UK Grime

UK Grime

A lot of people look at Grime like the musicians in the videos are thugs (roadman) but you will find they are just trying to let a little stress out by telling a story. If you really listen and hear what they have to say they are just like you and me but doing what they do best. In England there is a radio station called BBC 1Xtra many people would have heard of this, and all the top man (getting the most attention on the streets) from around England will  get called into the radio show “fire in the booth” to do a some freestyles live. The first ever Grime music video was released on MTV in 2014 named “German Whip” by “JME & BIG H” it hit number one in the charts for a fair amount of time in England, this alone is a massive jump for the genre of music.

The “Grime scene” is the new up and coming music culture that is taking over England, fast. It is pretty much the same as rap but a little grimier hence the Genre “Grime” it is a lot smoother on your ears than the original American rap. The Grime scene started off in East London in the late 1990s/Early 2000s it developed from the UK garage scene when that went under. Some of the first artist where the famous Dizzee Rascal, Skepta, Kano, Wiley and Lethal Bizzle, they are the originals that made the scene what it is today, now there are literally thousands of grime rappers all over YouTube starting to make some real cash and getting a name for themselves. The original groups to get started up where “Boy Better Know”, “Roll Deep” and “Ruff Squad” which are massively know amongst England’s youth population.
