UK Grime/Rap Group Foreign Beggars Splitting Up After 17 Years

After 17 years, the UK grime/rap group Foreign Beggars has made the decision to go their separate ways.


Foreign Beggars, along with Virus Syndicate, has been one of the most iconic grime rappers in dance music, gaining features on tracks with Black Sun Empire, Alix Perez, Dirtyphonics, Flux Pavilion, Noisia, FuntCase, Skrillex, Snails, Trolley Snatcha, and more. Their collaborative project with Noisia, I Am Legion, also spawned legendary tracks like “Make Those Move” and “Choosing for You.”

Members Orifice Vulgatron, Metropolis, and DJ Nonames posted the announcement today across social media. Foreign Beggars have released seven studio albums since 2003, and will release one more before the end of the year, their final record.

See their full statement below.

Dear friends and family, it’s with a heavy heart that we announce that This will be the final stretch for Foreign Beggars.. We are planning to release one final record later this year and 31st Dec 2019 will be the last ever show… This year will be the last chance to come see us live and we’ll be bringing out as many guests as we can to make em extra special.

It’s been an incredible ride and so many dreams and life achievements unlocked, as sad as it may seem, after 17 years on this journey we feel we need to take some time as we prepare for new chapters in our individual stories.

Thank you for making our dreams come true and keeping us alive through this wonderful thing called music!

If anyone wants to book a show anywhere in the world now is the time to do so!!!

All the love Beggar Fam!!
