British rappers So Solid Crew are intent on proving their hardcore credentials - by filming their new video in war-torn Iraq.

The 21 SECONDS garage collective - who's latest album 2ND VERSE only made it to an embarrassing 70 in the British charts - want to wear full army regalia for the promo accompanying tune ANGRY BEATZ, after likening themselves to disposed Afghani regime THE TALIBAN in recent interviews.

MC ROMEO says, "It's about getting things off our chests so the video needs to be quite aggressive.

"But it'll be a big change from filming in (West London district) Ladbroke Grove."
