Holdin’ Court: Genius Squad / IMS / Unusual Suspects @ New Venue! Poison Bar, Sat 27th November
From Press Release:
“Formed in 2006, Genius Squad was initially a name rapper Vecks & DJ Herbie Dragons (Ramblers Association) used for their live shows with wunderkind spitter Tai.
Following one of the legendary cypher sessions at Vecks and Herbies yard, Don’t Flop legend Scizzahz (OSB’z) joined the team. He was swiftly followed by battle king Enlish (Beer & Rap/Team Hate) and beat maestro 184 (Last Minute Records/Gangoon Dubz) and finally, following another cypher, Conflix (Chain of Command/Character Assassins).
Famed for their freestyle ability – honed at infamous open-mic night Slip Jam:B – G Squad have gained a rep for their energetic live shows and drinking/shit chatting ability.
While now mainly concentrating on solo work, in the best Wu Tang tradition, they reform (like Voltron) every so often to perform live.
This time round they’re promoting their recent mixtape ‘The Cleverlution’.”
