22 September 16 words: Promoter Focus
Youthoracle of Clash Money gives us the lowdown on his Nottingham battle rap nights
alt text

Showcasing the best in hip hop, grime and battling.

Venues you do stuff at:
Market Bar.

Who else helps you run the nights?
Lock Up Recordings, E.Caine Design, Section 76, KashKam, Curtz, Window Kid, Kade.

Ten words that sum up the events you put on...
A local showcase of rap battles, grime clashes and music.

Describe the average punter at your nights...
Something a lot of people like is the variety of people at our events. With a mixture of old, young, male and female, you can’t be out of place at a Clash Money event.

Which local act has gone down best with your crowd and why?
That would either be Wariko clashing Dialect, or Scorzayzee battling Oshea. Both are two of the most high profile hip hop/grime artists to come out of Nottingham, both stepped up to the Clash Money stage to take on a big opponent, and both absolutely smashed it.

Which non-local act would you bring back again?
Black Josh and Sleazy F Baby. Legends.

If you could get a celebrity compere, who would you choose and why?
Eurgh [Don’t Flop], so we could tar and feather him.

Which booze sells best at your events?
Rum and Coke.

Tell us a crazy story that has happened at your events…
Personally, the craziest thing for me – and the thing I am most proud of – being an emcee in Nottingham for over ten years, is the unity the night has created among locals. I think anyone would know the reputation Nottingham has got over the years, and I don’t think a night like this could’ve happened ten years ago. Since Clash Money began, I have always worried trouble would kick off, but we have successfully gone over a year without an incident. I see people who would’ve been at war with each other before, having a laugh and getting on in the name of music.

If you weren’t a promoter what would you have ended up doing?
Drawing on boobs all day #Titheadz.

What other events in Nottingham do you love?
Tumble Audio, Rubberdub, Deeper Than Roots, Phlexx, Mimm, Dutty, Gangster Wraps, CSWS… There's too many, we’re a great city.
