British rappers Rizzle Kicks have rekindled the John Terry race row by mocking his "black friends" in their new single.
Rizzle Kicks, a Brighton-based duo comprised of Jordan 'Rizzle' Stephens and Harley 'Sylvester' Alexander-Sule (pictured below), have released a track called ‘Lost Generation’.
While poking fun at artists who pay for Youtube hits, Jordan raps "when I heard people buy views, I was more confused than all John Terry’s black friends".
It’s hardly 'Fight the Power', but clearly references Terry’s infamous racial insult at former QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
Terry was fined £220,000, stripped of the England captaincy and banned for four matches after being caught on camera directing the words "f***ing black c***" at Ferdinand.
Chelsea fans continued to support their skipper, turning their anger towards Ferdinand and his brother Rio, but Terry was widely reviled for the incident, which he claimed was merely a response to Anton accusing him of having used the racial slur.
Later, Rio was fined £45,000 for re-tweeting a comment that described Ashley Cole – a Chelsea team-mate and friend of Terry’s – as a "choc ice". Cole is mixed-race.
