    I like grime and im not stupid, yet... haha

    JME, Skepta, Kano etc
    Skepta and Kano these days aren't grime, sorry

    JME is grime but is a poor example



    Most of them lyrics are probably too clever for most chavs TBH

    While I'm not especially well-versed in ghetto lore, Kano's early material surely transcends the genre:

    No not really, nor do they claim to be...

    Just saying, alot of artists are actually very smart

    Devlin a more mainstream artist is actually a very clever man

    It does tend to attract idiots to be honest. At least with a lot of other music, they singers can usually speak formal English, can't say the same about most Grime artists.

    Then there's the factor of what it promotes. Usually guns, knifes, violence and sleeping with women. Not exactly great messages.

    It's quite a narrow genre, with a lot of hype, shouting and anger.

    Lol what. Also..grime was decent when I was 14. Im 18 now, it all seems very 'pop' like. If it went back to Roll Deep (pre-Big Money Sound, so like Shake a Leg), Wiley (pre- Wearing my Rolex), Ghetts (the first album only) and pretty much everyone pre-2008. Oh and JME, serious. That was the golden age.

    I had my dubstep phase after Grime but then everyone started listening to it suddenly a million and one DJ's popped out of the woodwork so I'm back on to American Hip Hop. Give me Cypress Hill or Immortal Technique anyday over 'UK hip-hop' or actually, any UK music.
    Grime is not hiphop! I respect the good grime artists (I believe every genre has good and bad music) but the majority of it is absoloute *******s and Icant stand when people say its UK Hiphop. I would say that you need to broaden your horizons mate, there is loads of UK rappers who pay homage to both old skool US hiphop. Check out Rhyme Asylum, theyve collaborated with alot of US rappers. On the whole, I completely agree with your first paragraph.

    I have never met anyone who is not a chav with no brains that listens to grime.

    You quoted a post from 6 years ago...

    On the note of the actual topic... Assuming we'll get anywhere with it being so old, though I think the thread should stick around a bit, I mean, grime is much bigger now than it was back then, attitudes may have changed...

    If you ask me, grime doesn't make you stupid, but rather grime attracts people who generally come off as stupid (mostly chavs).
