It'll be interesting to see what happens with drill this year, there's plenty of talented MCs and producers in the scene, I'm hoping they can take it up a level

did anybody read this, and if so, was it good?

Yeah, and it was. I can also recommend This Is Grime by Hattie Collins and Olivia Rose, Eskiboy by Wiley and Grime Kids by Target

Thanks for the new thread! Has there been any good roundups of the 2018 uk rap/swing/grime scene(s) yet? I enjoyed quite a few of them this year but I have no idea which songs were actually the most popular.

Fact did one but not sure if there's any others

paolo, Friday, 4 January 2019 14:51 (eleven months ago) link

Hmmm, that list's a bit too hard for my tastes. Surely someone somewhere must have rated the more afro-dancehall adjacent rap stuff at some point?

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Friday, 4 January 2019 15:43 (eleven months ago) link

Why did no one mention there was a rap music comedy game show? Made by ITV?! I'm still not sure if I can believe it

sbahnhof, Saturday, 5 January 2019 06:15 (eleven months ago) link

Longneck - I'm not sure there's any kind of critical focus around that stuff even now. Non-grime UK rap still isn't really written about enough (except in a tabloidy drill panic way) and the afropop stuff barely at all despite being legit chart music now.

Is there a drill or afroswing track that enough of us can rally around to get it into the ILX poll? I'm guessing Homerton B/Vroom/I See You Shining?

Matt DC, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 08:05 (eleven months ago) link

Stylo G - Touchdown is a fave. I also like J Hus - Dark Vader and Yxng Bane & Maleek Berry’s Corner, plus Afro B’s Drogba. And EO’’s German. Not sure if I or anybody else actually rememebered to nom them though, lol.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 10:06 (eleven months ago) link

* remembered

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 10:06 (eleven months ago) link

German and Dark Vader were definitely nominated, I remember checking as I would have nominated them otherwise.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 10:10 (eleven months ago) link

Good. I also like the ones you mentioned and am ready to vote for at least one of them.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 10:15 (eleven months ago) link

Vroom will def get a vote, and I can probably be persuaded to vote for Homerton B too.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Tuesday, 8 January 2019 10:28 (eleven months ago) link

Those were the two I was thinking of as well (although I'll probably vote for two or three others at least).

I'm surprised there isn't more coverage of UK rap, everyone in the media was banging on about grime a couple of years ago (and with good reason). Maybe a lot of journalists just find it too poppy to take seriously. This article/interview was pretty decent. Who know that Mabel was Neneh Cherry's daughter?

Not much new drill to share with you I'm afraid but this one's good, beat's a bit different from your average drill track, reminds me of sinogrime tunes from back in the day

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/jan/31/skengdo-and-am-the-drill-rappers-sentenced-for-playing-their-song

Dan Hancox writes about drill and violence in an interview with Skengdo and AM. I've noticed there's a lot more self-censorship in drill tracks over the next six months or so

paolo, Sunday, 3 February 2019 11:48 (ten months ago) link

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7ujy8qV7Uw

This is the track that got them in trouble, best thing they've done recently. Skengdo and AM are two of the biggest names in drill but weren't great last year (especially Skengdo)

Feeling that Dave track and Black has grown on me as well. I heard there was some controversy about it being played on Radio 1 which is rather depressing but not entirely surprising. Only listened to his album once but it's really good, lyrically he's probably the best MC in the UK

paolo, Friday, 8 March 2019 13:02 (nine months ago) link

I was all ready to give the Dave album a miss but I'm listening now and it's really fucking good (if incredibly emo).

Matt DC, Friday, 8 March 2019 13:07 (nine months ago) link

yeah - I gave it a listen this morning. feeling it too tbh

love the burna track

PaulDananVEVO (||||||||), Friday, 8 March 2019 13:10 (nine months ago) link

This and the Little Simz album in as many week suggests a general levelling up in the way MCs are approaching the album format.

Matt DC, Friday, 8 March 2019 13:14 (nine months ago) link

The Little Simz loses a bit of steam at the end for me, but the first half absolutely bangs. Get her and Koffee on a track together asap

This one sounds like it's got a bit of a dancehall influence. I think it's good that Unknown T's been trying to do things differently since Homerton B but at the same time it'd be nice to hear more bangers like that.

Ramz with a conscious track about mental health. He had some serious issues earlier this year but I think he's OK now. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the UK drill lads have serious mental health issues from being around violence from a young age and always having to be on the lookout for opps. I work in mental health and I've seen quite a few guys who have had issues with anxiety and PTSD as adults as a result of growing up in that kind of environment and not being able to show any kind of vulnerability. It's sad to see.

paolo, Saturday, 16 November 2019 11:39 (one month ago) link

That Riko and Wiley Words thing is bonkers and not a great look for Wiley in particular.

There's a new Yizzy & Dizzee song out there that's a kind of brostep/grindie mashup apparently designed entirely for snowboarding festivals and it would be absolutely terrible if it wasn't for the fact that both MCs are absolutely nailing it.

You will no doubt be overjoyed to find out there's an entire track in which he extrapolates upon the themes inherent in the old line "I had to have bare meetings with pricks". Complete with a fake ecclesiastical choir of JMEs singing "so many pricks" over a sombre organ sound.

Bad day for drill yesterday. SJ from OFB got life for murder and LD and ASAP from 67 got four years each for drugs. What a waste.

Dot Rotten's back and he gives Jay 1 what for with this one. Didn't get paid for a beat apparently. It's a shame Dot isn't bigger than he is, he's always been one of the best MCs/producers.

Aitch is a good rapper but there's something about him that gets on my nerves. He just seems like a wee dick.

The flow on that Dot Rotten Original Real Talk is gripping. I like the production better on Land of the Brave but I'd like to hear him riding some truly strong grime.

It sure does! Grime's not dead! And he's gone top 40 with a physical only release >>>>
