Shame on you!!

Right now Uncle Flo and myself are deep in the theatre game. We have spent the last 8 weeks working with John Berkavitch (All Torque for those who remember) and the infamous Bboy Bugz to create what is set to be the one of the most original and unique pieces of HipHop theatre the world has ever seen (I shit you not). Marso, Katie P, Jonzi D, Lemn Sissay, Jamie Woon, Royce Wood Jr and Leo Kay have all had a hand in it amongst others and even everyones current favourite Poet Kate Tempest thinks it's good - she said "the best spoken word show I've ever seen". can't argue with that can you?

We will be spending the next 8 weeks or so travelling the country so if it comes near you do try to come and see it and then tweet about it with the hashtage #shamejb

you can find tour info here and more information on the show here

Surrounded By Idiots - ID Group show 9th Jan 2014

The legendary ID crew are doing a group show with a private view this thursday down in Brick Lane. I have had the privilage of working with Shucks and Tizer in the past who are professional, amazingly skilled and all round nice guys.

 If you free go down and check it out and support some real home grown HipHop Heroes.

"Surrounded By Idiots" - The I.D. Crew Show 
@ The Graffiti Life Gallery 10/1/14 - 2/2/14

The collective comprises some of the most eclectic and prolific artists in the global graffiti scene today, with each individual artist boasting what can be described as their own ‘signature’ style. Formed in 1996 by brothers ‘Shucks’ and ‘Tizer’; the ID crew was started as a collective of their friends who they felt were underrated. The letters ‘ID’ after their name gave each member a drive to continually set the bar higher for themselves, whilst carving a niche within the scene.
This, their very first crew show, provides a fascinating insight into their individual practices, the way the collective works together, and their influence on UK graffiti.
