Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer

On a one-man mission to introduce hip hop to the Queen’s English, Mr. B is delighted to present chap hop at 1pm in Finsbury Avenue Square for the City of London Festival

Having spent the best part of a decade bringing some manners back to popular culture, this dopest of fellows will entertain and amuse you with his ingenious stylings. Aiming to dazzle with dignity, Mr. B takes to the stage with his banjolele and stiff upper lip to perform ditties of pipe-smoking, high society and cricket, as well as some more well-known pieces from the world of hip hop, re-worked in true chap hop fashion.
