more power to him tbh, he has paid his dues and some. plus he's one of a select few that didn't have to sell his soul in order to be a successful grime artist.

p.s. i've got loads of jackets from supreme as it is, but i really want these Sad

Erm, do you follow grime? Let's act like "Cross my Heart", "Bad Boy " "Amnesia", "rescue me" and that song with N-Dubz didn't happen. I like Skepta but the way he started wearing American streetwear like 2 years ago and has phases of switching up his whole image is just funny to me. That being said, apart from trying to hard with Supreme lately ( he's 32 Ffs), I fully rate his musical direction.

i used to follow grime, not as much now.

agree about those songs but overall Skepta didn't go 'up river' and totally sell himself out compared to people like Lethal B and to a greater extent Wretch 32

plus i dont begrudge Skepta for making the odd candy pop hit here and there for a cheque. It's not as if he was ever gonna have a solid career on grime alone. Its a bit of a boring argument but UK wise we dont have the infrastructure to support Grime artist 100% hence them being forced to make shitty pop songs to make ends meat.

Dizzee was probs the last one to make it on Grime alone and look what he's become now….

Wretch and Tinie Tempah are embarrassing - Love the way Tinie goes on as if he is some fashion overlord going to all different fashion shows and red carpet do's - Trying so hard to be a UK Yeezy imo

I dont get the impression that Tinie thinks he's Mr. Menswear, he's just making the most of the opportunities presented.

He's in no way shape or form trying to pass himself off as the UK Yeezy. Whether or not the brands themselves see him as that is another thing

My list is three times longer than the last two years (4 collections)

Still managing to fuck up great opportunitys with lazy details (Arabic Fur Trimmed parka should had no Arabic Logo or Fur trim and it woulda been nice) but overall Not mad at it, some great bits (Ripstop BDU Shirt, Zip Cardigan, Coveralls +++)

Collaborations are lookin alright too Undercover, StoneIsland, D.Johnston, Thrasher, Clarks Walabees (hopefully), plus seasonal Nike/TNF/Vans

Playboy Jewellery is shocking glad I grabbed their original Ring

Thing is about Tinie is he was never really grime anyway, was always an outside cat who was looking to make tunes for the femmes and climb his way into the mainstream ASAP. Got a few radio rips and freestyles of him over stuff like Ghetto Coyote but he wasn't around long enough to warrant any criticism at all. Just doing his thing.

Skepta doesn't deserve too much criticism either, the good thing about Skepta is he's always still turned up to raves and put out proper grime bits along with his wispy mainstream shit. Wiley was similar. In the scene and industry, people were/are still looking to the Dizzee legacy whereby getting signed by a major is the way to go. People forget it's still such a relatively new genre and movement of music. It's a process.

Quite a lot of heads been aware from day though, Butterz, Newham Gens, P money, Narstie etc. It's only now that it seems to have fully got through to the scene explicitly that it can work without selling out or watering down. Seems Skepta is aware now and knows he's in a position where he needs to school the younger generation like Novelist etc that they can flourish underground. He's doing good, definitely making the right moves now.

Skepta in Supreme makes sense to me…

Quite a few pieces I like this season, there always is. Usually stick with plain shit all year round but recently I've been drawn to lairy stuff, especially for when the sun's out. Really want the Heels Shirt, love it. Reminds me of dramatised Italian-Americans, Bada Bing and Vice City.

He doesn't seem to fit with a anything to do with Supreme. Vintage hip-hop, hardcore punk, Miles Davis all makes sense with the concept of supreme (I stress I'm no sup fanboy). To have a poor grime artist who jumped on about the same time that Joey Essex did and 'chucked all his LV in the bin' is pure lol

Is he collaborating with Supreme? No, so just shut up, he's a friend of the store (who have Grime connections), hangs out there and gets free gear for simply being friends with workers. The fact that he's in the public eye is coincidence, this isn't marketing/planned, it's simply he gets to go in and get shit regularly for free! There's plenty of these types in the New York store but none are "famous", it goes with nearly all skate stores that people get flowed gear. . .
