RWD Issue 146: April 2014 (w/ Joey Bada$$)
Finally festival season is upon us, my favourite time of the year. Not because we get at least one weekend of sunshine – that we all complain about because we’re British and therefore miserable – but it’s a chance to see artists in their element.
So there’s no surprise that Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ covers our annual festival issue. For those that haven’t seen him perform, don’t think he’s anything close to subdued; I’ve witnessed the rapper kill stages, where girls literally left with the barriers imprinted into their chests and maybe even a clump of Joey’s ‘fro from all the reckless stage diving. In short, man knows how to rock a mic and crowd with finesse. Within our in-depth festival guide, expect Big Narstie to bless you with his Do’s and Don’ts, then Wilkinson, Pusha T and D’Banj give you their most memorable moments whilst DJ Target unleashes his very own festival survival kit.
Elsewhere, we highlight chicks doing their thing, whether in the club, on the international circuit or out in the blogosphere, it’s time to take notice of these singers. Kidnap Kid tells us why he’s finally #ReadyForAnything, Bipolar Sunshine blows up and it’s only right we catch up with funny man Kevin Hart every time he steps foot on British soil – it just so happens that his boy Ice Cube was riding along too. Last but not least, take note all you broke bloggers and writers who are attempting to pay bills with thin air as Music Week’s Rhian Jones speaks out and lets you know just how you can get yours.
Until next month you can catch me at the bar, mine’s a Patron.
