Blood, Cypher and Ryme

Nestled in the East Midlands is the City of Nottingham. You'll have heard about it on the news. Firearms, drugs and any other bad publicity the national news can throw at it. It never used to be that way. Nottingham was and is famous for its lace. Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest were once Champions of Europe and it's famous for its shopping, the two shopping centres being the Broadmarsh and Victoria.

The Nottingham Panthers are a pretty succesful ice hockey team and if you're a fella there's more women than blokes. See it's not all bad! Joking aside, the City of Nottingham has been pretty much beaten up, chewed and spat out of late.

However, there's an underground movement within the city walls and it's live, kicking and full of positivity. Infact, there's a real buzz surrounding the Nottingham Hip Hop Scene. Three of the brightest stars of this movement are Blood, Cypher & Ryme.
