Whats on this week!

This Thursday sees Roots Manuva take the stage at Glasgow's the Arches as he tours his fifth studio album 4everevolution, and I for one am pretty excited.

Roots manuva isn't your typical British Rapper as his blend of hip hop with reggae, dub, electronica and even gospel and lyrics about the soul really make his sound stand out.

 This may be down to him growing up in East London around the original soundsytem culture and having a father who was a preacher, which he claims not only influences his music but the way in which he lives his life.

His 2001 release "Run Come Save Me" gained him a Mercury Music Prize nomination and featured the classic "Witness" (voted the greatest UK hip hop tune of all time by readers of Hip Hop connection.  His influence is said to have opened the doors for future British atalent such as Dizee Rascal and the streets.

He will be touring his latest album which is said to be his most accomplished and well crafted to date.  He is a legend and a must see for all music fans, not just grime heads.  Get your tickets here!
