Pappzd caught up with actor and artist, Bashy this Friday in Notting Hill as he joined Akaka and The Hip Hop Shakespeare Company to perform for First Direct’s Dialogue Festival.

Bashy has been away for a while, but he’s been a very busy man. With his new mixtape Crunchie now available for download Bashy also told us he has a part in a BBC adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, in which he plays a loan shark named Shylock.

Bashy also mentioned he’s been filming a number of movies, but was being very tight lipped about it. All we managed to get out of him was boxing, so we can look forward to a topless Bashy flashing his guns soon.
