What day is it…
Yes, it’s Tune for Tuesday. This week we have Professor Green!
Professor Green othwise known as Stephen Manderson. He started rapping by chance as he realised he was good at freestyling whilst at a friends house, from this point his passion for rap escalated. Stephen went on to win the inaugural Jump Off MySpace rap battle tournament in July 2008 before getting a record deal.
Stephen’s nickname is an indication of his past. He used to sell weed when he was younger earning him the name ‘Green’ (AKA weed) and ‘Professor’ came from the fact that he’s extremely intelligent.
I love his style, his lyrics are witty and hilarious. I couldn’t choose just one song (as you can see this is becoming a regular pattern) so here are three of my favorite tracks!
‘Upper Clapton’ (Everyone loves a bit of classical rap), ‘Monster‘ and ‘At you convenience‘.
