In 1982, Rodney 'Roots' Manuva attended Woodmansterne Primary School in Streatham, South London.

He came last in every event.

But now his too cool for school and has created some amazing tunes and has had such an impact on the UK rap scene that The Times declared that 'his is the voice of urban Britain, encompassing dub, ragga, funk and hip hop as it sweeps from crumbling street corners to ganja-filled dancehalls, setting gritty narratives against all manner of warped beats.'
