    In fact the only mainstream rappers I rate are Giggs and Tinie Tempah
    You like Giggs as a rapper? What do you like about him? He bores me immensely.

    Grime died back in around 06/07. Well to me anyway..
    Either ^ that or this:

    Grime isn't dead as such, it's just evolved, it's no longer just a LDN thing with raves kicking off everywhere, it used to be a scene, now it's more of a genre...

    And yes Mz Bratt is too fit, good call

    Jelluzz a

    D Stubborn

    Lady Leshur

    Then you have the Akala's, Lowkey's and Immortal Techniques who can MURDER Grime if they wanted but choose not to for moral and political reasons.

    I knew ice kid from time ago but he doesn't give a **** about grime cos he owns half of eskibeat, he tried to do a rap tune with some chick (Forgot her name, i think it was Z dot or something) not a while back but his voice isn't set out for anything to do with grime, his bars are good and his flow's decent but yeah .. he can't make any proper hyped up tunes cos of his voice, Talk of the town was decent but that's about it.

    Ghetts is like .. nowhere to be seen.

    Marger's decent, Rival's decent, Trim's decent, Merky ace is decent, Dappy's Tarzan freestyle's actually decent for some reason, P money's decent, Blacks is decent, one person that needs recognition is Jammin .. his flow's sick on a few beats (listen to p money, blacks, jammin, jammer, desperado and jendor's after hours session and you'll see what I mean), Kozzie's decent.

    Few points.

    - Pretty sure Ice Kid didn't own any of Eskibeat, he was signed to it by Wiley
    - It was A.Dot who Ice Kid did a collab with. ZDot is a producer, look him up
    - Dappy isn't grime but his Tarzan Freestyle was good

    Other than that, good post

    - He says in a few freestyles that he doesn't care about music because he owns half of eskibeat.
    - yeh I don't remember names of people
    - I know dappy isn't grime but yeh his freestyle was good.

    But Eskibeat is dead, none of the MCs that were signed to it are relevant anymore.

    Yeah annoying inni

    I don't like talking about grime much on here TBH because most people don't understand it very well.

    People start getting silly and throwing names around like Example etc. Then others just start saying it's not real music and only chavs listen to it.

    But I'm willing to have a sensible discussion.

    OP, P Money isn't the best ATM, I'd say Trim is.
    I understand it fully well and i can vouch for the people who don't understand it that it is such a untalented and stupid genre of music that needs to just die.

    You clearly don't understand it very well.

    Grime is about the beat, you don't have to listen to the vocals







    If you're not into urban music then fair enough, but if you're into DnB and Dubstep etc, then you would understand it's not "untalented music"

    yh i know it is and i like the beats, but the whole genre is still just crap.

    And i have listened to DnB and Dubstep still both are not that good, more talented then Grime though.

    Lowkey: Who said I can't do Grime

    Lowkey has big potential as well. His "main" claim to fame was that Chipmunk Diss but his flow was too sick on that. Apart from P Money, I can't really think of another artist who kick started his career with a diss track. But he CHOOSES not to spit Grime.

    Akala: Shakespere


    It wasn't you but the person who said Chipmunk was never anything special:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDwI7KQAlD8

    That is a TUNE.

    He had MASSIVE potential in Grime. Thats one of the reasons why people are so annoyed at him because he could've taken it to another level.

    Ghetts tried to keep it alive with like Artillery but I don't rate him ever since he tried to call out Lowkey. Plus, he got terrorised by Bashy in LOTM, P Money's Dub killed him and then Top 1 Selected "wasn't aimed at him" but we all know it was and that was just too much.

    Lowkey would be sick on grime

    The way he killed Petrol Bomb, one of my favourite grime vocals ever lol

    Wouldn't say P sending for Ghetts kickstarted his career though, I'd say his dubstep releases kickstarted his career.

    Ok well you're entitled to your opinion I guess

    But by saying you like the beats but not grime is kinda defeating the object.

    From the sounds of it, you just don't like aggressive lyrics and rap in general, not the genre itself.

    I said i like the beats to a point, but the WHOLE genre is still crap i said.
    And i do hate the genre itself, whether you rap about nice things or being a badman init blud, it freaking sucks.

    Was at a rave yesterday, is it me or does the original POW make you just want to go ****ing mental?

    Plus as lyricists, as someone else as said, i rate Akala Lowkey and Immortal Technique way above anything Grime has produced. Saying that i do like JME's lyrics, although most of the time they're about random ****

    Yeah but Akala, Lowkey and Immo couldn't make everybody in the dance go crazy like a lot of other MC's can.
