Stormzy’s surprise performance 2017

His year consisted of selling out tours to charting at number one with his debut album Gang Signs and Prayer, the Wicked Skengman himself came out to perform “Big For Your Boots” and “Cold”.
Lethal B reunites More Fire Crew for performance of “Oi” 2017
Lethal B joined the elite, by picking up arguably the most important award of the night, the Legacy Award. The likes of Kano and Westwood have previously won. This award celebrates the consistent achievements in the industry that just have to be recognized.
He marked the win by gracing the stage to close the Rated Awards ceremony with a sick performance. Bizzle gave us some of his biggest tracks from “Pow” to “Fester Skank”. The highlight though was a reunion performance of “Oi” featuring More Fire Crew’s Ozzie B and Neeko. Remind yourself of the greatness below:
Kano Legacy Performance 2015:
Kano was an easy choice for the Legacy Award in 2015. Kano took to the stage to deliver one of the most iconic Legacy performances to date. Kano navigated his extensive discography adeptly, throughout the set bringing to life a selection of his best cuts.
Undoubtedly, the highlights were an impassioned performance of underground classic “Layer Cake”, and of course giving fans a chance to witness the chemistry between himself and Ghetts.
Twin B pays tribute to Richard Antwi 2016
Business partner and long time friend Twin B took to the stage to give a heartfelt tribute to Richard Antwi who died unexpectedly in February of 2016 of natural causes. He was behind some of the best artists who are around today. Remind yourself what an amazing and inspirational person Richard was below:
Giggs closing performance 2016
Giggs definitely showed that he is one of the greatest with his closing performance in 2016. The energy is through the roof. This performance really ended the evening in a suitable style with a stage invasion from so many people in the scene showing how close the scene is with producers, MCs and videographers all out on stage together. It was another ‘Kanye at the Brits’ moment. Giggs had an incredible year with achievements that we couldn’t have predicted so this performance was a round up of his year.
Big Shaq’s performance 2017
Last but certainly not least, we saw Big Shaq take to the stage last year with “Man’s Not Hot”, arguably one of the biggest tunes of the year. Making his way down the isle we saw everyone with their phones out trying to get clips from his hilarious performance.
Kano’s “Teardrops” Performance 2020
Kano is one of the most important artists of our generation. His powerful performance of “Teardrops” from his 2019 instant classic Hoodies All Summer is easily one of the best Rated Awards Performances to date.
Westwood sending for Charlie Sloth 2015
The first years awards saw Tim Westwood spit fire at Charlie Sloth when presenting ‘Artist of the year’ award. Westwood took offence to Charlie’s speech when he won the award for ‘Best DJ’. Although Westwood didn’t say Charlie’s name in his comeback speech, the whole situation was a major part of the evening with the audience providing their reactions to both of the guys speeches sending shots. A big talking point of the night.
