Scrufizzer, a member of the production group Funkystepz, released his first mixtape entitled My First Steps in 2007. With support ranging from Zane Lowe and Annie Mac to Dizzee Rascal, Ed Sheeran and Wiley, Scrufizzer has gone on to perform with top names, including Wiley and DJ Cameo as well as opening for Kendrick Lamar in shows across the UK. BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ, DJ Cameo, joined the Kendrick Lamar tour as Scrufizzer's DJ, and has called Scrufizzer his protégé. In a January 2013 interview, Rock Feedback claimed Scrufizzer to have "the quickest flow in the game right now, and with it, Scrufizzer has become one of the most exciting prospects in the grimescene."
Scrufizzer has appeared on tracks of high-profile artists, including "Guts N' Glory" by Dizzee Rascal, "Werkin Girls" by Angel Haze, "Kingpin" by DJ Friction & Skream, M. J. Cole's "Southern Electric", and Loadstar's "Do You Feel Me". Scrufizzer also featured on Toddla T & Cleo Sol's "Code to Crack" which received its first radio play by MistaJam. He appeared on Lunar C's track "Back on the Step" alongside Mic Righteous and on Danny Brown's 2013 album Old. Other collaborations include DJ Cameo alongside Maxsta, Kozzie and Dot Rotten.
With his trademark "fizzy flow", Scrufizzer combines rap with modern grime, which led The Guardian to name him one of the "ones to watch in 2013".
Scrufizzer's debut single "Rap Rave" was released on 28 January 2013 on Stay Fizzy Records/Ministry of Sound. The Independent said that Scrufizzer "might, perhaps be considered one of the highest rated young MCs to be part of this new wave." "Rap Rave", produced by Paperbwoy, shows off Scrufizzer's distinct 'fizzy flow' and spitting techniques. In early 2013, BBC 1xtra's Nick Bright reckoned that Scrufizzer was the fastest spitter in the UK.
On 21 May 2013, Scrufizzer signed with UK label Black Butter Records via Polydor Records, and released the single "Kick It" in October 2013. The song charted at number 43 on the UK Singles Chart. The video for "Kick It" was produced by Zed Bias, directed by Mister Whitmore and released in August 2013. It was filmed in LA and features attractive girls all in the same dress, an homage to the Robert Palmer video for "Addicted to Love".
Scrufizzer appeared on the bill of many festivals during the summer of 2013, including FSTVL, Friday at London's Lovebox Festival, Global Gathering and the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage Reading and Leeds Festival. He also performed at a Rudimental headline show at "Black Butter Records presents at Ibiza Rocks", and jumped on DJ Friction's set with a special performance of "Kingpin" and a freestyle at Creamfields and SW4 Festivals.
Feud with Ghetts
After Scrufizzer released "Oh No (Dun Kno Already Remix)", a refix of the So Solid Crew track inspired by East London MC Ghetts' 2016 single "You Dun Know Already", Ghetts took offence at the lack of credit given to him for the creative vision. On "You Dun Know Already (Remix)", Ghetts' verse served as a diss track directed at Scrufizzer. Scrufizzer responded to this with the track "I Don't Believe You (Megaman Hat)", claiming that he gave Ghetts due credit but would be willing to clash. Ghetts, however, dismissed the beef at this point.
