Once again The Doctor’s Orders own Spin Doctor will also be hosting the ever popular Hip-Hop Pub Quiz for what is now the 6th time. It has been a runaway success since it’s first installment in July 2009. The idea is simple really, to run a pub quiz with the typical kinds of rounds you would expect (film, sports, picture etc etc) but just about Hip-Hop. The venue is Big Chilli House in North London, and it’s free entry for people attending. However tickets are £2.00 per player and teams are limited to six players. You can view the promotional flyer for The Doctors Orders – Hip Hop Pub Quiz and the website link above.
Here is a brand new track from Yungun titled “The Good Ones” which is a tribute to two Hip-Hop legelds (Big L and J Dilla) who both passed away in February. As Yungun quotes RZA “It’s always the good ones that have to die” Yungun is in no way using this song for promotional purposes, but only as a tribute to two Hip-Hop pioneers who shaped the industry for the better. Yungun is performing at the J Dilla foundation charity event on Sunday 6th Feb “J Dilla Changed My Life” which is presented by The Doctors Orders in Kings Cross, London. You can view the artwork and listen to Yungun – The Good Ones on the audio player below.
