    4/28 - UK Takeover 4 Hip-Hop Fest Kicks Off In May

    UK Takeover 4 Hip-Hop Fest Kicks Off In May
    By Bhavna Malkani

    BBC 1xtra DJs Mistajam and Rodney P have signed on to host UK Takeover 4, one of the largest independent British Hip-Hop showcases.

    The main event will be held May 29 in Nottingham, at Rock City.

    Headlining artists include Kano, Klashnekoff, Jehst, Professor Green and MOBO award winner Sway.

    The showcase was launched in 2003 by Mistajam and UK Hip-Hop producer Joe Buddha.

    "The idea behind the UK Takeover was one that my business partner Joe Buhdha came up with after noticing that the crowds we were deejaying to across the country were noticeably segregated along lines of race, background and class depending on who else was on the bill with us," UK Takover creator Mistajam told AllHipHop.com.

    "While the audience [was] segregated, the music was the same so we decided to organize an event that would bring all factions of British Hip-Hop together," he added. "It's a concept that has worked and each event has gone from strength to strength, each one getting the cross section of the audience we wanted."

    The two day event will also consist of a 60-Second Assassin Emcee Battle, hosted by UK rapper Blade, as well as a chance for DJs to battle to appear at this year's DMC DJ Championship finals.

    An open mic session will also be available, as well as a chance for up-and-coming rappers to drop off their demos at a free BBC Radio 1Xtra seminar, which will take place before the event.

    BBC 1Xtra is also providing free bus services to Nottingham from many cities around the UK, including London, Bristol, Cambridge and Manchester.

    "It has grown to be the biggest single event in the UK Hip-Hop calendar," Mistajam told AllHipHop.com. "It will hopefully continue the tradition to strengthen and build the scene for the next generation of Hip-Hoppers and beyond."

    UK Takeover will air live on BBC 1Xtra on May 28 and 29.
