So apart from being one of the best UK rappers out there right now, Northampton’s slowthai is a man of his word. Making his name as a true working class and socially conscious rapper, he’s now announced a £5 tour.

The rapper will play a handful of dates across the UK for £5 entry. The five dates are scheduled to promote his record Nothing Grate About Britain as part of his ‘Bet Ya A £5er’ tour. Slowthai has been pushing a veracious and honest path, using his position to highlight personal and public issues. Now he’s backing music venues by bringing a tour to their door for half the price.

The tour follows the 99p tour which saw slowthai perform at some of Britain’s forgotten venues. A special mention to South Shields’ Trimmers Arms in the backwaters of North East of England.

His ‘Bet Ya A £5er’ kicks off in Newcastle in November and is largely placed to be one of the most intense and interesting tours of the year. The tour will finish with his biggest show to date at the 02 Academy Brixton.
