– About our guest – ( MR.C )
Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late 60’s. He started MCing in London clubs aged only 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio’s Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M.

Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987.
