Boy Better Know Member Solo 45 Charged With 29 Counts of Rape
Boy Better Know's Solo 45 is in some serious trouble. According to the BBC, the member of the North London-based rap crew has been charged with 29 counts of rape after three new people made allegations against him.
Solo, born Andy Anokye, had previously been charged with two counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment and another charge for "causing actual bodily harm." Solo pleaded not guilty to the earlier charges, and he will now stand trial on April, 18, 2018.
Thirty-one-year-old Solo 45 got his first taste of major fame when he dropped his 2014 song, "Feed Em to the Lions." He's been a member of Boy Better Know since 2006, and in that time, the label's gone on to do big things.
Boy Better Know is a record label and rap collective founded by Skepta, who took home the 2016 Mercury Prize for his Konnichiwa album. The label is one Drake, Skepta's good friend, said he was affiliated with back in 2016.
