Charlie came up through Londons pirate radio and club world, earning himself a solid reputation as an ever-inventive, entertaining MC in both the UK garage and hip hop scenes. He hosts a weekly show on BBC Radio 1Xtra and is also the host for the Rap show on BBC Radio 1.

Back in 2007 he began to make and release his own records, as well as his own videos. His real breakthrough moment came when he decided to take the one man band approach to its logical conclusion, recording the ups and downs of the life of an independent British rap artist with his own weekly online show, Being Charlie Sloth. The show was an instant hit and was picked up by World Star Hip Hop, the US based hip hop video site where it was soon averaging over a million hits a week. Charlie is a self-made artist for the new media generation.
