Yesterday was day two of London’s Wireless Festival at Hyde Park and US rappers Missy Elliot and Snoop Dogg were two of the biggest highlights of the day.
I love love love Missy, she’s definitely one of my favourite female rappers, but her set as Wireless was not her greatest show. She was 15 minutes late, which agitated some revellers. And then there were some heckles and boo’s from the crowd, because Missy’s dancers were wearing German branded Adidas tracksuits (last week Germany destroyed England 4-1 at the world cup and sent us packing home). Due to her late start, organisers abruptly cut off Missy’s set mid-song, to her and the crowds surprise. Sources claim she was furious backstage.
Snoop Dogg’s set on the other hand was less drama and a definite crowd pleaser. The West Coast rapper belted hits than span from over 15 years. The guy’s an OG and lifted the whole of Hyde Park’s spirits. Gin and Juice was a big crowd favourite.
