N-Dubz are a MOBO award winning hip hop group from London, based around Camden Town. They were previously signed to Polydor Records before joining All Around the World Records. They have had three charting singles on the UK Singles Chart.
All of the members of N-Dubz attended school in St John's Wood (Quintin Kynaston School), and came together as a group under the management of Dino Contostavlos's father, Byron Contostavlos (formerly of Mungo Jerry), who died on April 12, 2007. Members Dino (Dappy) and Tula (Tulisa) are cousins. Each appeared on Channel 4's Dubplate Drama after they began to get noticed as a group. Performing as the Lickle Rinsers Crew, they released the singles "Bad Man Riddim" and "Life Is Getting Sicker by the Day", which became hits on English pirate radio stations. Their 2006 self-released single, "I Swear", won them their first mainstream notice, but it wasn't until 2007's "Feva Las Vegas" (also self-released) that the group dented the UK charts, peaking at #57.
