Aftershock Launch Party (Dirty Canvas) 3.2.07
Since Dirty Canvas is practically the only regular Grime night in London,
anyone who is remotely Grime and who wants to do something to showcase
their talent they turn to the D.C. This month saw Aftershock's launch party
for the Shock to the System and bruv it was a shock to see how many
people packed into that tiny venue, including the amount of talent that
was there. (This Image above is never staged, but that guy with the
LDN hat is in every pic)
Scandal.... sipping back one of MANYYY I tell you.
Mz Brats taking a mouthfall.
I turned up a little late, Parking is a bastard and a half.
So by the time i did arrive, I apparently missed Wretch 32's P.A
and this guy was just about to come off the Decks.
So I didn't even have enough time to ask anyone what this guys
name was. Big up Adam mashpot on the turntables (Made up name)
DJ Magic was there as always ready to bash up them
Grimey riddims, although I think someone should let him
know that Technic turntables are too big to play CD's on.
One of Magics crazy fanatics,
I heard this is the 'IN TING' it's called the
OLD LADY.... you hop on one leg while
making it look like you have false teeth.
The tongue can also be used for more effect,
although I would leave that to the P.R.O like
Rak Kapone & Fiddy.
Spyro inventually appeared and got into the mix.
With alot of anoying "When are people going to start Mcing
Magic... WHEN MAGIC.... WHENNNNN..." every 12seconds.
The various talent began to make their way to the front.
Big up Yetunde aka Rachel spitting the Get me bars. Oops I mean Bruza.
Weirdly enough Newham Generals who bullied us only a couple of months back
with their lateness turned up bright and early and gave us a little something something.
Note: Why to Emcee's do this? you get paid... you flop? but when you don't
you're on time!? MADNESS.
Skepta looks discusted.
"Pass the mic before i mwwoorrrr all over your head"
Watch Tempa trying to clock the brand of Skepta's sunglasses.
I Love this picture. If only everyone else had Tempa's Energy.
Wretch waiting in the LONG LINE TO SPIT.
"SLEEEEWWW DEM... THATS THE IN TING...
IT'S NICE IT'S NICE"
Skepta eventually got the mic, Rebound X dropped and it was some sort
of NASA (I think?) Some guy even tried to whip out his 2 barrel and
shoot Skepta. It was alot.
Anyone got a paracetomel for D double E?
Tempa T's wellllllllllllllllll Excited.
Gemma, Gemma, Gemma... What are we going to do with you?
SERIOUSLY... she turned up looking like a page 3 girl.
With some terrible corset , looking like it was 7 sizes to skinny for her.
Big up Hooks aka Hooker (apparently he got the name from putting something
about!? Proberly headaches with his fab pink whistle)
Tshirt is doing alot. URBAN NERDS SOOOON COME.
Big up Chantelle Fiddy, Richard and this other wonderful lady.
Before the days of being Bald... ahhh im sure she will treasure this
picture. Although it's obviously with the whole hat thing she was
experimenting with the no hair look. Good luck with that.
