Appearing in the UK for the first time in two decades, legendary NYC hip hop collective Juice Crew will appear on a run of just three shows this November, in London, Bristol and Manchester. Making their mark in the golden era of hip hop, six original artists from the collective will be reuniting for a run of special shows, including Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Master Ace, Craig G, MC Shan and Roxanne Shanté. They’ll be appearing at The Ritz on 13th November.
Born in the mid-eighties out of Queensbridge, NYC, the collective was founded by producer Marley Marl and radio DJ Mr. Magic, and would introduce New School artists to a wider audience including the ‘Clown Prince of Hip Hop’ Biz Markie. The crew found themselves with notorious beefs with other artists, primarily with rival Kool DJ Red Alert and South Bronx outfit Boogie Down Productions, also producing many answer records and diss tracks, including famous posse cut ‘The Symphony’, voted by Rolling Stone as the 48th greatest hip-hop song of all time.
The Legendary Juice Crew perform at The Ritz on Monday 13th November 2017. Tickets are available here.
