VIDEO: BEHIND THE BARS: Rewd Adams


Rewd passed through Roundhouse Radio a couple of weeks ago to lace Fresh Cuts with his presence on the inaugural Behind The Bars session. The idea came from an afternoon me and Chinners spent with Rewd last year, back when he called himself Skandal, flicking through some classic Hip-Hop beats and lamenting that we didn't have the time for him to write fresh bars to some old favourites.

Fast forward a few months and we decided to get some of the country's best MCs and rappers (they're the same thing, but I digress) into our studio, give them the time to write something fresh, exclusively for us, to a classic beat they've always wanted to murder, and document the whole process.

This footage ended up distorting that original idea slightly - there's not quite as much coverage of the beat selection and writing process as I originally envisioned, but there's no doubt Rewd duppied this Dr Dre produced instrumental (for those who don't know, the beat is Jay-Z's Trouble from comeback album Kingdom Come). The wordplay is sick.
