Artist overview from our 10 yr anniversary gig: #5 – Melanin 9

In Hip Hop by Freddy Nielsen

To celebrate 10 years since our inception, we are throwing an unmissable party in the heart of Dalston, East London on December 16th, in association with Hoochinoo. Join the event on Facebook and grab your advanced discounted ticket via Eventbrite. 

Bringing to the stage some of London’s best underground hip hop and grime talent, we have handpicked some of the most authentic and respected artists.

Potentially one of the most intricate lyricists to come out of the UK, Melanin 9 consistently shows off not only complex rhyme schemes, but also a deep understanding of culture and history, which is reflected in the title of his his 2012 album ‘Magna Carta’. Having released 6 albums since his debut ‘High Fidelity’ in 2007, the Londoner has just dropped his newest album ‘Old Pictures’ which you can stream below!
