Our core goal.
The Legacy Project
The Hyper D Legacy Project was set up in September 2017 to continue building the legacy of the late great Stevie Hyper D. The first step in the project was launching the official Hyper D merchandise, which was created under the moniker Original Junglist Solder.
The next step launching in July 2018 is the announcement of the official documentary film around the late great MC. The film entitled 'The Hidden Influence' will tell the story of how Stevie influenced a generation of British artists.
All profits from the sale of the T-shirts and official merchandise will go into the production of the film, with proceeds and profit raised off the back of the film going back into The Hyper D Legacy Project and back to the family.
The Hidden Influence
The official feature length documentary, coming in 2024.

Credits & Thanks
I would personally like to give eternal gratitude to Darrell for letting me be so close to this story and giving me the opportunity to be part of the legacy. Stevie Hyper D remains to this day, the reason why I do what I do. One of the greatest MCs of all time, from any genre. I would also like to say thank you to Nicky Blackmarket for giving his blessing to the film, without Nicky & Hyper D back in the 90s we would not be sitting here. Huge shout to Gav & Ash from THTC for believing in the vision and supporting it with the Original Junglist Soldier clothing range. Finally, big thanks to Navigator, Skibadee, Fatman D, Foreign Beggars, Bionic from London Posse, David Boomah and T.R.A.C for taking part in the THTC photo shoot. Personal thanks to David Skilling on the PR, Lee Ellwood, Greg Whyte for the dope design, Tom, Roan, Jed & Ivory TV for breathing life into the film and all who have supported creatively since we embarked on this journey in 2012.
