Editorial: TY

By on 30/05/2010. Posted in , , , .

This shoot is for this exciting project I got involved in some time ago called Beatnik Online Magazine. TY being such a huge inspiration for our Editor, Ali, it was a little bit of a big deal. I mean, we really wanted to get it right. We knew the concept was good, and although the location fell through at the last minute, Ali found the best replacement.

BACKGROUND: “Massive artist, mercury nominated – few uk rappers have such a influence on UK Black music. Plus he is one of my favourite artists so the piece is close to my heart. Listen to the Album ‘Special Kind of Fool’ .and  a couple of extra tracks from previous albums. he has worked with De la soul, Arrested Development amongst others.”

here are some good videos:

CONCEPT: Intimate.. drinking tea… sitting at table of a typically English cafe. Maybe eating a platter of Sausage and Mash. Some candids and a couple of photos of the interview.



RESULT: With the feature from the interview, in here, on beatnik Online! You can check out more about TY on his website and follow him on Twitter. Put the volume up!
