Suspect Packages Live :: Charles Moopowe, Ranx Diggla, Laing (MSI & ASYLUM) & Genghis + Scizzahz + Steady & Crusada

Friday the 14th of October sees the return of one of the UK's finest crews to the Suspect Packages stage, Charles Moopowe, Ranx Diggla & Laing (part of Birminghams mighty MSI & ASYLUM), alongside the new breed coming through with the one like Genghis.

Having served up their debut album 'Takez Time' back in 1996, the massively overlooked self titled 'MSI Asylum' album in 1999, and not forgetting the second release for Big Dada Recordings in 1997, Asylum's 'Gemini Twins' 12". This unit are no strangers to rocking it right, labelled at the British Wu-Tang back in the day, they are set to storm the scene once again as solo artists and more... Don't get it twisted, just because they've not been around for a while, doesn't mean they've not been cooking the heat up in the lab. If you've been checking the radio show you'll have heard the barrage of material waiting to drop. Pure fire!


Representing the South Coast in fine style we also have super slick producer/emcee Scizzahz launching his new album 'I Still Work Harder'. A bonafied badman on the boards and one to watch out for, his album is taking things to a whole new level. Expect special guests on stage too...


Finally we'll also have Steady & Crusada delivering the launch of their joint album 'The 11th Hour Massacre'. The Prose producer teamed up with West London mic man Crusada, one of the UK's best kept secrets is about to be unleashed...


The night will be hosted by ENLISH, with residents DISORDA & DJ LOK dropping Hip Hop & Reggae Dancehall heaterz...

All taking place on Friday 14th October @ Vibe Live (upstairs @ Vibe Bar), Brick Lane, London, E1. Kicking off at 8pm, and ending at 1am. It's free entry if you reach the downstairs bar at Vibe before 8pm, and £4 thereafter.

>> Facebook Event Page <<


> Also, downstairs for extra flavour, former DMC Champ Mr Thing & fellow DJ and vinyl enthusiast JP join forces for their Monthly throwdown of all things good from their extensive record collections - 'Thing Fridays'. Expect everything from your favourite anthems to the super rare gems they have unearthed over the years - Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and everything inbetween!

The concept is simple, kinda like an emcees game of 'it' or 'tag', they spit a verse, and call out the next emcee, who records their verse, and so on... It's been running in Australia for just over a year now and there's always a fresh take on the game, with different emcees coming up with unique ways of delivering their verse, and then there's also the verse itself... Anyway, here's the start of the UK version of Rappertag from Mystro, he'll explain more...
