a slice of history


Received this pic through the other day. Info is that it was copied from Mak 1's old site. A shot of some Glasgow writers from 1991. Absolute classic!

i'm one of those guys in their 40's (& i was the youngest in the crew at the time, no names, but some are now hitting 50). also there was the ii tone committee, one of the uk's finest britcore/hip hop groups. tech one (mc) & craigie. can't remember or make out anyone else, as was pointed out, i'm old. sace & easi went on to become NT (an amazing funk style group) ii tone & everyone else there were part of a larger collective known as the glasgow 141 posse & also the bench collective. sire (a dj) was a founding member of the 141 (formerly known as the criminal element posse). 141 is still around & active in the scottish hip hop scene & is probably the oldest crew in Scotland.
