& Malik & The O.G’s

In 1973 a fast-talking, hustler by the name of Sport played a huge part in the birth of Hip-Hop. Brought to life by Lightnin’ Rod a.k.a Jalal of the Last Poets and backed by music provided by Kool & The Gang among others. His street tales of card games, throwing dice and chasing women influenced Wu Tang, Ice T, Public Enemy, Jungle Brothers, Black Moon and many more.

To mark the Hustlers Convention 40th anniversary, godfather of Rap Jalal, of The Last Poets, takes to the stage alongside the Jazz Warriors International Collective to bring this incredible story to life. It will be the first time ever the album has been performed since its release.

With support from the UK’s finest spoken word artist  – a student of Jalal & the late Gil Scott Heron – Malik & The O.G’s, this is a not-to-be missed event for all fans of Hip-Hop, spoken word and Jazz alike.

The performance comes as a new feature documentary, due for release next year, is in production on the pioneering role Jalal, and Hustlers Convention, have played in the history of rap.

(Please note this performance is to be filmed)
