Don't like Geko, never heard of the two others but Mo West is good.

CC won't blow, voice too squeaky and flow too average.

Mo West has potential, just needs exposure but he'll probably be like Geko (pretty much underground).

This.

Influencing the youth to drop out of school to take part in the 'trap life' as it's seen as 'the only way'.

Young girls feel as if their body's dictate whether they shall find a 'bae' or not due to boys objectifying them.

Teenagers feeling as if they all have to get 'waved', drink alcohol, fxck around, get in trouble with the 'feds' and sell drugs to be accepted within society.

The sad truth.

ehh stop wrecking this thread!!

if you dont like this kinda music move on.... stop talking ****!!

but if im honest your views are very much stereotyped

some rappers make this kinda of music to express there feelings....

not to mention Geko's first rap was about his brother who had passed away!!

he obviously got told he had some talent there which lead him to where he is today....

But that guy isn't big which demonstrates that to be mainstream within the UK hip-hop/grime industry you have to talk about drugs, sex, females, violence and gangs. Although, do not get me wrong that is not always the case with all artists as Ghetts has gone on to talk about political things, for example his song 'Rebel'. I do listen to grime/Uk Hip-Hop but I will refuse to be influenced into all the crap they talk of because I am aware of the meaning of the lyrics.

But you cannot lie and say that a large majority of artists in the UK grime/hip-hop do not merely speak of gangs, drugs and sex, etc which does influence the youth.

But I guess if they're making money of the tracks they produce who cares about what they feed their targeted audience (teenagers).

I can guarantee you most of the rappers are not really about that life, but they know eager youths admire them and see them as inspirational, so they are naive to what they're really saying.

"Ayo my yute you can't eat pum pum and try draw my zoot"

^ That one line from J Hus's freestyle caused major debates between teenagers, and made boys feel victimised for their choice in pleasuring a female. Which is up to them, but because J Hus declared that is disgusting, boys are like "nah that's moist I ain't on that #nowaaay" and try to pick boys out who do and downgrade them.

But anyways, that's life.

Yes Grime is all hype with no substance, but it's entertainment. No-one would be listening to J Hus if all he rapped about was conscious issues, but he knows his demographic is a bunch of immature school kids.

At the end of the day, if acting like a "greazy gang banger" works for him and it pays the bills, then by all means why should he care about some naive youth being influenced by his lyrics, which he doesn't live by himself.

Stormzy is the same, he talks all this crud yet he never lived that life he does it to keep a roof above his head.

back to topic..

Bugzy Malone has been doing good lately, but really if it weren't for chip (who is getting **** load of hate lately, even though I think he's al-right) he wouldn't be nowhere near this famous
