Kamakaze and Don EE have two of the most inspiring stories in all of football.

Both have lived out two childhood dreams by becoming pro players by day and MCs by night. Kamakaze a.k.a Matt Robinson is a midfielder with almost 300 career appearances to his name, and he’ll be captaining Dagenham & Redbridge in their FA Cup first round tie on November 5. He also made history as the first ever person to feature in FIFA as a playable character and a soundtracked artist, featuring on FIFA 20 and 21 with tracks “Last Night” and “On Fire”.

Don EE – a.k.a Medy Elito – is a free-flowing winger who has repped clubs at home and abroad including Colchester, Cambridge, Newport, and VVV Venlo He’s racked up serious numbers in football and music, with his feel-good bangers heard by millions.

VERSUS and the Emirates FA Cup brought the duo together for a unique insight into their come ups, the challenges of balancing careers in football and music, and how rapping has affected their on-pitch success.
