Blak Twang

Blak Twang appearing at this event

Blak Twang, aka Tony Rotten, is one of the pioneers of UK hip-hop and a Mobo award winner. He is famed for his live performances all around the world and his ability, especially in his earlier recordings, to include various South London word usage and slang as well as locations without sounding too obvious, making him a firm favourite with English hip-hop fans as the original, “Hip-Hop Geezer”.

Ty

Ty appearing at this event

Born in Nigeria but raised in London, Ty takes in a myriad of influences, as is evident on his recent collaboration with Femi Kuti's drummer, Tony Allen. A product of the North London spoken word/ poetry/hip-hop scene. After his 2001 debut 'Awkward' on the BigDada label Ty has busied himself touring and performing with like-minded artist Biznizz and recording his follow up. A rare and genuine talent. Check him!
