Plus he hangs out with piff gang these days

have you listened to konnichiwa? its fucking good and he produced most of the tracks himself. hes relevant because he makes good grime music

The album is decent. The best tracks are the ones that have been around a while, though Man and a couple of the other new ones have grown on me a lot. Regardless, I don't get why people have to been negative about it. At least a quarter of the tracks on it are legitimate classics.

The Pharrell track is horrible and out of place though, I still don't get why people revere that guy so much. And I found the Chip phone call is a bit embarrassing.

Used to be really into grime in 2002-2005 as a teenager, got shit loads of dubplates in the loft I picked up from shops like Big Apple, Rhythm Division, Blackmarket Records,ect. Loved all the pirate radio stuff around that time, Deja vu, Rinse FM, etc. Used to spend all my money on records and sneaking into raves underage. Lost its way for me after around 2005 and I stopped DJing and paying much attention to the scene, too many crews emerged and the scene got stale, and production of tracks never seemed to replicate or progress from this era. Many of the break-out stars tried to replicate Dizzy Rascal's commercial success, with very mixed results. Have to say I'm quite surprised to see the scene having a bit a renaissance, seems to have a good crop of talent around now though, with a few familiar faces. Not really feeling the Skepta album, couple of good tracks though.

Still occasionally listen to some of the classic pirate radio sets from NASTY and Roll Deep, etc. Makes me feel quite old to think this was before the internet was widely used, relying on recommendations from record shops, missed calls on pirate radio for a reload, etc Oops
Cool

same thing was said when Road Rap was the ting. Tbf it was worse then cah only Birmingham man were consistently making grime. We got Aj Tracey, Jammz, Nov, YGG, Cadell bare new producers, whole boxed ting, stormzy Ffs. It will be survive but won't be as popular as UK drill is now with the "urban" crowd again.

How to make UK drill.

1) Say "bando" and least 3 times
2) Mimic the sound of a phone ringing
3) Wear a bally
