East London rapper Guvna B has released West Ham-inspired song ‘Massive’, with all proceeds going to Isla Caton, a young hammers fan battling a rare form of cancer.
After going viral for performing the freestyle live on Sky Sports News earlier this week, Guvna B, real name Isaac Charles Borquaye, vowed to turn it into a full studio release later this week.

He said: ‘Right, we were only messing about with the lil rap ting on Sky Sports but after reading your messages, I’ll be putting out a studio version of the song shortly and donating all proceeds to @islasfight.’
Less than 48 hours later, ‘Massive’ has been released on all major music platforms, and features nods to some of West Ham’s biggest stars including Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio.
Guvna B also announced that all proceeds made from the single will be donated to Isla Caton, a young West Ham fan who has been battling a rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma for five years.

Since Isla’s diagnosis, her mother Nicola has been at the forefront of the family’s fundraising efforts, with more than £85,000 having already been raised on the family’s JustGiving page in an attempt ‘to give Isla as much happiness as humanly possible’.
Right then Wednesday I did a freestyle on @SkySportsNews about @WestHam as a joke. By Thursday it’s everywhere and you lot tell me to release it. It’s Friday and here it is
All proceeds go to the little legend @islasfight
