British Grime Music

A few weeks back I was playing PGR 4 on my Xbox 360 and this song came on while I was racing and it caught my ear. I wrecked 2 times trying to find that song again. It turned out to be “blah blah” by Lady Sovereign. Once I had that bit of info I started up my Zune Marketplace and started to download the album. I then started doing some research to find more of this hypnotic music.

I hadn’t been this taken in by a specifc genre since I got in Drum and Bass.

After several hours of reading about Grime I found some great stuff. To name a few…

  • Dizzee Rascal
  • M.I.A.
  • Kano
  • Mr. Slash
  • Roll Deep
  • Tinchy Stryder

Those just a few that I found.

It’s great. It’s rap, but not American rap. No 50 Cent or Nelly bullshit. I don’t feel like I should sag my pants low and turn my hat to the side. I don’t feel guilty listening to it because I’m not black.

Short post I know, but I figued it was worth a post since it has consumed so many hours of my ears time.
