Restless Beings presents one of London's most rootsy, underground hip hop gigs for the third time. A group of like-minded artists with the most positive music come together for one night only, and all in the name of HUMAN RIGHTS. With DJ Snuff on the decks, a fusion of legendary hip hop beats and modern lyric play can be expected.
There will also be a boxfresh Open Mic session for new, up and coming artists with the winner receiving a prize including studio time, a photo-shoot, a music video, and the commercial release of their winning single.
With the two previous Human Writes being incredibly popular, tickets are once again likely to sell out fast. One of last year's performers, TY tweeted: "I've never done a show anywhere in the world and the day after, the audience and the artists are all speaking on twitter. NEVER. #HumanWrites"... Human Writes 3 is not one to be missed!
The only event where hip hop really and truly turns up the volume on the many human rights abuses across the world.
One of the most revolutionary rappers on the British hip-hop scene, Ty embodies the intellect, talent and ferocity of an MC always destined to become a legend. Over the last decade, the Mercury Prize nominee has achieved the rare feat of establishing a legacy through his three albums and wise persona. Musically, he's worked with Estelle, Scratch Perverts, Talib Kweli, Black Twang, Arrested Development, Bahamadia and Zion I and many others, both in front and behind the mixing desk, further proof of his relentless artistry and his evolution from roguish wordsmith from South London to an internationally-acclaimed hip-hop connoisseur.
