More Fire Crew was an East London-based grime crew from Waltham Forest, and was one of the first crews in the grime scene.

The crew was formed when Ozzie B and Lethal Bizzle went to secondary school together. Ozzie and Lethal soon joined up with their friend Shaunie B, who was a DJ on Amy FM, and formed a crew called the 'Cream Team'. Meanwhile, More Fire's third prospective member Neeko was in a sound engineering training programme. All three would join up when Ozzie left the Cream Team in the summer of 2000 for the Mad Dog Crew and Neeko, also a Mad Dog member, was invited to guest emcee on Amy FM by Shaunie B. This led to them hooking up with Lethal, who had become a resident MC at the same station, then they formed the More Fire Crew.

They are most known for their track "Oi!" in 2002 which reached #7 in UK Single Chart.[1 ] In 2002 their first album, More Fire Crew CV, was released, and they contributed a cover of Gabrielle's "Dreams" to the album NME & Warchild Presents 1 Love.[2] In the same year they were dropped by their record label, with Lethal setting up his own eponymous record label and going on to a successful solo career.[3]

In 2005, Neeko left, with Ozzie B and Lethal Bizzle continuing as Fire Camp,[4] In May 2007, Lethal Bizzle stated that there would be no further new material from More Fire Crew.[4]
