Yeah man, they've shut down now. Sorely missed. I used to be in a crew from luff called rhyme alliance. Had links with some dudes from notts.
I used to be down with msd from notts, blue eyes from Derbyshire and mink from sheff.
Notts had a good scene in the late 80's. Rock city had p.e., ll cool j, cold chillin crew, mantronix, schoolly d, cypress hill, sh!t loads of people. Leicester had run dmc and that's about it.
We had a nice jazz funk scene going on which is how i got to support Gil Scott. Happy days.
Kids nowadays,....bah, no respect for the old timers. All banging on about freestyle battles and how fast they can rap...bah.
