50 Sniffs have announced they are to support Welsh comedy rap group Goldie Lookin Chain on their upcoming tour.
The Boston parody rappers will play a tour date in Sheffield alongside the controversial group who had a UK number three hit with ‘Guns Don’t Kill People Rappers Do’.
The trio of Fiddy, Dizzle and Kizzle - aka Jimmy May, David Vaughan and Jake Kelly - have gained a huge online following since releasing two comedy songs on Youtube this year. One is a risqué look at life in Boston, the other about a daytrip to Skegness.
Jimmy told The Standard: “It’s going to be amazing to support them and we’re going to work hard to prepare a few new songs for the gig.”
Their cheeky summer anthem Fish, Chips and Donkey Ridez attracted more than 120,000 views on Youtube and saw the lads appear on TV and radio around the county.
50 Sniffs’ songs parody those of artists such as 50 Cent, Nicky Minaj, Jay-Z and Kanye West, re-writing the lyrics to the popular tunes.
But as reported in The Standard last month, ‘Sniffs next ambition is to get an original song in the UK charts - and playing with a fellow comedy rap group who have already achieved just that is a big opportunity for the local lads.
“This is definitely exciting,” Jimmy added. “Myself and Dave have already been working on new bits - with Dave producing the beats and melodies and me writing the lyrics.”
The Sheffield gig will take place at live music venue Corporation on November 7.
