Some of the biggest
names in Swedish Hip-Hop will perform tomorrow night (Dec. 12) in New York at
Juju Records, Ink Productions
and the WESC clothing line will showcase the talents of some of Sweden’s
biggest acts – some for the first time in New York.
The night will include performances
by Timbuktu, Looptroop, Chords, Spotrunnaz & Damn.
Currently residing in New
York, Timbuktu is one of Sweden’s biggest Hip-Hop acts, with five successful
albums to his name.
He has had several hit singles
from different albums that have made it big in both Sweden and Norway, and his
most recent release Alla vill till himmelen men ingen vill dö (Everybody
Wants To Go To Heaven) has gone gold in both countries.
"It's a personal triumph
for us to even be playing here in New York,” Timbuktu told AllHipHop.com.
“I still can't really believe it. It's just f**king amazing!”
Timbuktu has been touring
all year with Damn and Chords. With sold out shows all over Scandinavia, Timbuktu,
Damn, and Chords have received over the top reviews for their live shows.
Chords is preparing to release
his United States debut, The Garden Around the Mansion, in 2006. The album is already available
Other acts in the lineup
include Looptroop, an internationally known group that has sold hundreds of
thousands of records and Spotrunnaz, a group that has been labeled one of Sweden’s
