The Bull and Gate in Kentish town played host to Guer­ril­la Repub­lik Scand­inavia. With a mix­ture of Scand­inavi­an, Eng­lish and Amer­ic­an based mcs this was truly a glob­al night of hip hop.

Open­ing the show was the host, Amer­ic­an based rap­per and founder of Guer­ril­la Repub­lik Scand­inavia, Cap­it­al X. His energy and pas­sion on the mic set the tone for an even­ing of explos­ive per­form­ances from all the acts that fol­lowed. Next to the stage came an onslaught of Lon­don based skill and lyr­i­cism, from Crazy Haze and Mo Alpa­cino to Xidus Pain, who enter­tained the crowd with a skil­ful free­style. Kapwon per­formed a thought pro­vok­ing set, Reveal then spat out thun­der bars and Awate’s power­ful words filled the ears of the audi­ence. All of these acts took the night to the next level with their per­form­ance and word play.

Also per­form­ing on the night was Leth­al Injec­tion, a group made up of rap­pers Sheepy and Yenemesi from Nor­way. They dropped bombs with their rap­id fire and base bump­ing set. Their speed and flow was on super charge. The final act of the night was Amer­ic­an based rap group NBS (Nat­ur­al Born Spit­ters) who kept the hip hop flow­ing till the very end. Of course none of these acts would have been pos­sible without the amaz­ing tal­ent on the mix­er from the one and only DJ Steaz.

As the night came to a close the talk turned to Saturday’s free Lon­don Street Cypher event at Leake Street graf­fiti tun­nel. This was the first but by no means last Lon­don street cypher set up by Kapwon and Guer­ril­la Repub­lik Scand­inavia. From the skills of the graf­fiti artists to the lyr­ic­al tal­ent of all the rap­pers this was truly an expres­sion of all things hip hop.

If you could not make these great events make sure you get to the next Guer­ril­la Repub­lik Scand­inavia show in Lon­don. To all of you that love all things hip hop you will not be dis­ap­poin­ted!!!
