40th Anniversary Live

Jalal (Last Poets a.k.a Lightnin’ Rod)
with Jazz Warriors International Collective
& Malik & The O.G’s
+ DJ Perry Louis
Hosted By Lemn Sissay

7pm – 11pm Monday 10th Feb 2014
@ Jazz Café, Parkway, Camden, London NW1

£10 Advance Tickets

In 1973 a fast-talking, hustler by the name of Sport played a huge part in the birth of Hip-Hop. Brought to life by Lightnin’ Rod a.k.a Jalal of the Last Poets and backed by music provided by Kool & The Gang among others. His street tales of card games, throwing dice and chasing women influenced Wu Tang, Ice T, Public Enemy, Jungle Brothers, Black Moon and many more.

To mark the Hustlers Convention 40th anniversary, godfather of Rap Jalal, of The Last Poets, takes to the stage alongside the Jazz Warriors International Collective to bring this incredible story to life. It will be the first time ever the album has been performed since its release.

With support from the UK’s finest spoken word artist  – a student of Jalal & the late Gil Scott Heron – Malik & The O.G’s, and hosted by Lemn Sissay, this is a not-to-be missed event for all fans of Hip-Hop, spoken word and Jazz alike.

The performance comes as a new feature documentary, due for release next year, is in production on the pioneering role Jalal, and Hustlers Convention, have played in the history of rap.

“We are pleased to announce that Chuck D (Public Enemy) has commissioned the film Hustlers Convention. 
The Hustlers Convention Live @ the Jazz Café  produced by Fore-Word Press, will form a major part of this historic film.  Chuck D, who is Executive Producer on the new film, stated that: ‘Hustlers Convention was profoundly influential. It was a sort of verbal bible to understand the streets. Jalal’s story needs to be told. It’s a missing piece of culture.’”  

(Please note this performance is to be filmed)
