DROP. | One Acen and JB Scofield
Fri Nov 22 @ 11.00 pm - Sat Nov 23 @ 4.00 am£10 – £14
Following a show-stopping season featuring the scene’s best talent and a series of sell out shows, we are bringing you one of the biggest talents from the UK Scene. One Acen is coming to York for a show-stopping event presented by DROP, coming your way on the 22nd of November 2019.
Born and raised in Tottenham, One Acen began rapping at the age of 13 and by 2015, he’d released over 5 projects under his former names, ‘Youngace’ and ‘Acen’. His hit collaboration with Hardy Caprio ‘Unsigned’ saw his career take off to another level.
Taking the lessons learned in his formative years and applying them to the Afro-influenced R&B and rap of 2019, One Acen has tapped into a guaranteed recipe for success. Of course, it helps that chart-topping hooks seem to come so naturally to him. His latest single, “Xpensive Habits”, is essentially the signature One Acen tune: slick melodies, vibrant production and an instantly likeable charm.
With a string of hits with frequent collaborator Hardy Caprio (“Rolling”, “EIO”, “Best Life”) under his belt, not to mention team-ups with WSTRN (“Vice Versa”), Tion Wayne (“2/10”), Yungen (“Miss Diva” and “Pricey”) and Chip (“Your Story”), it’s also a timely reminder that he’s more than capable of knocking it out of the park by himself.
In addition, JB Scofield – the rising talent from Leicester – will also be shutting Fibbers down, fresh off release of his massive his summer anthem ‘Stretch It’.
This event is being produced in collaboration with the University of York Hip Hop Society.
