LAYLOW LADBROKE GROVE

When Hip Hop first really arrived in London you could say it landed in Ladbroke Grove. Future 2000 did one of the 1st pieces there, and Sir Drew was 1 of the 1st MC'S from over here (born in LA) Check out the images below from Ladbroke Grove from the 50's, 60's,70's and 80's, with some sick graff and breaking footage. Shout out to all the Laylow legends...Sir Drew,Flex, Scam1, Tony Tone, Dj Kuku, Cash Crew, Kyza etc.
