Ps coming in from left, right and centre / I've got bookings from now 'til next winter
I just came across this clip on my hard drive of Scorcher showering (honestly, no pun intended). He needs to vocal Low Deep's 'Jedi' with those same bars and that's a hit right there (maybe). I see his 'chance us' track has been signed to Logan's label.
The beat on JME'S 'Don't Chat To Me' track is amazing. I remember when I first heard it on some random Roll Deep set recording and had to rewind it about 7 times on Windows Media Player. You can hear the full vocal on the new Logan show.
My favourite bit of Logan's show this week is when Logan randomly cuts the music about 45 minutes in and says "Stop typing whilst I'm talking Christopher". Random.
There are a lot of 'special' people out there and it's always quite touching when one reaches out and tries to speak to you. Check out some bars for me in my comments box:
"An internet gangsta, somethin we all wana be,
Already lookin shook, my mouth against the M-I-C.
You find it hard to articulate, until you dun ejaculate,
Screamin Hattie's name, it seems alone you play this game.
I admit that I'm new to MC banter,
A cunt, like a hunter, I'm lookin for the fronta,
Seems before I let you have it, you dun run for cover,
Moving to the next best thing, the child bearer, your mother.
Your hand that rocks the cradle,
looks dumfounded, unsteady, uncapable,
your girl 3 years, a fable,
a story you tell your stable.
So Mr. Prancehall, guild to the pricks/(slash)those that like dancehall, a combination inherently linked to low IQ,
your basic lyrical ability is tasteless, n like your face, shrouded be ugliness.
Your basis for taste is embarressing, your words, your rhymes, harrassing,
slewin those at RWD mag, I'd like to see what other genius you can pull out of your goodie bag.
Opinions, reviews, pretense is immense,
If I were to try a rhyme like yours, it wouldn't hold suspense. That's where I'll it for now, until the next time, big tings be gwan, until the next rhyme".
I have to say this is one of the funiest, most amazing things I have every read. I just love the awkward grammar - it's as if this guy was writing the bars in Middle English or something. If grime existed 700 years ago, this is what the bars would've been like. I'm telling you, this guy is the next Shakespeare. More bars please!
If the above wasn't enough excitement for one week, I also got another great comment the other day:
"Say da name Prancehall to any Taliban supporting 11 ta 56 yr from da bangladeshi community (eh don't fuck wid da Shadwell massive)in Tower hamlets an they'll show you where prancer lives, get mi, no longo tingo...
i met him twice at One man Standing (he woz doing a set wid Mac 10) an den at Sugar n Spice in Hackney. I shared my calaloo an ockra wid him in exchange for an old bounty killah track an a dusty copy of Vice.
Prancer kinda looks like a squashed, albino Shabba Ranx or Godsgift wid flu.. get mi.. propa like innocent, an cute as a button.
I swear on my stepmums life i'm not making dis up. May God strike her dead if i'm lying!"
I thought I'd been keeping myself on the DL but obviously some people have been watching face cos that description is me down to a T. If I had a pound for every time someone said I looked like an Albino Shabba Ranks, I'd be a very rich guy by now.
One final thing:
When I joked a little while back about Skepta not putting me in his Top 8 on myspace, little did I know that he was out there taking note. Now I'm not saying we're best friends or anything, I'm just saying...
