The Kersal Massive is a “band” formed of 3 kids who live in Kersal, a district inside the City of Salford in North West England. This video clip is of the so-called band performing a gangsta rap, which was originally sent in to the recording company 679 Recordings in order to win a Kano BMX bike. The video of them rapping was somehow found by Youtube user Paoloray and posted to Youtube in March of 2006, where it currently has more than 500,000 views.
