It’s been a couple of years in the works, and my boy, Air Adam has put in one hell of a shift in bringing this project to fruition. Manchester Marauders is a celebration of Manchester hip hop, through the lens of the scene’s most renowned photographer. Adam managed to gather together forty-nine members of the Manchester hip hop community and capture their images in order to create a piece paying homage to A Tribe Called Quest’s classic album Midnight Marauders.
The work will be unveiled at the opening night of the exhibit at Manchester’s 2022nq gallery, where 12″ x 12″ prints will be available to purchase. There will also be DJs on the night, including – we are honoured to say – NouGold’s DJ A-UP, Lee Majors (More Bounce) and more. Furthermore, there will by a cypher on the night, which will consist of the Marauder MCs, themselves.

As well as the option to purchase a print, Adam has screen printed a very limited run of Manchester Marauder tees. If you would like to purchase one, contact Adam through his Facebook page.
A pat on the back and a round of applause for Air Adam for not only creating this event but for being an essential pillar of the Manchester hip hop community.
50 podcasts deep, Air Adam continues to delve and dig through his never-ending record crates. As per usual he brings the heat with stone-cold classics, rarities, b-sides and more. An essential hip hop education.
