Great Scott is made up of 2 emcess; Chris and Jacob (Jaws) from a Derbyshire town called Burton on Trent. The duo began making music together in 2011 after years of being solo artists. Both rappers have a love of funk, soul and old school hip hop and through this, their style was born.
They have always made very honest music, whether it’s about being broke or troubles with the opposite sex.
After putting a few songs together, they very quickly caught the attention of BBC introducing who pushed them to Radio1 and 1xtra with their single “I Need Some Money”. The track was playlisted on 1xtra getting spins from the legendary DJ’s such as Trevor Nelson and played on the Radio1 review show getting props from the likes of Professor Green. This attention lead them to play high profile shows and festivals festivals with big acts like The Wombats, Ghostpoet and Roots Manuva.
