After 12 hours of gangsta rap I could have knifed someone



After Gordon Smart's calamitous attempt to 'unmask' someone whose name could be found on their Wikipedia page (even after Burial posted his true identity on his MySpace page, Smart was still pointing the finger elsewhere), the Sun continues to astound and entertain.

They've enlisted a 40-year-old radio presenter to give an account of how 12 hours straight of listening to grime affected him.

There are some pretty tasty quotes in there, such as:

After Bob Marley died in 1981, black music started becoming aggressive.

And ...

On Sunday I overdosed on violent lyrics in black music. The state I was in, I was a menace to society.

Here's my favourite bit:

After listening to this hybrid of hip-hop and garage music, I wanted to kill someone.

I wouldn’t, of course, because I don’t have a violent nature.

Phew! You had me going there ...

Next week: Lorraine Kelly gives a vivid account of how listening to bassline caused a cluster of her haemorrhoids to explode.

hahahaha massive massive lols at the lorraine kelly line.


love how he managed to slip a crazy titch reference in there too. watching a few grime dvds a few weeks back from 2004 i remembered that wow titch was just a little shit wasn't he?

but yeah fuck the hardcore continuum this guys account of the history of grime is astounding.

WHY is there a dizzee rascal picture and a reference to dance wiv me when it's one of his worst / unviolent songs ever? dizzee could actually benefit from some 'violent' lyrics right about now

Yeah listenin to Elton John for 12 hours straight would make you want to go and bum someone senseless aswell, but they're not trying to ban that. Where's the balance we ask ourselves?
