The Beatnuts are one of the most energetic Hip-Hop duos ever. Their distinctly Nu Yorican funk led, latin tinged sounds have seen every Hip-Hop party across the globe bumping to the sounds of bangers like “Watch Out Now’, ‘No Escapin This’, ‘Off The Books’ & ‘Se Acabo’ to name just a few. As part of the Native Tongues collective they have worked with everyone from Method Man and Common to The Stereo MC’s and Akon in a career that kicked off in 1993 and shows no sign of letting up.
Blu & Exile crashed into Hip-Hop consciousness with the instant classic ‘Below The Heavens’ Blu has been one of the underground names on everybody’s lips. As prolific as he is talented he boasts a string of full length albums and just as many mixtapes since his 2007 debut. Exile is the producer’s producer. The musician’s musician even. His incredible beats have dropped jaws for years with their originality and timelessness. Since the start, everyone from Snoop Dogg, Mobb Deep and Fashawn have craved that Exile flavour that other producers simply can’t provide.
Jeru The Damaja came to prominence as a member of the Gang Starr Foundation headed up by DJ Premier & the late great Guru. Since first appearing on wax on ‘I’m The Man’ on Gang Starr’s 1992 ‘Daily Operation’ album he went of to record a slew of DJ Premier produced classics including ‘Come Clean’, ‘Ya Playin Yaself’ and ‘Me or the Papes’. The ‘Original Dirty Rotten Scoundrel’ lives up to the moniker on stage with one of the most entertaining live shows out there so be sure to be front and centre.
With support from Dag Savage (Exile combined with Cali’s freshest MC Johaz), Choosey and The Doctor’s Orders very own DJ Mr Thing, this is set to be a truly incredible and unmissable show.
