N-Dubz: Against All Odds (book)


Over the past year homegrown hip-hop sensation N-Dubz have morphed from an underground phenomenon to a commercial monster. Take a trip inside the N-Dubz world of catchy lyrics, street smart style and funky beats and discover the real story of the band everyone's talking about. Although still only in their early 20s, N-Dubz are anything but an overnight sensation. The band was born some eight years ago, in one of the roughest parts of Camden. Still in school and barely into their teens, cousins Dappy and Tulisa met third member Fazer and set about making their first beats. Drawing inspiration from the then booming UK garage scene, the charismatic trio slowly honed their sound, developing their unique style for which they have now become known and loved. Living proof that you don't need to take part in a reality TV show to make it in the music industry, Dappy, Tulisa and Fazer have trodden a long and rocky road on their quest to become pop superstars. Here, for the first time, they will reveal all about their years of hard work and perserverance. From being snapped up by Polydor and scoring their first top 20 hit, to being thrown into personal turmoil following the tragic death of Dappy's father and the band's devoted manager Uncle B. Packed full of fascinating stories and hundreds of never-before-seen photographs of the band, including exclusive backstage shots and personal family snaps, this book will give a unique insight into the N-Dubz can-do way of mind. Customers will also get access to exclusive audio and video content from the band. The band transcended all expectations with their debut album Uncle B, selling over 500,000 copies in the UK alone and spawning six hit singles. Now, with a No. 1 single, three MOBO Awards, plus a critically acclaimed sell out UK tour under their belts, they are finally being given the recognition that they deserve. With their second album going platinum within a month of being released, their second tour scheduled for April, and their sights firmly set on breaking the US as well, 2010 looks set to be the year of N-Dubz!
