Win a pair of VIP tickets to see TY at London’s Jazz Cafe PLUS signed adidas Originals gear!
Born and bred in South London, TY’s initial taste of hip-hop came in the form of Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh’s 1985 ground-breaking hit The Show, but it was Break Machine and Cookie Crew that inspired him to pursue the path of a B-Boy and ultimatly a career in hip-hop. Mastering breakdancing, learning sound engineering and producing, TY started to develop the ability to deliver rhymes with a witty ferocity. One of the most revolutionary rappers on the British hip-hop scene, the Mercury Prize nominee has established a legacy through his music, persona and worldwide shows, countless appearances and working relationships with luminaries such as De La Soul, Estelle, Scratch Perverts, Talib Kweli and Black Twang amongst others, both in front and behind the mixing desk.
We’ve teamed up with TY and adidas Originals to offer you the chance to win a pair of V.I.P. tickets to see TY live at London’s legendary Jazz Cafe on Monday 31st May 2010. You’ll also get to meet the hip-hop star after the gig, get hooked up with some signed adidas Originals gear and receive a signed copy of his new album ‘Special Kind of Fool’.
