In early 2009 there was a distinct lack of Hip Hop nights in Oxford and Geenee, Kid Fury & Sultan felt the whole scene had a nasty stale smell around it. They decided to do something about this and started off by organising some one-off nights at various venues around Oxford. After the success of these Wordplay found a regular slot at The Cellar, a popular underground music venue in Oxford, evey other Wednesday throughout part of the year.

Wordplay continued to evolve and has become more than just a night, with a whole scene growing around it. Now with a regular Thursday night slot at The Cellar through the whole year and big things on the horizon it's an exciting time for Wordplay.
