so solid crew

featuring: military fitness

so solid crew are a uk garage and hip hop ground from the london underground scene. “21 seconds” got them to number one in the uk. so solid have got their roots in winstanley estate in battersea, south london. the 25 strong crew consists of 24 guys and one girl, lisa maffia. their sound combines hip-hop, soul and garage. their lyrics tell of experiences of life in the london ghetto. the two front men, megaman and romeo, started up 'so solid ltd', which includes a record label, a pr company and pirate radio station delight fm. the so solid guys do not like the army, fitness though is high on their list. in 1999, the british military fitness training was founded by two ex-army officers. they offer a real military training experience in various parks across london for people, who do not cherish the idea of sweaty gyms. the fitness organisation has since expanded to over 100 venues in the uk. one session in richmond park was visited by the queen during her diamond jubilee tour in 2012. the classes are run anywhere in london from hyde park, battersea park to finsbury park. so solid released the single 'since you went away' in 2010.
