Banksy's Gift Shop

What d'you think of Banksy?

The freshest thing since freeze-dried sneakers? the Damien Hurst of graffiti? sell out? genius? whatever you think - you're thinking. That's got to be part of the point, right?

Banksy's Exit Through The Gift Shop has been out for a while but is worth peeping if you haven't already.

Here's a short film from Banksy's pop-up cinema/gallery in Leake Street, London, courtesy of www.babelgum.com:

curious - Philosophicide - NEWNESS

Another taster ahead of next months Hammer&Tongue SLAM FINAL...

This verse came about after chatting to a mate about how, in comparison to oppressive governments, social control methods, armies, prisons, torture camps and the global economic oppression of billions - rappers are all pretty pussy!!

Fight the power...peaCe

So fresh, so clean


It's not often that graffiti is described as an act of environmentalism, but, apart from the wack title, 'reverse graffiti' is just that. Created by cleaning the dirt of city surfaces, this is not what the authorities hope for when they tell writers to clean up their acts and do something useful for society - careful what you wish for...

Beats, Rhymes & Picket Lines II




Easy people! Last night I was spitting at a Workers liberty Solidarity benefit gig. A strange cocktail of underground British Hiphop and Extremist left-wing politics. I tried to hit it from both angles with some spoken word and into a more party vibe with a version of 'It Ain't Nothin'' over Dead Prez's hip-hop beat.

Also repping on the night from Brighton was Influx who came hard with some party jams and even a dark dubstep intro piece - sick! From the Endz was Angel MC, sick female poet who's been rockin' the scene for a number of years and Press1 who dropped some sick drunken bars that caught a few off guard - hard. Headlining was Sheffield's The Ruby Kid who dropped a tight set of accapella and straight up block rockin' hiphop.

The night was kinda smash proof but I caused a few cracks in the straight faces. Enjoy the pix courtesy of Highda (props are yours).

Props to Everyone who represented and to Marge and Dan for organising the event - hope you made some money and see you all at the next one!!
