All roads lead to The Forum, where the legendary EPMD and the recently-formed super group, the Alumni, will be performing, and where the night will end with an afterparty.
EPMD (Erick & Parrish Making Dollars) aka Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith are one of the most prominent acts in East Coast hip hop of all time. The duo has been active for almost 28 years (minus two breakups) and is known for their funk and rock-fuelled sample-heavy music spewing classics such as Crossover and You Gots To Chill.
Joining them will be none other than old school superstars Special Ed, Kwame and the UK’s very own Monie Love, who’ve formed the collective, the Alumni, to educate, entertain and reinvigorate hip hop culture. Nice & Smooth, aka Greg Nice and Smooth B, will also join the Alumni on stage.
As well as rare performances from these legendary acts, with UK support from JMC and Anaele419, formerly known as Wan-Cee, Fresh Since 88 will be paying homage to the rest of hip hop culture, showcasing some of the UK’s most talented graffiti artists and turntablists.
When: Friday, April 4, from 8pm
Where: The Forum, 9-17 Highgate Rd, Kentish Town, London, NW5 1JY
