James Jeffrey is organising the Hip-Hop Freestyle Battle event, which will be held in Wishaw on February 9.

It will see rappers from across the country battle it out in front of a panel of industry experts.

Such an event has never been held in Lanarkshire before.

And he is hoping that by attracting big names from across the country it will be the first of many to be held in this area.
