Event description

Description

On 24th May at the Mockingbird Cinema, Custard Factory, Digbeth, Brum based wordsmith The Praying Mantis is launching his new album, The Legend of One.

Support will be provided by Kapes and Michael Personne and there will be guest appearances from Lorna Harris, Dark Water Quartz, Francis Mott and Maxine Brooks, alongside our house band.

Joel Wilson’s recent review of Mantis’ latest album should give a flavour of what to expect:

‘The Legend of One is the work of a rap veteran. There’s some of the funk-fuelled, emphatic punctuation of Masta Ace, the furrowed brow intensity of Inspectah Deck and the brimstone wit of Chester P. The producers are magpies, finding gems from hip-hop’s NYC golden age as well as sharp, glittering sounds from various UK hip-hop junk shops.’

But there's no better place to investigate Mantis' sound than the album's lead single, RIP:
