Red Bull Music Academy have released a short documenting the North London crew’s trip to the island earlier in the year.
Aptly titled ‘Jamaica Better Know’, the piece finds BBK heading to JA to brush up on their clashing skills as they prepare to defend their Red Bull Culture Clash title at Earls Court towards the end of next month. Learning from some of the originators of the game, as well as meeting new talent, Skepta, Jammer & co. take notes from the likes of U-Roy, Ricky Trooper, Popcaan and Newbaan. They also take time to watch a local clash and cut their own dubplate – with Shorty even trying his hand at a spot of daggering!
Now having learnt from the best, Boy Better Know are ready to take on a fresh set of challengers at the next Red Bull Culture Clash. The event at Earls Court 30th October will see BBK taking on NYC’s A$AP Mob, Jamaican vets Stone Love and Rebel Sound (Chase and Status, Rodigan and Shy FX), with Annie Mac and Doc Brown on hosting duties.
Boy Better Know are appearing at Red Bull Culture Clash, Thursday 30th October. Buy tickets here.
