A Pais­ley newsagent has teamed up with bosses at a Pais­ley venue to pro­mote a rap and hip-hop event.

Staff at The Bun­ga­low, in Shut­tle Street, will work with Rehman Afzal – who owns con­ve­nience store RSA – along­side or­gan­iser Dar­ren Scott present‘Ground Zero’.

It will be held in the Shut­tle Street venue on Satur­day, July 8, from 8pm.

An or­gan­iser said:“Crowds can ex­pect to wit­ness rap bat­tles be­tween 12 dif­fer­ent MCs through-out the night and the win­ner be­ing pre­sented with a £200 cash prize.

“Lo­cal DJ‘Big Div’will be launch­ing sounds all night long, with more ad­di­tions to the night due to be an­nounced over the com­ing weeks. Beat­box­ers are also wel­come to take to the stage.

“Rehman added:“I have al­ways been in­ter­ested in ex­pres­sive mu­sic such as hip hop and rap.

“The Scot­tish scene in com­par­i­son to the English scene has been lack­ing in the main­stream.

“Pais­ley is an in­te­gral mu­si­cal hub in Scot­land it would only be fit­ting for the Scot­tish tal­ents to take cen­tre stage in the Bun­ga­low Pais­ley, which will no doubt cre­ate noise and in­spire peo­ple.

“Pais­ley hav­ing had tur­bu­lent times so­cially, mu­sic such as this can unite peo­ple and in many oc­ca­sions be help­ful to the mind and soul.”
