BBC Introducing Stage

Actress, rapper, dancer, singer... Paigey has it all

Paigey Cakey is a Hackney born female MC specialising in just about everything. Under the name Paige Meade, she starred in Joe Cornish's film Attack The Block in 2011 and will next be on your TV screens in late 2012 in Waterloo Road - and that's just the start of her talents.

From the number of YouTube videos on show, Paigey Cakey demonstrates an all rapping, all dancing performance style that's sharp, witty and full of wordplay. Did we mention she could sing too?
Paigey expects her first mixtape to land in the winter of 2012 with collaborations from Mz Bratt, Princess Nyah and Wiley. Hackney will be a great taster of things to come.
