Underworld Konnect Presents
WORD ON THE STREET
A NIGHT OF CHILL HOP & SPOKEN WORD POETRY
WEDNESDAY 7th DECEMBER
TY (Mercury Award International Hip Hop artist)
As one of the most revolutionary rappers on the British hip-hop scene, Ty embodies the intellect, talent and ferocity of an MC always destined to become a legend. Over the last decade, the Mercury Prize nominee has achieved the rare feat of establishing a legacy through his three albums and wise persona, strengthened by his amazing worldwide shows and countless appearances alongside luminaries such as De La Soul, Tony Allen and Pee Wee Ellis. Musically, he's also worked with Estelle, Scratch Perverts, Talib Kweli, Black Twang, Arrested Development, Bahamadia and Zion I, both in front and behind the mixing desk, further proof of his relentless artistry and his evolution from roguish wordsmith from South London to an internationally-acclaimed hip-hop connoisseur.
Jordan Stephens (RIZZLE KICKS)
Doing a special spoken word set on subjects such as mental health and stigmas around it. Truly mind blowing lyricism from this superstar.
One half of international duo Rizzle Kicks, Jordan has been championed for his conscious poetry on commercial radio and underground poetry events.
DJ SHORTY (ITCH FM)
Will be spinning your favourite CHILL HOP joints from Erykah Badu & Roots "You Got Me" to Mos Def "Miss Fat Booty" Odissee's "Own Appeal" A nice mid week vibsing and catch up with your peoples. Good date night too ;)
