- 26 July 2017
Rising star of grime will play nine shows across October and November
The 26-year-old is considered a key figure in a grime revival that's seen seen the genre explode across the country and the world, with Skepta claiming last year's Mercury prize for Konichiwa and Kano nominated for the same award for Made in the Manor.
Malone, born Aaron Davis, is his own man though. He dropped his first mixtape, SwaggaMan, in 2010 and followed it up making a name for himself doing freestyle rap on YouTube channels, and causing a stir after starting beef with MC Chip.
He's released three top 10 extended plays, 2015's Walk With Me, 2016's Facing Time and 2017's King of the North and from here, the only way is up.
