I got an email last week from the Dirty Protest gang asking me if I'd like to write a short play for their Dirty, Gifted and Welsh event this year. And this is how I felt-

"What if my play's crap?"

I won't make an epic out of this but the time has come for change and I'm putting the name Ruffstylz to bed. I'm proud of what I've put out, it's done what it needed to do but I want something that's more me. What I plan to do is release everything that's left in a 'The Death Of Ruffstylz' series. We'll put them out as and when we can, including my best track so far - Horserider, featuring one of my favourite emcees of all time, Gift Of Gab from Blackalicious. I don't know how long it'll… Continue

Swansea’s High Street, once the backbone of the city centre, is viewed as no-go area for some. With the city centre’s commercial district relocated after the Blitz and the springing up of out-of-town shops from the 80’s onwards the area has slowly suffered, and amid accusations of neglect and mismanagement the area has built a reputation as the disappointing entrance to Wales’…
