TGP Presents: Jehst x Strange U featuring Sonnyjim, Lee Scott & Wonky Logic

1978324_684475004928643_1787068994_oThe heads running The Guilty Party have been putting it down for UK hip-hop over the past year, hosting some truly memorable occasions which have seen performances from the likes of Devilman, Lunar C and most recently Jehst, who visited West Yorkshire alongside Strange U (rapper Kashmere and producer Dr. Zygote) at the Belgrave Music Hall on November 7th. The supporting lyricists were artists who share an impressive trait with Jehst, the notorious label owner of YNR Records, one of the UK’s most esteemed hip-hop labels. Sonnyjim, the remarkably established founding artist of Eat Good records, built his reputation over the past decade with dozens of releases defining his uniquely intellectual brand of lyricism, formidably becoming one of Birmingham’s most celebrated hip-hop artists. Then there’s Lee Scott, who began the initially obscure cult following of his homegrown Blah Records label at the start of the new millennia, upholding a cult manifesto of “cold saggin’ moon funk” music and overlooking its gradual progression into a nationwide following. He was to make his first live performance in Leeds alongside Black Josh and Stinkin’ Slumrock. A bill filled with iconic artists, it’s fair to imagine that nobody really anticipated anything other than a classic.
