Made a few years ago on a budget of £3.60, here it is at last! The Proper Bristol Hip Hop movie! It’s the story of Hip Hop in the UK as told by a handful of people from Bristol who were there at the beginning. It was made for nothing and made nothing out of it,t goes on a bit, but please give it a chance, you might learn something! Peace!

Thought it would be good to brighten up what seems to be starting out as quite a grey day here in Bristol and lighten the mood after yesterday’s last post.
Came across this on a friends facebook wall last night and it made made me smile.
The International Meeting of Styles (MOS) brings aerosol artists and the public together to experience live aerosol art and the creative process. It provides a focal point for urban street culture and a platform for aerosol art to reach the larger community. It is an event inspired by creativity and cultural exchange.
The original MOS originates from Germany and has a worldwide reputation and respect because of its message and authentic style. Since it’s inception it now features in 17 cities around the world.
In October 2011 End of the Line presents the British edition of Meeting of Styles with its 4th event in London. This annual event has grown from 15 artists and one main wall in its first year to a full scale outdoor block party and street exhibition of 60 artists in 2010.
This years meeting, which has a great line up, will be held on October 8th at The Studios, Hornsey Street, Islington, N7 8GR.

At 6pm on Friday 12th November Weapon of Choice Gallery will be throwing open their doors to the first solo show from the artist ‘Lokey’. Lokey was born and raised in Bristol. His passion for graffiti started in the mid 1980’s following a chance encounter in a local park with some break-dancing kids who had returned from their American holiday armed with hip-hop mix tapes and photographs of graffiti.
Lokey is a product of the Kingswood Hip Hop scene that nurtured the likes of Deed, Cheo, Kato and Soker. The youngest of the Veterans of Bristol writers he has been painting the streets for the last twenty years during which time he has been a member of Bad Applez, Dry Breadz, collaborated with many of the big names in graffiti (including Banksy) and is now considered one of the best 3D letter writers around.
This show is an exhibition of artworks adapted from Lokey’s black books, his inspiration for his graffiti, and an insight into his imagination. This one’s not to be missed!
Show runs until the 5th of December 2010.
