his phrase without his permission in their new rap single Little Bit Leave It.
The 33-year-old grime legend – who has been associated with the famous line “leave it” after he dropped his single Leave It Yeah in 2011 – is furious with the reality duo after they weaved his catchphrase into their track without crediting him.
Bizzle released a video on Twitter expressing how annoyed he was over the rap.
He said: “You couldn’t leave me alone init. Kem and his other brother – I dunno what his name is – Ross, you took my phrase fam. Cool, I want everyone to use my phrase.
“Everyone knows I make up words but when you want to go and do a song and make money from them then I have a problem with that.
“So we need to have a conversation. Shabs – the guy who signed the record – I know him very well. I’m a very reasonable person so let’s just get this sorted out before it goes anywhere else because it doesn’t need to go anywhere else.
“I wasn’t even f***ing bothered about it to be honest, it was the people that made me realise: ‘Yo, Biz, are you getting a percentage out of that?’ And I sat down and I thought: ‘Hang on a minute, I should be getting a percentage out of this, shouldn’t I?’ ”
The Go Hard hitmaker insists he doesn’t “need the money” but it’s the “principle.”
What’s Lethal Bizzle net worth?
Lethal Bizzle has amassed a small fortune during his career.
He is said to be worth almost a £1million.
This will be through record sales.
