One of the most respected names in North East hip-hop and grime, ‘Ashington Underdog’ Just B has further raised the bar for the region with his new JDZ media ‘SPITFIRE’ freestyle – earning him our ‘Artist of the Week’ title this week.
The significance of Just B’s freestyle is the potential amount of new eyes he’s bringing to our region’s bubbling hip-hop and grime scene; a fact that ‘B doesn’t shy away from in this freestyle, passionately stating “I rep Ashington, Newcastle, Sunderland / I rep Washington, Teesside, Northumberland / I represent everyone who is vulnerable, around here nobody’s living comfortable.”
As one half of Newcastle grime duo HB, along with fellow emcee H-Man, Just B has a lot going on as 2018 comes to a close, including a massive gig at World Headquarters and the release of HB’s brand new album ‘Overcast’. A potential album of the year contender (trust us, we’ve heard it), the nine-track project is fulled as much by emotion as it is by adrenaline, showcasing HB’s lighting in a bottle style at the peak of its power. Catch the pair perform and pick up the album on December 21st at Little Buildings, Newcastle.
