Wonderland Sessions takes to the Thames to capture something special from rap artist Blizzard.
At only 19, Blizzard is an artist with 8 years experience under his cap. Winning an EA competition at age 11 to feature in a professionally produced music video; Bradley ‘Blizzard’ Green won the attention of the urban scene and the respect of its critics. With his rap battles on the Don’t Flop scene racking up thousands of views and his release of ‘Sooner Than Never’ going to number 1 in the hip hop charts, it’s almost of no surprise that his latest EP, ‘Testing the Water’ did just the same – although reaching that position in just 12 hours was perhaps somewhat unexpected.
An accomplished rap artist with intimidating freestyle skills, Blizzard strives to prove he’s even more than that; and so, when we met with him on a crisp day aboard a Thames moored boat, he chose to cover ‘This Charming Man’ by The Smiths…
