    Tinchy stryder (though some of his new stuff is scheiss), jme, wiley, bashy are ok. Grime as a scene is a bit dead atm - no good artists. Garage>Grime even though one came before and virtually morhped into the other. Oh and lethal b was good before too.

    I'm not the typical Tsrian so I might not be the best person to ask . I LOVE GRIME mostly the more old school like Crazy T , JME , Kano , Dizzee and so on but the new artists like Chipmunk and Tinchy Strider are doing their thing also.

    The only thing I don't like about grime is that pretty much anyone from ends can make a track , this brings down the overall standard of talent. Hopefuly when grime blows up commercialy the standard will rise.

    Some grime is managable. When they start rapping about ******** or when Tim Westwood comes on, I'm afraid I morph into a big green monster called the Hulk and start tossing cars everywhere and grabbing helpless dames for my own personal pleasure :huff:

    I think it's already as big as it's ever gonna get, if you can get through 10,000 wannabes from LDN beggin it and MCing on corners, you can find the talent.

    Dizzee used to be sick, then he went away and came back and he's all commercialised and ****. Wtf is 'Bonkers', srsly, he needs to go back to his roots!

    Grime is the best music in the world... and its taking over this year!

    DJ's: Westwood is a better mixer/actual dj, but Logan is the only radio DJ that truly loves grime...

    Crews: The Movement are big theyre only gonna get better now that Mercstons out, Boy Better Know are a bit snakey with each other except Skepta and JME), Marvell crew looked good at the start of the year, the Movement were backing them

    Artists : No one can make grime tracks like wiley (the creator), Tinchy is another one of my favorotes, great to see him in the charts (he is probably already a millionare now),i was never too fussed about Chipmunk but happy to see him doing well.
    Though i personally love their music, i dont belive Ghetts or Skepta are ever truly going to break into the charts properly...
    Devlin is a legend, but he says he wants to stay underground(:eek3: :confused: )

    Did you hear Tinchys song 'Never leave you' was actually about the Grime scene??
    Only realized the other day:eek:

    Whos you favorite artists?

    Maybe but I think there's loads of opportunity for grime to intergrate with the mainstream , if it doesn't work in it's current form then I think it'll naturally evolve into something the general consumer wants or just disapears. Look at Wiley's Rolex or Dizze Rascal's Bonker's , grimes' definetley making a transition into mainstream. It won't be the same old grime we know and love but it'll be grime.

    Edit : Come to think about it I think your overly underestimating grime . IIRC Lethal B sold around 100,000 units of Forward(Pow) and that was in 2003 I think , now we have the likes of Ndubz , Chipmunk & Tinchy Strider regularly reaching 1,000,000 views on youtube . Also IIRC Tinch & NDubz got a No.1 Single recently called "No.1".

    apart from him being very annoying, and chatting more **** then parliament, he is a pretty good dj to see live



    grime is ok, dizzel should go back to grime, seen Wiley live that was funny
