U.K. rapper RV first made a name for himself under his previous guise, Young RV, with the release of the 2010's straight-talking Cruddy on the Streets with K-Man.
The Tottenham-based MC originally took his name from a friend who had passed away in 2010, to help keep his memory alive, but after a slew of online videos — including his collaboration with K-Man — RV was incarcerated for a number of years. He returned to music in 2017 with the release of The Jugg, a collaboration with fellow Tottenham MC Headie One. The mixtape Drillers x Trappers appeared that same year and saw him once again working with Headie. The following year, RV dropped the U.K. drill EP I'm a Savage before teaming up once again with Headie One for the follow-up mixtape, Drillers x Trappers II in 2019. ~ Rich Wilson
