cant really compare guys like jehst to grime peeps that were putting music out at the same time... like comparing kendrick to chief keef

both got their own pros but coming from completely different worlds so comparisons are pretty much pointless

What you talking about, he raps in a British accent, you can easily tell he is British.

i'm not comparing

 

i'm merely pointing out how desperate their work was

 

scratching around trying to find a 'uk sound' that worked when it was happening organically elsewhere

 

rap is street music and these guys never had the streets

 

some uni music lol

 

 

my first point still stands

Rap hasn't been street music for a long time, whether he had support in the 'streets' or not is irrelevant, the guy is a good rapper better than the majority of the rappers in the UK or anywhere.

 

The whole idea of UK rap being 'organic' is a silly one also, rappers of his ilk try to recreate the new york golden era sound because that was the greatest era of rap, rather that than the hundreds of rappers we have now who try to recreate the trap sound.

 

How organic can something be when you didn't create it, Grime is the only form of music that can be organic, and even that had huge influence from the states, because they created the genre.

so Chiraq for instance, the only regional scene in america producing a wealth of new localised rappers right now is not street music?  regardless, in 2001 when Jehst was popping, rap was most definitely still percieved as street music in the public eye

 

there was never a 'whole idea of uk rap being organic' from me that was my exact point.  when them guys were trying to 'recreate a golden era' that era and sound was as dead as disco mate.  plus trap didnt even exist then so i dont know why you're dropping that in there.  

 

nowadays Joey Badass and them can pop because we havent had that sound for 20 plus years.  we've been through the busta ryhmes, timbaland and neptunes mtv era, new york mixtape era, rise of the south, the rnbification of rap, the globalisation of 'trap' as a sound, the turn up era, the internet in general

 

 

back to my original point - i'm not saying "well grime was happening at that time so llow them guys" cos that would be like saying "i don't like apples BECAUSE i like oranges" when they're two completely different fruits

 

but i will say this - for the longest time this music we refer to as underground was all about being fresh and cutting edge and not just running old themes into the ground and that's where i dropped these guys out

 

if you wanna listen to some kid from sussex rap about how much weed he smokes, the sun moon and stars and how the world is a terrible place while picking up his student loan from UCL then cool but not for me, thanks
