Take Up Space: Shay D: Queens of Art


The Queens of Art tour celebrates the launch of Shay D’s recently released album Human Writes. Performing with DJ Ellie Prohan - both award winning, highly skilled women on top of their game in the hip hop and grime scene. They will join forces with local female rappers to celebrate sisterhood & high-quality performances within a genre that is stereotypically known to be misogynistic and male heavy.

British Iranian rapper & poet Shay D reached the top 20 of the UK Hip Hop iTunes chart and was playlisted on Spotify with her single Suffragettes which was the soundtrack to the Harvey Nichols Broken Windows campaign. Shay D has headlined Shambala, Elle A Soul Festival, WOW Festival, Glastonbury's Left Field Stage, handpicked by Billy Bragg, and she has a single with Boy George.
