As Big Zuu teams up again with Capo Lee for searing new single ‘Doing Alright’ we caught up with him for a quick chat.

Earlier this year the pair combined forces for their Royal Rumble mixtape, and ‘Doing Alright’ sees both Big Zuu and Capo Lee continue to flex their formidable talent. An energetic fusion of skittering, sharp grime beats and effortlessly quick-witted bars, the track also features ZDot and Krunchie on beats making for a truly unstoppable crew.

‘Doing Alright’ follows on from the recent announcement of season 2 of his TV show Big Zuu’s Big Eats and continues to prove Big Zuu as a rapidly rising grime mainstay and dextrous creative force.
