Slaves, Rap Workshops & Klashnekoff
Sorry I've been away from the blog for the past few weeks - been working HARD and my lifeline (aka my laptop) has broken down on me AGAIN hence the lack of posts. Not much has been going on in the world of Urban music other than the Scott Storch vs Timbaland beef (Timbaland wins hands down) so I haven't really missed much!
I've been on the road with BBC World Class doing 'Freedom workshops' in schools in Liverpool, Bristol, Hull & London to not only commemorate and educate around the bi-centennary of the abolition of the slave trade but also to spread the word of the BBC World Class Freedom Competition. Teaching 8-14 year olds about the slave trade and then helping them write raps about it wasn't easy but I was really impressed with what I encountered. Full details on the competition (if you are or know someone aged 8-16 make sure they enter!) photo gallery and more info about what I've been up to are here.
To make amends for no blog posts have this new Klashnekoff video:
Nice exclusive for you... the first video from the Lionheart - Tussle With The Beast album "My Life". The album itse;f is getting rave reviews everywhere and was my album of the month last month - let me know what you think!
