The level of MCing in grime right now is just as good as it's ever been (even though Raskit isn't really grime)

mixed feelings on this. dizzee sounds incredible. technically hes fantastic. nothing to argue with there. but these beats arent... boring, but theyre not exactly teeming with personality. theres nothing wrong with them per se, but they sound 3rd rate. theres also something weirdly cocooned about the album. its more like roots manuva, individual british rap from a one off maverick, than anything remotely connected to road rap/grime. like it exists purely in relation to dizzee, than anything outside of him. i guess thats not a bad thing, its expected really after this long, but it makes the album sound ultimately inconsequential, for all its technical excellence. i dont wanna be one of these 'why isnt he making grime anymore?' people but i do find it dissapointing that he is STILL trying to discard that part of his history/music.

You were locked in a room and beaten half to death for fucking with your DJs 14 year old sister. They made Tinchy watch he was crying. https://t.co/37WuelAINF— Dizzee Rascal (@DizzeeRascal) October 1, 2017
