Backstage at The O2 Academy Newcastle with Kay Greyson, Kema Kay & J Smirk (15/07/2017)

The O2 Academy Newcastle became the home of gangsta rap for one night only last Saturday, as DJ Yella of N.W.A & Lil’ Eazy-E brought that classic West Coast sound to the North East of England.

As a massive hip-hop head I knew as soon as this show was announced that I had to be there, it’s not often a member of one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time comes to your home town.

However, after interviewing the first support act of the night, Kay Greyson, back in January, it made this show even more of a must see for myself. It was my first opportunity to see North East hip-hop on the big stage and what an experience it was.
