Becomes A British Hip Hop Arena”
Dizzie Rascal, a British hip hop artist, performed
at Southpaw in Park Slope, Brooklyn on March
11th. The crowd consisted of mostly British
people ranging from eighteen to thirty-five
years old and the place was jam-packed.
Dizzie Rascal has quite a following in England.
It seemed as if all of the British people living
in New York attended this show. Coming from
a lover of east and west coast hip-hop coupled
with the fact that New York standards for live
hip hop is up there, I wasn’t impressed.
However, hip-hop tells a different cultural
experience depending on the origin of the artist.
Perhaps if I could have understood what the
rapper was saying, I might have had a better
idea if it was cool or not.

The venue delivered a cool vibe due to its
many record album covers on the walls and pinball
machines in the corners.
Either way, the crowd loved the show.
