While the word legend gets thrown around with little regard these days it is fair to say that EPMD have truly earned the title through a consistent catalogue of genre shaping classics.. With the release of seven brilliant albums over a twenty year period there are few acts in Hip-Hop that have such a proven track record.
The combination of Eric Sermon & Parrish Smith is more than a sum of it’s parts and with the backing of the incredible DJ and the producer responsible for many bangers for EPMD and Busta Rhymes DJ Scratch they will be plowing through all-time Hip-Hop classics such as ‘You’re The Customer’, ‘Richter Scale’, ‘You Gots To Chill’ and more. As suggested by the titles of all of their albums these founders of the Hit Squad are all about business and it is live that all of their years of experience in the business come to the fore so this is the place to be in London for any real Hip-Hop fans.
Joining EPMD on stage are London’s equivalent in terms of class, experience and longevity Skitz & Rodney P. Having cut his teeth with the legendary London Posse, whose first release was actually a year before EPMD’s, Rodney P has been at the forefront of the UK Hip-Hop scene and secured that position through his longtime collaborative partnership with DJ / Producer Skitz.
The audience will also be blessed with sets from Spin Doctor who will be setting the mood with his own brand of Hip-Hop and soul gems.
