Big H releases Public Statement regarding Lord of The Mics Clash.
BIG H VS P MONEY
Thank you to those who came down for LOTM6 yesterday to support grime music. Grime, unfortunately, remains a niche genre, so we’re keen to show our thanks to everyone who is willing to spend their own money on the scene.
Despite expensive tickets, that were in high-demand, the turnout was brilliant.
Today, here at Inside Music, we wanted to address some of the issues raised over the past 24 hours over exactly what happened during Big H’s clash with P Money.
A number of news reports falsely indicated that H “spat two lyrics and left the stage”. They also indicated that “one round in and P Money had ﬁred enough verbal shots to get Big H riled to the point of no reply”. Neither of these claims are true. H walked off after three rounds. He got the majority of his lyrics out and was delighted to hear the crowd booing his opponent for large swathes of the clash.
Unfortunately, due to an excitable crowd, much of the rest of the clash was unheard – a huge shame. We are sure that on the DVD, you will be able to hear H’s lyrics and be able to compare them with P Money’s in a listening-friendly environment. We had been told before the clash that the crowd would be forced to remain quiet – a sentiment that Jammer reiterated toward the end of the clash. Silence was, unfortunately, inevitably impossible – making things difﬁcult for both sides.
It is unfortunate that, despite an overwhelming number of people considering H to have won the opening round, he was unable to really show what he was really made of. We would like to attempt to give back to some of the faithful fans that attended yesterday.
We are very disappointed to hear that some were unhappy regarding H’s decision to ﬁnish the clash where he did. Therefore, we are offering an open invitation to P Money,
