Why do you think that? He's pretty much killed everything he's been on for the past couple of years.
I dunno, he just sounds a bit comical. He's deliberately comical, with the line about Batman on KMT and so on. I think his sense of humour is quite British, quite deadpan and tongue-in-cheek, and bound to go over peoples heads (especially Americans). Like that line about 'looking all christmas, looking all turkey' It's almost like he SOUNDS shitter than he is. Like, I loved 'Talking The Hardest' but even that had those lines like 'coming up through the dirt like a parsnip' which are poised somewhere between genius and embarrassing.
Crowley will probably correct me here but I think he's like a British Cam'ron in some respects.
Anyway, not trying to hate on him, he's obviously one of the kings of UK rap and gave birth to many imitators.
RE: Harlem Spartans - Am I right in thinking they're ALL in prison now? Read that on another forum.
Someone might have already posted this. Anyway. I'm still feeling like some of these rappers are below par, but I'm definitely getting more of a feel for the UK stuff lately. The flows are definitely not US derived and some of the voices are very distinctive too.
the trial sounds like a shitshow - prosecution referring to a social media post c biz supposedly made about getting revenge. i vaguely remember the post being a screenshot or something that ppl were saying was fake at the time.
c biz clearly not about to let anything go with bars about church road and nines' brother

on a more positive tip this doc is really impressive and focused mostly on ldn rap rather than the grime hype. wide variety of ppl in there, not just wheeling out skepta/stormzy for some surface questions like you'd have on a branded content type thing. this nathan dude went hard
