    If you watch the interview there is a lot of chat about being their first with dark tunes before grime or eski.

    I mean, they are clearly condemned to being the runners up but I still think it's an interesting bit of the history.

    There is an amusing bit in the interview where he talks about taking a box of "Hoe's Don't Mean Shit To Me" twelves into a record shop and finding an unimpressed woman behind the counter.

    two options there

    1. distinguish between 'hoes' and 'respectable women'
    2. say 'Actually, a hoe is an ancient and versatile agricultural and horticultural hand tool used to shape soil, remove weeds, clear soil, and harvest root crops.'

    The interviewer eventually went for option 1 - "Hoes and Queens". Which is still a misogynist trope of course.

    Watched this thing years back where it was Hyper b2b on mic with Jon E Cash. Diabolical disparity in enjoyment.
