The Escapist is a big track. Hate his flow more time than not.

I like him, he's a f*ck*ng legend.He isnt a Birmingham fan btw, well, not a proper one any way.He started 'supporting' them just before he got signed as part of his gimmick - true story.

thought Original Pirate Material (the tune) was absolute trash when it came out, garage was still alive then and that werent itllowed him bar Let's Push Thing Forward - tunethen i heard that "i'm gary an i'm an alcoholic" tune and rated him differentlyA Grand Don't Come For Free is one of the greatest concept albums i've ever heard. classicthen i saw him live wen his third album dropped which i didnt likehis band were a bit sh*t and didnt recreate his tunes very well at all, Mike was on some pink blazer ting bout 3 years after Vice City dropped and all his tunes decided to use that same weepy chord structure that made his music more introspective, and crapstill got love for the guy, undeniable talent on a next levelONE OF THE ONLY GUYS TO EVER SHOW GRIME LOVE, AND DO IT PROPERLY!!!
