Prince Rapid and Slixx from Ruff Sqwad established the Ruff Sqwad Arts Foundation to bring their experience of the underground Grime scene and DIY music making to disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in Poplar and beyond. They enable young people to develop their full potential through Grime music.
“You Can’t Handle the Booth” happens at Spotlight every Friday night attracting people from all over London; New Cross, Ilford, Croydon and all over Tower Hamlets this helps to tackle the problem of postcode boundaries which fetter the free movement of many young people throughout the area.
Their work with Spotlight HARCA has directly contributed to reducing crime levels by 40% in the Langdon Park area of Tower Hamlets. Reducing crime, through Grime. Love it.
Presented by: Renell Shaw, musician with Rudimental, producer, tai chi master
