Two of Cardiff’s longest serving emcees Johnny B, (Keltech & Johnny B/Son of Brian) and Dregz (Skinz/Higher Learning/DER Collective) have combined to form the boom bap Hip-hop outfit Xenith, along with long time collaborator C-Live (Underdogs/Skinz) and a host of special guest vocalists.

Combining the high energy performance style, acrobatic and well crafted rhyming skills of Johnny B together with the conscious, and intricate flows of Dregz, and the caramel smooth delivery of C-Live, gifts Xenith with a unique sound rarely found in HIp-hop today.

The group are currently working on their first collective and highly anticipated studio album ‘iLL Repute’ which is due for release in summer 2022.

The collaboration between these emcees began on previous Keltech & Johnny B vinyl album releases (The Name, and Rhyme Hungry) a collaboration that has spanned the years from support performances for artists such as Ice-T, to the formation of this latest coalition of artists and emcees, embodying the meaning of the word Xenith.
