Professor Green in New Cross

Professor Green was spotted in New Cross last week, including at the Hill Station cafe in Kitto Road. As he was also tweeting about house hunting last week, the rumour has started that he was looking to buy a house in the area. We shall see... Maybe Millie Mackintosh can move in too - bring on 'Made in Telegraph Hill'.

Of course there are musical factors that might attract Professor Green to the far-famed Blue Borough. He has recently recorded a track with Lewisham rapper Dru Blu.

And did you know that on one of his early tracks, he sampled an anarcho-punk classic by a band who once lived in Forest Hill?

Hard Night Out (2009) samples Tube Disasters (1981) by Flux of Pink Indians. As mentioned here before, Derek Birkett from the band lived in Forest Hill in the 1980s and built up his One Little Indian records from there, helping to launch Bjork's solo career among other things
