You may have already heard a bit about it while scrolling down your social networks, but the sixth edition of Jammer’s Lord of the Mics took place yesterday. We’ll have to wait for the DVD to see the full battle for ourselves, and a more detailed account of what went down will be hitting the site shortly, courtesy of a Clash writer in attendance.
But tonight, in honour of the sixth series of the legendary East London stairwell, Boiler Room plays host to an unbelievable line-up of some of the most influential MCs in the game for a LOTM takeover. Wiley and Kano’s appearance in Jammer’s mum’s basement is one of the most legendary grime battles of all time and Eskiboy himself is set to deliver a live PA alongside Skepta, Frisco, Footsie, Scratchy, Bruza, Nappa, Earz, Rage, Domino, and more.
Head here to read an in-depth article on the influence of Lord of the Mics on the grime scene and check out a behind-the-scenes video shot in the infamous Dungeon.
Stream the event here - it all kicks off at 9:00 GMT. Unmissable.
