Big Smoke MagazineThe new issue of the occasional Big Smoke Magazine is out now and is available from all major stockists including: Virgin, HMV, Borders, some record shops and some newsagents as well as being available now at www.bigsmokelive.com.

The magazine has long been a beacon of quality in a sea of published chip paper. Boasting a writing staff fuelled by ex ukhh.com writers, generally the only complaint about this periodical was its infrequency. The self styled Documentary Of Potential is now up to Issue 2, Volume 2 and only costs £3.50.

Big Smoke MagazineThe main artists covered in this issue are Roots Manuva from Big Dada and Mighty Mystro from Low Life Records. The bumper mag also features major names like: Raekwon (Wu-Tang), DJ Biznizz, Evil Ed, Keith Lawrence, Shortee Blitz and Verb T.

There is also coverage of upcoming and lesser known artists including: Ramson Badbonez, Broke‘N’English, YT, Bruza, Terror Danjah, Manny Norte (1Xtra), Ralph Rip Shit, Brigzy, Phoenix Quarter, Shifty Spirit, and Wan Cee as well as articles and features on European Hip-Hop and Phil Knott’s Brooklyn Fashion and loads more as well.

Well known artists who have picked up the pen and contributed for this issue include: Mr Penfold (Itch FM), Bandit (M.S.I.& Asylum), Metropolis (Foreign Beggars), Natty (Def Con), Disorda (Suspect Packages), DJ Excalibah (6Music / Tales of the Legend), Phil Knott and DJ Moneyshot.

Keep your diaries open for Sat 6th May when the Under Nourished 3 - 'Error Tape' launch party in conjunction with Big Smoke Magazine will take place at the Cafe Du Sport (main room), Reading (St Mary's Butts, opp Burger King).
