Rappers take part in a war of words at Islington youth centre
Young lyricists took part in a rap battle.
About 70 young people watched as three rappers Jazzmine Pryce (Frizz), Hermon Yemane (H-man) and Josh Arc� battled it out in heats at Toffee Park Youth Project in Ironmonger Row, Finsbury.
There was also a freestyle open mic for youngsters to show off their talents.
Senior youth worker at Toffee Park, Vikki Ball, said: “Thanks to the young people of Toffee Park and their hard work and dedication throughout the entire process, the rap battle was a resounding success for the project and all the young people involved.
“Their target of �100 was met through door donations and this will contribute to their ultimate goal of funding a young women’s weekend at an outdoor activity centre. Congratulations to the winners and the organisers, and we are all looking forward to the next fundraising event.”
