Lord Of The Mics 2...

Published by Warren Dell under on Tuesday, June 27, 2006
Early tapes of battles between Craig G and KRS One and early footage of the block parties in New York stand as early artefacts that document some of the keys moments of the Hip-Hop scene. While the grime scene may in theory only be three or four years old one thing that should always be shown when telling anyone about the scene is the landmark DVD Lord Of The Mics.

This DVD has inspired so many others that pop up in stores and included the infamous lyrical showcase of Wiley V Kano. From camera phones to You Tube this clash of the heavyweights has been seen by many and will be looked back upon as two heavyweights of the scene flexing their lyrical muscle.

The setting was an underground basement, it could be said as the UK equivalent to the Americans setting of their block parties. The crammed basement had emcees, members of their crews and onlookers all crammed in while the Kano, Wiley clash took place with them standing on the stairs to the basement.

Since the DVD came out everyone has been wondering if and when a second would be done. Well now the waiting is over with Hot Headz Productions releasing the sequel on the 28th July.

As usual their will be an accompanying CD but the clashes are what everyone is waiting for and this promises to be big with more of them than ever. The clashes are:

(Puts on Michael Buffer like voice)

Tinchy Stryder V Ears
Demon V Bashy
Skepta V De-Velopment
Plus plenty more as Logan Sama, Cameo and Cheeky provide the beats.

Roll on the 28th!!
