You need to do your research. There's loads of shit grime about, but every artist I listed is straight hip-hop. It's also refreshing to listen to someone talking about where I live and the things I see - there's only so much I can identify with stories about shootings on projects in NY.
Anyone who says Skinnyman, Task Force, Jehst, Yungun and Foreign Beggars are shit clearly hasn't heard their albums.
Stop watching Channel U and go to Kung-Fu @ Underworld in Camden Town on the third Tuesday of every month. There you'll learn that there's MCs getting up at the open mic who could rip most of the US sell out chart rappers to shreds.
I seen the Lowkey & Yungun track Politics Pt.2 gettin mad props from the US on the Hip-Hop Game site.
