Derek Wiltshire and Reckless Rai from the award nominated Mostly Lit podcast host Jeffrey Boakye (author of Hold Tight) and a special guest. Hold Tight is a love letter to Grime, the music, the culture and the artists. It is also an exploration on what it is to be a black man growing up in Britain in the 21st Century. We’ll discuss everything from jungle, ragga and UK garage to hip/hop & grime, with inevitable sideroads into concepts of masculinity, black culture in Britain and what Grime’s major shift to a powerful mainstream force means to the future of the UK.Buy tickets
