    I think 2020 street artists will start getting confidence in themselves and start their own channels up as soon as possible. The linkup/grm circuit is useful but it defo aint the end all be all, some artists are racking up 100k-mill plays on spotify with no video on them platforms. That russ/sl thing is sad but if you are dumb, you are gonna be sharkfood in the music biz. Right now a lot of rappers are signed and I know the twang is telling them its a 6 figure deal and giving them a couple bags advance.

    Professional Afro-Caribbean/Black Barbers London

    Even me too tbh. Once a week. My barber charges 12. I just give him 15. Maybe I buy food or snacks too. Since I take out a scores at the atm, I just consider the whole ordeal 20 quid. If I could do away with Travel&Time costs & for him to come to me instead, I’d happily give him the 20 instead. The convienience of it is very appealing to me & for someone to come to you and trim you up, it’s deec imo. I still wish I lived near my barbers though lol

    Any of you guys used the trim it app? £10 off with this https://n8wr2.app.goo.gl/CUhp Black Mobile barber app with the barbershop in the van. Cost 22 a trim but the fact I can get a trim outside my work at lunch or outside my yard is very appealing. I absolutely hate wasting time so this works perfectly for me

    Big market for alternates to uni right now, esp if you can tie it in with apprenticeships and get the govt. funding too

    Learning To Code

    Started reading about programming in early 2017 since I had a lot of time on my hands & wanted to do something legitimate. Messed around with C#, moved on to Javascript, just making stuff and practicing. Saw a tweet around Nov/Dec 2017 from a London Bootcamp doing free places for underrepresented people in tech, so I applied, had to pass a test and an interview and I got through. They were experimenting with race & class diversity and wanted to see if they can get the 15 people they selected to mid-level developers in a year+ time. We also got paid for up to 3 months for every month we didn't get employed afterward. I was a bit skeptical because I only had A-levels and no real work experience meanwhile the cohort was filled with people with a lot of corporate experience, some Oxbridge grads or mostly top 20 uni people. Breezed through the course (started in Feb this year), they taught me about all that agile malarkey, TDD, OOP, Functional Programming, all the soft skills etc. I think one of most important thing is building a good portfolio of work and learning about TDD and testing software. Most people who are learning at home are not teaching themselves Test-driven development so if you are self-taught it is important to learn this. A lot of companies are actually hiring juniors who know how to TDD, to help develop that culture in these places to learn all that, it's important and will give you a competitive edge. It's defo a big selling point. Getting regular feedback on your code is the MOST important thing. Code with people, look up at online programming communities on slack or real-life meetups, get friendly with some people who will help you out. You need that regular feedback to level up as quick as possible. That's how they do it at the boot-camps, you have your code, the way you work and communicate reviewed by your peers and coaches multiple times a day sometimes(informally, everybody is taught to be open to constructive criticism after you work with them) so you are used to someone picking up on something and then you can correct it. The more of these feedback loops you go through, the quicker you will get better. (Applies to other stuff too). So imagine how many times you go through this to get people to a work-ready level after 4+ months. If you are self-taught and can incorporate those things into how you are learning, it will make your pathway to getting hired much more quickly than if you didn't. That's the sauce they use. If somebody is trying to set out a junior or entry level learning path or not sure what they should learn moving forward (concept wise) I can write a quick list of things to have covered

    Just accepted my job offer & I start in September! Working with Javascript, React, Node, GraphQL etc. All up my alley. Also free to switch into other departments if I get bored, or want to switch to more back-end stuff. Been a mad journey & I'm so glad I stuck it through. There are some sick opportunities out there if you look for them.

    Funny cos when slim was on 1xtra he didn't sound nothing like them, he sounds like he is his own entity, but on tunes he starts channeling them mans energies Hopefully he clocks what he is subconciously doing and corrects it cos i think he is sick
