Grime musicians in London risk being stifled by prejudice

Grime musicians in the capital risk being stifled by prejudice.

It suggested that police and local authorities were affecting Grime musicians ability to thrive, by cancelling gigs at short notice citing safety concerns.

We've spoken to one of the London MPs involved in the report, and an artist from the capital who shared his account of what it was like to book gigs.
