Noisia Farewell Tour


28 Nov 21 / 12pm – 6am

Roots Manuva is a rapper hailing from London, England who was born on September 8th, 1972. Since debuting in 1994 he has released eight studio albums and is hailed as one of the most respected and acclaimed English rappers of all time.

Born Rodney Smith in Stockwell, London, Roots Manuva’s passion for music stems from walking past a sound system constructed in a local skate park when he was a child. Even at such a young age, he found that the music that he was hearing felt “life-giving”, in his words, and he was captivated by it. Fast forward to 1994 and Smith was making his rapping debut with the hip-hop collective IQ Procedure, before releasing his debut solo EP “Next Type Of Motion” in 1995, under the stage name Roots Manuva. He spent the next four years making a name for himself with solo singles and collaborations, before releasing his debut solo album “Brand New Second Hand” in 1999.
