Anyone who’s been following the grime scene (and reading BlatantlyBlunt) over the last few years will have seen Birmingham and the West Midlands’ rise in prominence. Having put out some of the biggest names such as SX, Trilla, C4, JayKae, Preditah, Swifta Beater to name just six. They have also been home to two of the biggest crews in recent memory (Stay Fresh and Invasion Alert), so BBC Radio 1Xtra decided to pick Birmingham as for this year’s ‘1Xtra Live’. Part of that consisted of ‘The Sessions’ which brought together MC Workshops, spoken word and songwriter nights and even dance workshops!

Check out this video they put together which captures some of the action that went down!
