The Prodigy get nasty

It’s been a busy few days for The Prodigy, as news leaked that their first album in six years would be out in March, the posters went up and the gloves most definitely came off, not that we ever expected anything less. The Day Is My Enemy has been described as loud, obnoxious and violent, and that’s just by the band, who also recently claimed that they should be seen as just as an important cultural band as the likes of Blur or Oasis.

‘I don’t wanna pop up on a few more TV programmes saying ‘The Prodigy did this!’ I’m just telling people now that, yeah, I think we are important. When you trace the lines back to the Sex Pistols and the Clash, we are in that line.’ Liam Howlett, The Prodigy via NME.

The Prodigy’s album is out at the end of March followed by a UK tour starting in May.

George the Poet

He has a degree from King’s College, Cambridge and performed at the Albert Hall’s Elgar room as a student. George Mpanga AKA George the Poet started rapping at 15, he was the face of BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and Sky Sports F1 commissioned him to write poems for the coverage of both the 2012 Formula One and the 2013 Monaco Grand Prix and he was a runner-up for the BRITs 2015 Critics’ Choice Award. He also counts legendary rapper NAS as a fan, has been described as one of London’s leading young wordsmiths and recently added a second London date as part of his 2015 tour, oh and he’s only 23 years’ old. We’re not the only one predicting great things from this London rapper.
