Sour like Lemon & Ps



I've never been big on UK hip Hop but sometimes in the right medium, there is some flow and energy that is too heavy for words. The US style of rapping don't come natural to us and never really has. But since Jamaica brought their ragga influence we got our own ting. Our rap style comes from the pirate radio and rave MCing culture, crowd hypment, which is why for me, it works best in garage, grime and jungle. At 02:25 in this video is what i'm talking about.

Just listen to the flow of Wiley and co. on this 4 x 4 riddim by Slimzee. Holy shit.

And if that hasn't convinced you, Stryders going to show you what I mean even before his voice broke.

And i'm pretty sold on this crazy mix by London's Faggatronix blending garagey beats with grime and crunk vocals to filthy but brilliant effect. For me this is so much more fun than dubstep.
