Living in CON/DEM Nation, Mans CON/DEM Nation...etc

It's been an emotional week. Not least becuase SherlQck and I almost came to blows over the concept of British democracy, and the structure of Western Governance. Yeah, we're fucking Hip Hop. Orifice Volgatron once said QE needs, "a little less backpack, a little more swagger." Well, we've ditched the backpack, but LQcks still likes his designer Jaeger man-bag, and Something Else and myself do enjoy the Eggs Atlantic served up by the Petite ParisiƩn on the corner of Camberwell Grove. I toyed with whether to write another comedy, but to be honest I'm in the mood for an honest roundup of the week.

Rap Exploitated Sessionism - Pikey & Rhymes Hit Ipswich

Having missed my weekly burnout capoiera training session, one passing me in the street could mistake me for a largered up, shit monkey, looking for a fight. They would not be too far wrong. However, today I am not so angry, as last night I witnessed a great many things that made me happy to be ME. And involved in the UK Hip Hop scene.

So yesterday, myself, Rhymes and Pikey Esquire, headed to the home county city of Ipswich. On entering the city limits, one might be mistaken for thinking that this is just another English Upper-middle class hick-town with nowt that much going on, except the odd lynching of Tamil immigrants and some 'oik' deigning to vote anything except Tory. And for the most part, you'd be right.

Beat this Meet

Once in a while, a club night comes along and makes you think, "Jesus shitting christ, that was fucking awesome." I remember that feeling the first time I went to Movement, the first time I went to Procession Sessions (Birmingham, for thems who don't know!), the first time I went to Troublevision. And kick me in the appendix, if I didn't feel it at Beat Redemption, Bournemouth's hot-to-mother-fuxxin-trot Dub'n'Drums'n'Bass earth smasher...

Fat Panda Scandal - A Day in the Life of SherlQck

Hip hop isn't all about being street. In fact, most of the time, it's pretending to be street when in fact you have a massive house in the Hollywood Hills, a fleet of cars that would make the CEO of Thrifty Hire blush and the ecological footprint of an Imperial Deathstar. So it is in fact a breath of fresh air, when you get guys like Looptroop, Dizraeli, Doc Syntax and others who are just the most amazingly level-headed guys in the game, pushing lyricism and the form as far as it can go, ignoring the more negative, materialist aspect of Hip Hop.
