    1. What were the tracks? 2. 'Tonight'?



    'I'm the high roller, bi-polar in the fly motor' is so British, the bathetic slump from 'fly' to 'motor'

    Also it's quite catchy

    Nines has nigh-on zero charisma as far as I can tell but he does have some memorable bars.

    'Me and the gang coming like some Arabs / spending all this crack money up in Harrods'.

    Nines album is out:



    My remarks re: Nines above still apply.

    It's weird this sort of anti-charisma thing these UK rappers have got going now. That delivery like they don't really care. Maybe it plays into the 'I'm not a rapper I'm a trapper' thing.

    'Trapper of the Year' is a banger though.

    Nah, they just don't sound like Grime which is a lot of effort. The greatest Giggs quote of all time was that one interview where he described Grime as "A lot of guys doing a lot but not saying much, not REALLY". It works best when you imagine it in his voice.

    Of course now my man's career exists to be subsidized by grime festival bookings so...

    Nines sounds like he's talking rather than rapping.

    Admittedly this is better than that Jehst/Chester P thing of emoting as if you're about to cry.

    Also to be fair, have you heard a Rakim song of late? The delivery's there but 'effort' is not always something you can describe Rakim as performing.

    I like this, refreshing to hear British rappers yelling a bit like in the grime days.

In a balaclava.

    The Yanks got introduced to road rap en masse last night through Giggs features on "More Life". Unsurprisingly, they think he's shit.

    TBH although I do like Giggs, I do still think of him as a bit of a novelty rapper. So to an American he presumably sounds ridiculous. But then, not so long ago rap from outside New York was basically considered less credible and even a joke, wasn't it?

    Why do you think that? He's pretty much killed everything he's been on for the past couple of years.
