Check out this amazing new track from Lady Sovereign's Album:
MP3: Lady Sovereign - Witness (Jammer Remix)
I love the way she so perfectly emulates Jamaican patois on this track. On "Random" she sounds like a tongue-less shetland pony speaking in a cod-Jamaican accent, while being strangled by her fetish-loving owner. Here, she sounds so real, you'd think she was actually black.
Also, check out this new David Banner joint in collaboration with gyal of the moment, M.I.A:
MP3: David Banner feat. M.I.A. - My Hometown
If, like me, you've been baffled by the hype concerning M.I.A., but have reserved judgement 'cos she's an immigrant and Thom Yorke likes immigrants, then wait until you here this! It's actually really good. You don't even need to pretend you like this one for a change.
While we're on the subject of grime, let's get even grime-ier with this grimey beast of a track from The Streets' new promo.
MP3: The Streets - Skeng
On this track, Mike Skinner "sings" about his struggle growing up on the mean streets of Barnsley. With lyrical content as real as this, it's unsuprising why journalists are calling Mike Skinner the new MC Neutrino.
