For a compelling look into this rapper’s life story, be sure to check out the inaugural episode of MTV’s ‘This Is How I Made It’ during which 2 Chainz takes a look back at his life and how he made it in the rap game.
Scroobius Pip has brought spoken word to the world touring with electronic music maestro Dan Le Sac and or leading his band Distraction Pieces. Keen to deliver a truly unique gig experience Pip has opted to stay away from the pleasantries of poetry cafes and theatre and deliver the Spoken Word Tour 2012 to the grotty, sweaty gig venues that he himself frequented as a fan.
His tour will coincide with the release of the ‘No Commercial Breaks Special Edition’. A heavily demanded re-release of Pip’s debut record, of which he only made 1000 copies and sold out many years ago, with eBay prices ranging from £40-£130! Prepare yourselves for a full and engaging 60 minute live show including support from electrifying force of reckoning, Kate Tempest and forefather of the modern spoken word scene Polarbear and the comedy genius of Brian Gittins

Mean Fiddler Presents … rising talent and visionary artist: Joey Bada$$
Influenced by the likes of the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, this Brookyn based rapper focuses on reviving the sounds and styles of ‘golden age’ New York hip-hop. He is undoubtedly the stand-out among his Progressive Era crew, a collective of 18 rappers, producers, graphic designers and studio engineers who all share Joey’s aspirations of reforming modern-day hip-hop into its preceding, classic form.
Joey will be performing at XOYO on the 14th Nov. Be sure to get your tickets for this unmissable event and check out the mixtape to get in the mood.
