Underground rapper, activist and spoken word artist B. Dolan will be performing at The Ferret in Preston on the 17th September as part of his huge 35 date European and US tour to promote his new album “Kill The Wolf”.
The album which came out in July has been 5 years in the making and was released via his friend and fan Scroobius Pip’s “Speech Development” record label. He has previously supported Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip on UK tours.
B. Dolan is an important and respected name in the independent hip-hop scene. Unlike rap’s ‘gangster’ image his music is inclusive and he supports LQBTQ people in hip-hop. He makes music to make people think about social issues but is wary of being considered a ‘conscious rapper’ and a peddler of ‘bumper sticker rap’ because these issues are important to him and he wouldn’t want anyone thinking he just got on that bandwagon to sell records.
Tickets for the gig are just £7 and there will be support acts including Buddy Peace, Mega Ran, Roman Scott and Razorrawks. You should go because it’s not often great hip-hop acts find their way all the way from the US to Preston.
