London Posse in the house
Before there was Stormzy and Dizzee there was Rodney P and Bionic aka London Posse. Hands down the most influential British rap group of all time. Without London Posse there would be no grime or UK hip-hop as it is today. Before London Posse hit the scene in 1987, it was still commonplace for Britain’s aspiring MCs to rhyme with American accents. London Posse came from sound system culture and it showed. British accents rhymed in a ragga style over hard hitting beats that would have won any late '80s sound clash. 30 years after their debut single, all three surviving members (Rodney P, Bionic & DJ Billy Biznizz) perform for the first time in 20 years. These are sure to be the hottest tickets of the year so make sure you grab one while they last. Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
