Grime artist Mez MC gives taste of Nottingham hip hop opera

A rapper has given a preview of a hip hop opera, produced by a Nottingham youth group, that has received royal backing.

Mez MC, from the city, who recently won Radio 1Xtra's #NextInGrime competition, is set to appear in the production, which is set in a barber shop and seeks to highlight the futility of postcode rivalries.

The youth scheme behind the project, Full Effect, was set up almost three years ago in St Ann's and is funded by Prince William and Prince Harry's Royal Foundation charity.
