Word on the Street is London's fresh Hip Hop & Spoken Word night. We take pride in headlining established & underground Hip Hop artists & spoken word poets performing acapella performances to take note of the lyricism. It's about merging audiences and networking as a lot of creatives attend the event.
We also have open mic for anyone who signs up on arrival, and a rap cypher over our DJ playing beats to end the night. There is food & drink served till late and its a seated event although you can dance or vibe if you want to!
Having reached thousands of views on his spoken word videos and releasing real life poetry that people can relate to we are so excited to have this talented and honest poet/rapper hit our stage. He is releasing a book too "My History is more than slavery'. Make sure you come and see him live!
