Independent rap icon El-P will be dropping by Scala for one night only this September. With Cancer for Cure - his first full length rap album since 2007's critically acclaimed I'll Sleep When You're Dead ? released in 2012, it will be a chance for the audience to enjoy both new and old work from the hip-hop star.

Scala is located in central London, close to King's Cross station. If you're looking for a hotel near to Scala, check out our London Hotels page. 

 

About Scala

Housed inside the old King's Cross Cinema, the Scala might be a bit tattered around the edges but this only adds to its battered charm. The venue welcomed legends like Iggy Pop during the 70s, but didn't become a purely music venue until 1993. More about Scala
