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.
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 ...
