The top 20 chart-selling DVD series, Lord of the Mics, returns for its 5th series on 16 December this year. Having launched in 2001 by cemented grime producer/artist Jammer, the series caused a shockwave of excitement throughout the UK's urban underground by showcasing the battling talents of the, then unknown, artists such as; Wiley, Skepta, Kano and Tinchy Stryder.
University is great if you're passionate about what you are studying, your degree is a doorway to next steps in your career. If you want to start a business but are unsure and feel University can help get you to the place where you feel more confident, then take some time out to consider your options before you start studying. Travelling worked for me.
For those who know Wiley, he is notoriously 'generous' with his music and has been known to release not one or two tracks but a whole albums-worth of his own work to his supporters via zip file links on Twitter for free! My sources, however, can confirm that this BOT remix has definitely not been heard outside of his camp.
As grime music was slowly diluted in a bid to make it acceptable for the mainstream, the artists who once pioneered this gritty genre turned to electro beats and vacuous female backing singers to sell their records. Grime became confused. The usual jaw rattling bass, rapid snares and angry lyrics had now been replaced with soft synths, pop melodies and soppy lyrical content that made Mills and Boon look savage.
