Everyone's on it.

It's not even as good as it was a few years ago (when it was still shit, but a lot better than now)

In work so not in the position to post older grime, but will when I get home.

Yeh, Roll Deep were decent at one point.

Wiley, some Kano, even Scepta had a couple of decent tunes.

Dot Rotten was sick back in the day. Ghetto was decent too.

Yeh Boy In Da Corner was a raw album.

Compare that to "grime" now days.

Even old school Tinnie Tempah was pretty good. Wifey was a huge tune.

Shame he raps slower and withn a different voice so everyone would buy his tunes.

Re: Why does everyone love Grime these days?

i think its because dubstep has become more acceptable across the public. People always prefer vocal tunes...and theres always been a bit of an iffy line between some dubstep and grime tunes.....so i guess its a natural path to take for those seeking UK basey tracks with vocals.

Repeating the same line over and over for 3 minutes really fucking annoys me.

I'd rather listen to MC Hotwheels.

JME is terrible.

There is no need to say serious that many times.

In one tune, I he says it about 50 times.

He's worse than Busta Rhymes and the n-bomb

I downloaded a 2003 Roll Deep set the other day with Wiley, dizzee, tinchy strider (!) and tons of others last week. Twas much better than the stuff you hear now.
