NSG. It’s a simple yet vast acronym, seeping with potential.“It’s a lifestyle, a movement,” the group say. At first it stood for No Sleep Gang, then Non Stop Grinding. At the moment it means Never Stop Growing but that could change too. As member Kruddz explains, that’s why they refer to the name’smeaning as a lifestyle – it echoes what’s happening to NSG in the present moment. Past and present names aside, the group reflects the most exciting components of the current UK music scene: a lively diasporic afro bashment sound and a larger-than-life personality, all rolled into one six member group. Comprised of members Kruddz, Mxjib, Mojo, OGD, Dope and Papii Abz, they’ve been bubbling under the crest of producer Jae5 and Mercury Nominated artist J Hus since before either of those acts broke, slowly crafting their sound together.
