Whoever said Britain lacked talented female MCs?
Some of the UK’s top female rap artists gave awe-inspiring performances during Ladies Night at the Deal Real Legacy pop up shop in Carnaby Street on the 15th of May.
The music store which became popular in the early noughties as the home of British music and culture; welcoming everyone from Kanye to Amy Winehouse through its doors reopened in April for a 6 week stint in the heart of London.
Friday’s event saw rap artists including Kate Tempest, Paigey Cakey and Lady Lykez who performed their single ‘Cold’ together for the first time. One of our favourite rap duo Poetic Pilgrimage also picked up the mic and gave a smashing performance.

Oh, did we mention BBC Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo also played a fantastic set on the night?
