Come and find out at this special fancy dress Halloween edition of Inua Ellams’ Rhythm and Poetry Party. Presented in collaboration with gal-dem.

Missy Elliott is a living legend, one of the most cherished in hip-hop history. Her first solo record Supa Dupa Fly debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200, silencing her harshest critics. Her inimitable flow, iconic style and unforgettable videos won her legions of fans across the globe.

In collaboration with gal-dem, the online and print magazine produced by women and non-binary people of colour, this special R.A.P Party gathers an all-women line-up of incredible contemporary poets to create and share new verse in response Missy’s greatest hits.

To further celebrate Missy’s iconic style, this event doubles up as Hip-Hop x Halloween x Fancy Dress party, with exclusive prizes for the best dressed.
