Big Up Eighteen ~ The Spoken Word Issue

Unspoken Word of the Aeon to come,
Black as molasses, as nuclear bomb,
As the blood in the septic heart of the brave new world to come,
Unconditional love come with death to each and every one.

“The Rope Tightens”

Big Up 18 – The Spoken Word issue – is dedicated to MCs, hosts, poets, lyricists, prophets: masters of spoken word. We learn their lyrics and quietly repeat them as if they’re prayers. Sometimes they pop up in our heads at an unexpected moment and make perfect sense. Sometimes they help us through the dark times, sometimes they reflect the state of the generation, push us to embark on heroic adventures or bring a sense of nostalgia for the days that used to be.

The new issue has all sorts of surprises: a crossword puzzle for the baseheads; #AskPokes feature, shining the light on his ‘No Shirt in a Rave’ policy; an interview with Trim about the gimmick artists in the scene; the most impressive chalkboard artists of the modern day; a reminiscing piece of the past five decades of the revolutionary lyrics feat. The Last Poets, Kraftwerk, Tricky, Spaceape and Novelist; a chat with Miss Red touching up on sexism, dumb comparisons and underground scene in Haifa; SP:MC feature with a helpful advice from the MC’s frontline; Wasted Rita genius and at time inappropriate artwork, and more more more.
