Speech Debelle Interview
I caught up with Speech Debelle a couple of weeks after her Mercury win. I was initially anticipating interview overload on her part but to her credit we had an enjoyable little chat about hip hop, education and Mcdonald’s amongst other things.
She played Night & Day Cafe in Manchester following our natter, and certainly delivered the goods in terms of performance and audience interaction. Considering the Mercury win and small venue however, I was a bit gutted to see the place wasn’t rammed – what does a hip hopper have to do to fill a place out, eh?
