NEW EVENT: SCRAMBLES4MONEY #DIVERGENCE | 27 JUNE 2015 | GRAYSCALE ART GALLERY


Africa's biggest battle rap league has another mind blowing international event heading your way!

Soul and Raptor (both from UK battle rap circuit Dont Flop) are squaring up against Fungus and Jake Baker respectively in what looks to be an unforgettable night of bars, mayhem and bruised egos. Jake is the newly crowned golden kid, the reigning Scrambles4Money champion and will be facing off against Cerebro at the next event after Divergence.

This is gonna be an all day event, so you know there's a healthy dose of battles, right? The Draft has been all flames recently and it's impressive to see that there will be 6 battles for the draft league. Relative newcomers, Jigsaw & Lawry are gonna draw a line in the sand to determine who really is the breakout kid. This event also sees the return of Atomik from a far too long hiatus, he faces TKO, another new face who has cemented his status and stature firmly within the draft roster.

Another highly anticipated bout is Fahrenheit and Demo Cast finally facing off at the finals of the Prove Your Worth tournament. It has been and arduos journey with both battlers leaving a trail of battlers that many imagined would be in the final of this tournament. If you follow both cats on Facebook you'll have been entertained by the back and forth jibs, jabs and jibes. The word on the street when it comes to this battle though seems to be very unanimously one sided. Everyone seem to agree that this one will be taken by..... nah, come to the battle and see for yourself, B!

The long awaited face-off between brothers in bars, Cerebro and Pava Gunz is finally here. Initially hinted at in mid-2014, fans have been going bonkers in anticipation. Already, opinions on the outcome of this match-up have proved to be very divisive. It's a hard battle to call, especially considering the fact that both these rappers are two of the three dopest cats at Scrambles. If i had to choose i'd say the winner of this battle will be Charlie Clips, 3 zip, bodybag! Just kidding, it's the cat with the fewer vowels in his name that's gonna take this...

Directed by Casual of Hieroglyphics, this clip comes on the heels of visuals for "Colorful Vocab" (watch), and "Somethin' Slick" (watch), both from his previous EP Somethin' SlickIssues & Episodes is out now on iTunes. "When I sat down to write, the first thing I thought of was writing some type of love song about a girl or whatever," Vocab says of the new single. "As I started writing I decided to abandoned that, and talk about how I embrace both the love and the hate I receive as an artist, and how using that can strengthen my progression to continue to move forward." Vocab describes Issues & Episodes as "something that I needed to make for myself. I've had a rough couple years and the album is really just me working through my own Issues and flexing a little at the same time."


KARIBA - A phenominal South African animated movie


I stumbled upon this little gem when trawling them internets yesterday. It is not much yet, being just a proof of concept trailer, but they definitely have my interest.

KARIBA, a story by the Blue Forrest Collective, is one of the three selections for a South African pitchs session at Annecy's MIFA market next month as part of a special South African call for entries.






Cartoon Brew, had this to say
Kariba was conceived as a modern African fairy tale, combining the historical events surrounding the building of the Zambezi river dam wall and the local legend of the river spirit that caused its destruction. “We are using the rich history and mythology around this event,” Snaddon said. “Our aim is to make something that stands out as being uniquely African, a film that respects both its source material, and its audience, while being hugely fun and entertaining.”
