Friday Flex presents #THROWDOWN with local Leicester rappers

Friday Flex presents #THROWDOWN with local Leicester rappers

We have always wanted to do a show where local Leicester artists can showcase their talents. With the recent unrest within our city, we wanted to present a show promoting unity and inviting artists from across Leicester.

Date: 11th October 2013, Venue: EAVA FM Studios, Leicester.

For the first ever #Throwdown event, we were joined in the studio by Bossman, Bonnie Blazer, Dragonhearts, Loaneski, K.Y. and Tha Deadeye.

The idea is pick a beat and throw down your lyrics - simple.

Once all of the artists had arrived we had each person pick a number from a hat to decide when they would step up to the mic. To ensure complete transparency, this was done live on air and the artists stepped up in the following order:

1) Loaneski on "Keep ya head up"



2) Bonnie Blazer on "So sincere"



3) Bossman on "Invincible"



4) Dragonhearts on "Survival"



5) K.Y on "Jah world"



6) Deadeye on "Faces of death"



Once the exhibition was over, the artists all joined together in unity and dropped lyrics on the Wu Tang Clan classic "Triumph".



Coming on Wed 6th Nov a 5:30pm



A written account of the show will not do the atmosphere or the artist’s justice. The video package will speak for itself. It was an amazing show and all the artists gelled with each other perfectly. Everyone was there to show what Leicester to offer and show that people from different backgrounds with different stories to tell can work together to create something amazing. The mutual respect and unity was what we at the Friday Flex are all about.

We want to thank all the artists for taking time out to join us. There will be another #Throwdown, when the time is right.

If you are an artist who thinks they have what it takes to #Throwdown, then please send us your music to music@fridayflex.com.

Until the next time........Peace
