    That video is the weirdest thing. You could base a Cultural Studies career on these two videos (though I guess they'd shoot you if they found out about it).

    Like this weird collision of reality TV and the true crime luridness that you see in gawping out from Take A Break magazine, plus rap's fetishisation of authenticity.

    I've been trying to think of an appropriate metaphor all day but I can't.

    Glad someone else is feeling it. Was wondering if I'd be on my own there. It's fucking mental.

    Not necessarily in musical terms, just in WTFness.

    I quite like it, but it's weird hearing stuff like 'bando' in a Manc accent. The stuff with the mum reminds me of Grime Gran.

    you would never have heard these stories out of people's own mouths before. Not in this country.

    But like Danny said its not really, I love this as music. It's another thing. I don't think it's just rubbernecking either. Although I'm sure lots of people would say it is.

    I find these documents fascinating. As crude and artless as early no limit or something. A culture starting to define itself. Very imatative. Quite sweet even. Not that long ago either. I don't think I'll ever be able to take English rap totally seriously but it's come a long way

    A lot of the resistance to drill is rooted in how terrible this stuff is.

    music that acts as a pre-prepared obituary. the mourning's baked in. the sense of waste. funeral procession music. dressed in black.

    not so pleasant under the circumstances, but "question if gang pull up are you going to back your bredrin?" is iconic.
