Can You Stig It?
Well we went down to Bethnal Green yesterday and met Stig of the Dump, a self-confessed 'Homeless Microphonist' and one of the founding members of The Freestyle Masons - a bunch of battling MCs renowned for making up rhymes and reasons on the spot. An aggressive, insulting, large man on stage, he is in reality a gentle soul who can be seen wandering the streets of London (or just about any British city), looking for a floor to sleep on, and a fellow to rap with. We're gonna feature Stig on our show next week (wearing a hat he really didn't want to put on), along with an attempt by Donal at rapping, with very limited success. As a taster, here's a video of Stig and Respek BA in action in America. When I first watched this I couldn't help but laugh at Stig's initial fuck up, but he comes good in the end, demonstrating his characteristically acidic tongue.
