For the Wembley final, Newcastle Makina MC Tazo creates a rhyme

Tazo MC

Before their trip to Wembley, a Makina rapper created his own ode to his beloved Newcastle United.

After the Magpies qualified for the Carabao Cup final, one of MC Tazo's friends suggested he record something, the Gateshead resident from Felling said.

Makina techno music, which has its roots in Spain from the 1990s, is hugely popular in the North East.

Before "falling in love with" it, MC Tazo, real name Kevin Hogg, said he grew up listening to it.

It's been an underground phenomenon in the North East for 20 years, but as more well-known DJs have played Makina over time, it has become more mainstream, according to him.

"You'll need to do a rhyme about Wembley," one of my friends told me after they defeated Southampton, so I immediately wrote it to a track I was already working on while I was in my work van.

"When I got home, I told the kids we were going to make a TikTok video just for fun, and it just kind of snowballed from there. ".

Together with his sons, MC Tazo will watch the Wembley final.

Kevin is "undecided" about whether he will perform at any fan zones in the city of London while he and his sons are there to watch the final.

He admitted to Matthew Raisbeck and John Anderson of BBC Radio Newcastle that his trip to London was "more about the game and experiencing Wembley" and taking his family along for the ride.

On Sunday at 16:30, Newcastle United plays Manchester United.
