The his­tory of clas­sic hip hop is one centred around team­work and now, the legendary NYC hip hop col­lect­ive, Juice Crew, have announced a run of just three UK shows this autumn in Lon­don, Bris­tol and Manchester. This will be the first time the ori­gin­al super group of hip hop have played on Brit­ish soil for more than 20 years.

The Queens­bridge collective’s con­tri­bu­tion to hip hop dur­ing the 80s was mam­moth, with found­ing mem­ber and mas­ter­mind Mar­ley Marl with ori­gin­al Juice Crew mem­ber,  Mr Magic, using the col­lect­ive as a plat­form to show­case young and excit­ing artists, such as the then little known Big Daddy Kane, now widely regarded as one of the greatest rap­pers of the 80s.

The Grammy Award win­ning Big Daddy Kane will be joined on this very spe­cial UK tour by Kool G Rap, bring­ing his unique flow and rhymes, along­side the cre­at­ive geni­us and vet­er­an of the group, Masta Ace; plus MC Shan, who has recor­ded some of the most essen­tial old-school record­ings hip hop has to offer; battle rap­per Craig G, and the only female mem­ber of the Juice Crew, Rox­anne Shanté.

From notori­ous beefs with oth­er crews, to infam­ous diss tracks and what can only be described as one the best posse cuts ever in the shape of The Sym­phony’, the Juice Crew’s remark­able career defines the golden era of hip hop.

Their music­al out­put con­tin­ues to inspire numer­ous artists, with the most not­able of these being hip hop heavy­weight Nas, who hails from the same begin­nings in Queens and has reworked some of the group’s icon­ic tracks such as ‘Da Bridge 2001’, was an ode to the group’s clas­sic 1986 release, ‘The Bridge’.

The group were also a genu­ine inspir­a­tion to their loc­al com­munity and musi­cians alike, as Nas pre­vi­ously summed up in a past inter­view, [The Juice Crew] made us believe that although we came from those wild streets, we still had a chance to change our lives”.

Don’t miss the chance to wit­ness six ori­gin­al Juice Crew artists reunit­ing for an unmiss­able cel­eb­ra­tion of old school hip hop this Novem­ber.
