Earlier this week we saw not one but two launch parties to celebrate the release of the ground breaking Lord Of The Mics 3 DVD, which has had the whole grime scene talking for literally months on end. After attending the first night we felt it right to give you a little run down of the whole event.
The first launch party took place on Monday at The Macbeth in Hoxton and was a private invite only event held for the industry heads, with the second being held last night at Old Blue Last and open for all fans on a first come first serve basis. Of course we would of loved to have made it to both, but due to other commitments was only able to attend the private launch party.
The night started off by showing the first five clashes, from the DVD, with the Diesle vs. Wariko and Lay-Z vs. Mager clash proving popular amongst everyone there. Diesle and Big Narstie then kicked things off by performing a PA of ‘Go Nuts’ which certainly got things warmed up and after that we saw every mc join Jammer onstage for a live performance of the official Lord Of The Mics track. One of the highlights of the night though had to be when Scratchy and Footsie re-lived their legendary clash from the first Lord Of The Mics, a massive shout out to both of them for getting involved and showing everyone that grime is still very much in their hearts.
This night proved to everyone who attended, and hopefully all of you at home after reading this, why grime is still very much alive. We saw a whole load of mc’s bless the mic, at some point throughout the night, including P Money, Chronik, Frisco, Shorty, Stay Fresh, C Gritz, Manga (and loads more) with good vibes throughout and more importantly no beef.
A massive shoutout to everyone who attended (too many names to mention) and a big shoutout to Verena Stefanie, from Kids Of Grime, for these pictures, that fully captured the essence of the event.
Remember the Lord Of The Mics 3 DVD is out now and available to buy from your local HMV store, Amazon, iTunes and many other outlets.
