as a result of the success of wearing my rolex, and dance wiv me, with reference to lethal bizzle too. about 2/3 weeks ago. and then in this issue, theres an article on what 'dance wiv me' means for dizzee and grime, with reference to lethal bizzle.
im not sure if the article is online, but ill try and track it down.
thats mine though.
a concept, to be fair. Do you/they do anything about how grime has had to take an electro direction to gain mainstream acceptance?
i said how the wiley single sounds like clubby electro, stuff like bodyrox and shit like that.
copyright of any article that mentions the three biggest stars in British hip-hop/grime?
or in actual fact what im claiming is, i thought of this idea before the nme.
it's like me doing a premier league season preview four weeks ago and going mental at all the national papers two weeks later.
Wiley and Dizzee Rascal have both had big hits in a relatively short space of time. This is very obvious as neither has had a hit this big before. Other people are going to have noticed this. It's not really that surprising people are going to write articles about why it's happened. Just as they would had two folk singers had big hits this summer, or any other relatively minority genre.
Claiming anyone else doing so is copying you is pretty silly. But funny. So keep it up.
all the NME ever does anyway. Finds trends and writes ott articles about how it's revolutionising/destroying music.
the exact slant and much of the article covers the same issues i talked about though. its not particularly original of them.
How old are you?
they didnt steal the wiley artical idea did they?
but they didnt mention wiley, just dizzee and lethal bizzle, basically from the same slant as me!
he's failing everything
but now isnt really making grime, and is making watered down stuff, and collaborating with anyone he can in order to tap into the mainstream/indie markets.
i really liked more fire crew, but he's the most embarrassing person on earth.
he's a lot worse than dizzee rascal.
rap is more about being popular than rock, they don't really think about selling out. they think about TEH MONEYZ
and i wonder why it is that its all geared to making money and being popular, rather than making music you predominantly are passionate about.
i quite like lethal bizzle though, hes amusing and i dont think he takes himself too seriously, and is a laugh. the people who like indie or whatever who adopt him as a token grime artist annoy me though.
they all go for the money in a big way, to do with getting out of the ghetto and stuff. i'm not sure why it happens in england though, especially with something as willfully harsh and dirty as grime. i thought they took pride in being inaccessable
and some just see it as a business. i just am suprised the grime artists are focusing on the money side, when i thought the whole idea of grime was its darkness and stuff. if they wanted to pop artists they could have started out like that. i dunno... i still love dizzee
swells is the lowest the nme have sank. then beaumont
is beaumont still going?
WHO KNOWS WHAT HE MIGHT SAY NEXT!
THEY'RE A BIT LEFT FIELD WITH THEIR MAKE UP INNIT? IT'S GOOD TO BE WORKING CLASS. I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE COS I GOT THE ENEMY ALBUM. <3 GLASVEGAS
yes it, brizzes and finks with the shrank of the streets that the kids are flanging from yesturday.
mark that doesnt make sense....those arent real words.
mmmm. go away please. buzz..buzz buz...buzzzzz (mark flaps around the room, assured that he is carried by the positive vibes from the kids that worship his mighty pen)
and don't you for-bimp it.
writes FACT: in caps before going on to make an obviously contentious statement deserves to die a slow and painful death. if they do it as a journalist it makes me want music to stop just so they cant write about it anymore.
That's writing about toffee's.
he gets his own weekly column for his OPINIONS and a blog!! and big interviews!! he's a right cunt. so is hamish macbain.
zapsta looking down his nose at you.. pretty low
Pretty standard, really.
Story: when I was a kid, I made up the idea of toyland. Imagine my horror when I switched on the tv and someone had already made noddy in toyland!
the further from the forefront of musical inventiveness and extremes they become? the examples given are fairly obvious ones as they are all playing Reading this weekend, and some other stuff about a subject that i don't know too well.
because i think for the most part people can continue to be inventive whatever age, just the more they become established, and focused on the mainstream, the more they tend to have to 'water down' their music in order to maintain mainstream attenton and success.
look at the transition between ...and justice for all (with a first big single) and the black album, or bloc party, who had a fairly good debut, then tried to be gay or something. and you should probably sue them
interesting music is ignored in favour of the poppy stuff that isnt half as exciting.
i guess its just because most people dont care that much about music.
Cat period and Neolithic twittering from a bunch of forever-young studenty jizz-bogs who believe their putting a mark on the stomach of youth,-----when really, all their doing is pandering to the little scally-wags who aren’t able to penetrate the fashionista groups because their too busy posting a blog about riding in a wheelie bin and throwing up on fences.
