Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

#Rakim hits the UK...25th anniversary tour

Rakim, the microphone fiend, is in the UK!

And sources tell me he's hitting my hometown of Bristol this Saturday, May 7th, for his "Paid in Full" 25th anniversary concert (even though Eric B won't be on stage.) So if you're within 50 miles you have to reach and support. It's gonna be one hell of a show....Rahzel (of The Roots) and Rakim. Hot!

"In the history of Hip-Hop, few artists have had as great an impact on the development and progression of the art form's lyrical style as Rakim. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of 'Paid in Full', consistently regarded as the greatest Hip Hop album of all time - and to celebrate and commemorate, Rakim plays Bristol for the first time ever - on Saturday May 7th."

Tickets are £22.50 (stbf) - available from The O2 Academy Box Office and these fine outlets:
