In January 2010, our Street Rhymers masterclass saw a large gathering of MC’s strut their lyrical stuff and hip hop producer Baby J lead a fascinating industry insider’s workshop. DJSS (Formation Records) and DJ G Child (1Xtra) also dropped by to lead masterclasses on career and artist development for young people. These masterclasses were massively popular and proof that there are many more urban music devotees out there than we could have imagined.
In May 2010, hip hop club DJ and 1Xtra presenter Ras Kwame dropped in to talk about his experiences of the music industry. Kwame was once a turntablist for the Fugees, Wu Tang Clan and Public Enemy, is a record company entrepreneur and BBC 1Xtra Homegrown presenter. Needless to say, he had much wisdom to pass on.
