A new grime exhibit co-curated by Risky Roadz is coming to the Museum of London.
Called Grime Stories: From The Corner To The Mainstream, the new display will celebrate people, places and emblems of the grime scene as well as its east London roots.
The exhibit will feature commissioned films including clips from Skepta and DJ Slimzee as well as tributes to Rinse FM.
Also included in the exhibit are personal tributes and homage to Jammer’s iconic basement.
Announcing the news on Twitter, the Museum of London said, “we’re delighted to announce that our new display Grime Stories: from the corner to the mainstream will be launching on 17th June! We’re highlighting pioneers like Risky Roadz and Jammer, who helped grime flourish into a truly iconic London sound.”
Display co-producer Risky Roadz said, “Grime is a culture in itself and uniquely houses London’s attitude and DIY spirit. In two decades, it has given so much back, not only to the city, but to an international audience. Grime’s influence has changed music forever.
“This Museum of London display makes me feel proud to see grime’s legacy acknowledged, knowing how far the scene has come and how essential it is to London’s culture. Grime continues to push boundaries and Grime Stories: from the corner to the mainstream will bring its history and pioneering work to a whole new audience.”
Jammer said, “It’s official, Museum Of London we about to do the Mazza. Just know it’s about to be mad, Big up my guy Risky Roadz let’s go. This one’s for the culture!! We really do this.”
The exhibition will open on the 17th of June.
