A few weeks ago, artist Reuben Dangoor caused a frenzy on our Twitter timeline with his series of paintings depicting our favourite grime MCs as Landed Gentry from the 1700s. Skepta, Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, D Double E and Stormzy were all imagined in a way we’d not seen before, that cemented the high regard with which we hold them. Stormzy loved it so much, in fact, that he had prints of Reuben’s work on stage with him  during his recent tour of the UK.

Now, we have the opportunity to se these up close in the flesh as Reuben exhibits his Legends of the Scene at Tate Britain. His well-known grime paintings will be alongside an additional – as yet unveiled – piece, and will be at the gallery for the evening of Friday 4 December. Doors open at 6pm (exhibit is until 9.30pm) but you are advised to arrive early to ensure entry.
