In 2006, Nas proclaimed that hip-hop was dead. In 2013, scores of artists have been coming together for a series of live shows to prove that hip-hop music is still very much alive. These shows are proudly called Hip-Hop Isn’t Dead. On its third night, Hip-Hop Isn’t Dead has already been upgraded to a larger venue, The Garage in Islington. The line-up combined some of the biggest acts from the first two nights such as Genesis Elijah and Black the Ripper and welcomed some new faces from around the UK including Northern duo Leddie and Smoggy.
