TY: Guys We’d !!!

Ever since 2003, when we saw Ty host and perform at a Blacklilly event with The Roots in Cargo (London), he has been on our radar as one of the funniest, most intelligent and thought provoking emcees. And a master of ceremonies he is. Album after album, the South London rapper has delivered quality, progression, and honesty. His rhymes are witty, his cadence is natural, and whether he’s backed by a full band or DJ, his live sets are worth every pence. We can gush about him for days, but we’d need a thesaurus to refrain from reusing words like amazing.  If you’re lucky enough to meet Ty in person, you won’t be able to miss the honest to goodness presence emanating out him.

You might not catch Ty on tour this summer since he will be spending a portion of the sunny season mentoring and teaching students at Art Rules Aruba. You can, however, anticipate an EP release sometime this soon.

Jazz turned upside down, then inside out, then sprayed with febreeze

If you’re in London on a Thursday night, head over to Mau Mau Bar on Portobello Rd for a night of Jazz re:freshed. Adam ‘Rock’ Moses and Justin ‘Top Rock’ McKenzie (both of which are Guys We’d !!!), started a movement in 2003 that has spawned into a weekly residency in a West London bar with an impressive list of impassioned artists. They also released two records under the Jazz re:freshed label, a 2 disc compilation and the first of their 5ive series. Their second release, Spaven’s 5ive x drummer Richard Spaven, is an apt representation of the caliber of musicians on the bill at Mau Mau Bar on any given Thursday.
