    They are like Magpies, they spend all their money on 'bling'. I don't think they'll make as much as you think.

    Edit: I'm not saying Magpies have money, I'm suggesting they are attracted to shiny things.

    thats your opinion, but its alot deeper than american rap such as lil wayne rollin on 20's and smakin his *****es up.
    whereas devlin/sway/kano talk about home life and the streets also about the government now, especially now they are known

    uk is more of a dance/pop kind of culture.. wheras america is a hip-pop/soul kind

    which is why artists like cascada is so big in the UK but the likes of Estelle found it too hard to break through. As soon as she crossed over to amercia - she blew up!

    simillar to what is happening taio cruz now


    edit: i just realised this has no relevance to your question lol..

    thats a perfect example - compare shes like a star and take me back.
    shes like a star had a more `slow jam` back drop to it but take me back has kept the same grime lyrics but is placed on to a dance beat so appeals to uk audience more..

    Both, I guess. Although the Americans seem to be into their bling moreso than the British.

    to be fair Take Me Back is much more Tynchy Stryder's song than Taio Cruz's.

    Grime's one of the only genres i'd consider decent in this field.

    Answer to OP's question: Too many retards buy their music.
