    I really don't understand why so many UK teens are following this grime culture. The music is genuinely unpleasant to listen to and it promotes really chavy behaviour like taking drugs wearing a tracksuit... Anyone else think the same?
    Yeah completely agree with you. It some ways it does. However I and other people listen to it for the flow and just the way in which they can present story's that seem relatable despite the fact that i've never been in that situation. Despite this I agree recently a lot of grime artists are focussing on the area that you've presented.

    Same.

    The beats are good as is the flow. Not sure how people are saying it encourages anti-social behaviour... Probably the same kind of people who think GTA breeds murderers.

    Exactly. I just enjoy it cos it's good music. People who link it to anti-social behaviour obviously assume we can't think for ourselves to exercise some restraint in our own lives. What do they know?

    Also GTA FTW.

    It's not very good. Most of it is poorly produced. The content is mostly the same. The releases are very unreliable.

    Good Grime is very difficult to find.

    Listen to BIDC and call it a day. It pretty much starts and ends with that album, individual tracks aside.

    Yeah, I kinda feel the same way as well. I much prefer rock music as it is more meaningful and authentic. The guitar solos pretty much pack the punch for rock music and that's why I love that genre of music. Some of my favourite bands are Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Paramore, All American Rejects and Imagine Dragons.

    Grime is shite but it's better than half the shite you just named.

    It's not really relevant though is it? Besides each person has their own opinion if Wilfred doesn't like my taste of my music then fair enough.

    That's fair enough bro. I agree that there isn't as much quality Grime music out there as much as other genres I love. But that's probably cos I haven't found it - I don't know a lot about the genre as a whole. I started getting into it just by following some of the figureheads of Grime like JME, 67, Bugzy Malone and Big Narstie. Always been a fan of Dizzee Rascal too so I've heard the BIDC album already.

    I do think the Pure Grime compilation albums have got some decent tracks on them.

    If you're really new to the genre I recommend the following:

    Sets:

    F Radio 3
    F Radio 5
    P Money's Valentine's Day Massacre set
    P Money's Money Over Everyone set

    Instrumental CDs:

    Maniac - New Age Grime
    Rude Kid - Are You Ready
    Nocturnal - Nocstrumentals
    Ruff Sqwad - White Label Classics
    + a lot of Preditah's stuff

    CDs:

    JME - History
    Ruff Sqwad - Guns & Roses 1 & 2
    Wiley - Race Against Time
    Neckle Camp - Straight Necklin'
    Maxsta - The Maxtape

    This is obvious, entry level, well known stuff but it's a good place to start. The compilation CDs are OK as an introduction but the track selections tend to be a bit dodgy.

    Quote me if you want individual tracks.
