    nah I like Grimes, but US rap in general is in a real good place right now.

    I love Del, too. Catch a Bad One is one my of favorites. He's Ice Cube's cousin (most of his fans already know this).

    I lost about 10,000 songs of rare/older shit when my laptop got burgled awhile back. Slowly reupping so I appreciate all the name drops.

    UK rap has always been great, some of my favorites ever are British (Jehst, Task Force, Klashnekoff, Lowkey, Kyza, Usmaan, YunGun, wordsmith blah blah) but I never really got into grime.
    I have 5 suitcases of rap CDs and vinyl sitting in my basement that I need to deal with. Every time my parents come and visit from Australia they bring a suitcase over. I have no idea what's even there but there are some rarities.
    Diniro, I like your Wu coffee table.

    I saw a preview on SF talking about UK rap and came to post that last video

    Instead I'll post this one



    Some of her bars are too generic/cliche/try hard but in general some real gems in her stuff


    I been listening to a lot of Asian rap. Keith Ape and Kohh. I also really like this dude named Black Nut. Some really clever puns even though his whole projected image is brokeass pervert beta male

    I saw Hieroglyphics with Del and Casual in Milwaukee about a million years ago (maybe 1999?)...still one of my favorite shows I've been to.

    "93 to Infinity" and "I Wish My Brother George Was Here" are still so great. Oh, and Casual's "Fear Itself". Wow.

    Man, I love Grime but also tend to think it's pretty terrible/underdeveloped at the same time. Most artists' rhyme schemes tend to be too straightforward, and the content really generic. Still a lot of fun though.

    No Big KRIT love here? Definitely agree with people talking about rap being great today. There's a lot happening on different levels of complexity.

    And if you tell me you've never enjoyed Drake...you just take life too seriously -- it's too short to always be cerebral, austere, frowning, cheekbones sucked in, wearing your turtleneck underneath your Margiela suit

    You guys just need to listen to The Bug, preferably with Flowdan MCing. His live shows are incredible.

    It's a bit odd UK grime is so big again and it peaked in Denmark ~4 years ago. Would've thought it was the reverse.

    Edit: or possibly they were just slow getting on the first UK grime wave

    US is pretty slow on that stuff.

    Hell, most people who say they love dubstep don't know what the original sound is.

    I need a link

    Also really appreciating the knowledge being spread. Learned about so many good artists in the past two days. Such a good community here

    Grime is bigger now than it was 4 years ago, hell Skepta played at distortion this summer.

    People are in general slow to embrace new genres. I remember people hating T.I.'s first album, when I had it on in my car, look at him now.

    Skepta has also done a lot of promotion in the us, he made a documentary about it.

    Sorry, meant to say the Danish grime scene. I realize UK grime is bigger in Denmark than it has been previously, but the Danish scene seems to have pretty much died out. Roskilde also booked Skepta for 2016, planning on going.
