Event: Blatantly Blunt presents Girls In Front – 14 August 2014 @ Silver Bullet, London
In a scene dominated by male talent, we are happy to bring the latest of our live events, ‘Girls In Front’ – a night in Finsbury Park, North London which shines the limelight on the wealth of UK female rappers, as the world shifts it’s consciousness towards gender equality.

Following her rebrand from No Lay to Bella Gotti, the legendary UK femcee leads the way, having gained industry wide accolation and recently following her US co-sign by WomenOfHipHop.Com and a feature request from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Karlie Redd! Bella has the reputation as the most revered UK female MC in the game!
Lyrically Challenged Collective, consisting of Shay D, MC Angel, Sirena Reynolds and DJ Shorty have been packing out Hackney’s Passing Clouds venue for nearly five years, dubbed as ‘hip hop innovators’ by The Independent. Their set will bring a heavy dose of uplifting lyricism and positivity with a gift of turning the crowd insane!
Batz Inda Belfry, the newly signed Manchester duo of Envy and One Da will be tearing the stage down with their in-your-face raps, following the new video ‘Seaweed’. Envy has been co-signed by The Guardian Music’s ‘Band Of The Day’ column and is the breakfast host of Unity Radio in Manchester.
Also performing is BBC co-signed starlet Elektric – a Birmingham raised poet, songwriter and actor who brings ‘an old school hip hop flow that meets new school soul’, and C Cane an emerging star of the grime scene, who is appearing as part of Big Narstie’s BDL UK tour.
Up and comers are also given the opportunity to shine, with £250 of promotion from BlatantlyBlunt Promo up for grabs. Entrants are encouraged to sign up online here.
We are honoured to be supported by the pioneering former pirate radio station Itch FM which was the home our weekly grime show – Listen To Hip Hop All Weekend on Itch FM, Friday – Sunday ww.itch.fm/live.
As we approach our seven year anniversary as a digital music platform and artist promo organization, ‘Girls In Front’ is a cause for further celebration as we enter a re-launch phase of the Blatantly Blunt journey, expanding content and providing a new user experience by providing design and lifestyle content on a new interface. Watch this space!
This event follows our 5th anniversary concert at Vibe Bar in Brick Lane, headlined by Melanin 9 and our event last year at Silver Bullet to host Genesis Elijah’s London leg of his ‘This is my hustle’ UK tour.
