On December 8th, Vibe Bar London will be host to underground Hip Hop’s brightest talents, showcasing the very best from the most recognisable hip hop collectives across the globe.
Representing Philadelphia supergroup Army of the Pharaohs, Reef the Lost Cauze will be joined live onstage by DJ Illegal- one half of Europe’s most talented production teams, Snowgoons. Having teamed up teamed up to produce one of the year’s most anticipated releases with Your Favourite MC, Reef and Illegal will be appearing in London to give London ‘heads the chance to see this masterpiece performed live alongside the biggest tracks from Reef, AOTP, and the Snowgoons’ back catalogues.
Also travelling across the Atlantic to join DJ Illegal onstage will be Boston native Slaine. After spending many years making a name for himself as part of Specialteamz, Slaine became gained most recognition with the La Coka Nostra collection. Having managed to hold his own alongside veterans Everlast and ILL Bill, Slaine earned himself a solid fan base and his talent grew exponentially under the limelight. After taking timeout to secure his position as the number one Boston tough guy for movies, starring in Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Slaine returned to music in 2011 releasing the long-awaited A World With No Skies 2.0 and the critically-acclaimed mixtape State Of Grace with Statik Selektah. Hitting his peak lyrically, Slaine will make his first stop in London as a solo artist.
To add to a night of collaborations, the support acts will also be representative of London’s diversity. The notorious Stig of the Dump will be gracing the stage as London’s best host, keeping the crowd entertained with his trademark brand of humour as well as dropping a selection of his most bruising tracks, which will be sure to get the crowd ready for the main event. In charge of the records for the night is DJ Snuff, a veteran of the scene, having toured with Hip Hop’s elite including DJ Premier and DJ Muggs. Snuff will also be unveiling his new collective Caxton Press which consists of Manage, Kingpin, eMCee Killa, Amy True, and the DJ himself.
