Original is best


Yea so I like Grime now. One of the premier grime artists out now is Dave and his huge single “Wanna Know”. The song was released five months ago and gained enough buzz in England to warrant a remix from the top dog Drake himself. Although the remix is cool its a net-wide consensus that the original is better. European artists have an appreciation for complexity in their lyrics and melodies that is crazy. It might drive a few listeners off but “Wanna Know” is a smooth introduction to genre for newcomers. Watch the video below.

Grime on the rise


Skepta is one of the first artists from London to make waves in America since Dizzee Rascal and the beginnings of grime. The art form has evolved to a much more listenable state as the influence of American rap has touched and influenced many London MC’s as. His debut album Konichiwa didn’t make the commercial impact many expected but the music was and is still definitely there.Watch the video for Skepta’s nocturnal banger “No Security” below.
