Redrama

Redrama

IBMCs headed up to Finland to find out more about Finnish Hip Hop. We interviewed Laineen Kasperi, Redrama and Jonti and Shaka. In the Finnish Hip Hop scene most of the rap is in Finnish. One of the biggest emcees to rap in English is known as Redrama. He is a Helsinki-based rapper and producer. His first breakthrough was by winning the Finnish MC-Championship in 2001, the same year his first EP came out.

Sir Tomz ft. Nih Illi – The Struggle [Video]

Sir Tomz continues his onslaught on the UK homegrown Hip-Hop scene with this superb new promotional video featuring label mate and talented songstress Nih illi. The Struggle is a lyrically deep track over Three Six Mafia's Dirty South anthem Late Nite Tip Remix. It sees Tomz touch on subjects that others might be scared to touch on and is a little bit of a wake up call for those living in silence.

Boardmasters Festival

Relentless Energy Drink Boardmasters Festival

If you’re looking to go to festival with a bit of a twist this year, this could be the event that's right up your street! Living in the UK means that there are so many to choose from but the Boardmasters festival offers that little bit extra. With a great line up to suit everyone’s music tastes and some pretty impressive surf, skate and BMX shows, how could you justify missing out?

With urban youth culture proving to be an increasingly popular theme of exploration throughout the narrative of today’s British film and entertainment media, it’s inevitable that a tongue-in-cheek, more comedic approach would eventually seem a worthwhile endeavour for potential film distributors. Television’s already seen recent farcical attempts with such shows as, the moderately successful, Phone Shop on Channel 4, and BBC’s utterly deplorable Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show.
