Cappo | TT - London


On Tuesday we were very pleased to welcome Nottingham artist & UK legend, Cappo to a packed Cellar Bar for TT Live Sessions.


Accompanied by Supreme Eteng on the keys, Cappo introduced the new version of himself, a reimagining that radiates across his latest LP, Canon. Following the opening track, Pain, he started things off by stating “This is an acoustic version of the mature Cappo. Usually I go in gung-ho and that’s what I’m gonna do now, kind of two sides of myself battling, let’s see if we can make it work.”

Cappo’s wordplay shone throughout the set with tracks like Yardbird proving particularly powerful. The multilayered bars and double entendres on show helped to truly highlight the level this artist sits within some of the best lyricists this country has ever produced.

Supreme Eteng’s musical direction and keys playing was delightful throughout, showing us his talent and really showcasing the song writing and production from the project’s producer Kong The Artisan.

Always the
first Tuesday
of the month

Free Entry

Visionary Hip Hop artist, author and Blah Records founder Lee Scott joined Cappo for the first ever performance of Badlands; be sure to check out the visual masterpiece Cappo has released with Lee for this track, shot overlooking Ratcliffe Power Station.

Cappo finished the set with Me, Myself & Irene, a reflective, but wholly optimistic study of self-love set to an infectious track from Kong The Artisan. Cappo’s introspective lyricism glided over a beat peppered with catchy piano riffs and he led the crowd into an enthusiastic call and response on the track’s chorus, finishing the show on a high.

As an LP, Canon celebrates the Midlands and the North so it was a huge privilege that Cappo travelled with his live show down to London. The LP is a masterpiece and we don’t say that lightly, proving that even with an impressive catalogue under his belt, Cappo’s artistry goes from strength to strength.

Chris P Cuts played new and classic records either side of the live set, digging into some DJ Spinna, Citizen Kane and Declaime. The crowd were wonderful to host and Cappo had them in his palm for every word. Bags containing Cappo’s discography’s waiting to be signed accompanied some guests.

A massive thanks to Cappo for blessing us with an incredible performance and to everyone who made it down.
