BENEFITING: Outreach Uganda
My dear friend Lady Slyke from Kampala (Uganda) is seriously ill at the moment. She has to support two children and needs money for medicine. About a year ago she came to visit Copenhagen (Denmark) along with more talented Ugandan artists. They did Hip Hop workshops for vulnerable young danish kids, in a project called Ghetto Gourmet. I was called up by my friend Jospeh who wanted me to provide a beat for Lady Slyke while she was in our recording studio. So I grabbed a funky beat I made a couple of days before and went off to the studio. Despite never having heard the rhythms of 2-step (UK Garage), it took her about 30 minutes to write lyrics and she recorded everything in one take. I have a dream that the hard work she did in the box that day will pay her medicine. That's why I want to give this track away for free and hope that anybody will donate whatever they feel, everything counts. She is not only one of the greatest mc's I've ever had the pleasure of working with, her loving kindness and calm presence truly had a great impact on me. So please, support Lady Slyke and enjoy the worlds first Uganda Garage track - Thank you!
