Positive Influence: Ragz-Cv Launches Ep Raising Awareness Of Alzheimers
In an effort to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s, Ryan Junior Matthews-Robinson, better known as Ragz-CV, has unleashed the ‘Paying Homage to the King E.P’ – a revamping of his grandfather Robbie ‘King’ Robinson’s music…
“I believe music is a great way of grabbing people’s attention for a noble cause,” said the South London rapper on his choice of approach. Ryan has since obtained support from the Alzheimers Society after a visit to his grandparents and the deterioration of his grandmother, who is currently suffering from the disease, spurred him to get in contact with them.
Ryan said of the EP: “It has a real jazz feel which my granddad brings with his production and with my touch it’s just the right blend of old school and new school, which I call jazz-rap.”
Ryan has since launched an event called ‘Positive Influence,’ which, at £5 a ticket, sees a host of talented rappers, comedians, singers and poets come together. The event will also serve as a launch party for the E.P as well as a fundraising event for Alzheimer’s.
It takes place at Brixton Jamm on Monday 10 September, from 7pm to midnight.
